PDC is finally here

Over the last few months it has seemed like every interesting discussion about MS products has some how involved a “just wait until PDC” statement.  Thankfully PDC is finally here.  Tomorrow Ray Ozzie and Bob Muglia kick it off with a keynote starting at 8:30 am PT.  On Tuesday there are two keynotes one from 8:30-10:30 with Ray Ozzie, Scott Guthrie, and David Treadwell and then another one from 11:00-12:30 with Don Box and Chris Anderson.  The second one is for sure about Oslo and demoing that.  If I had to guess the first one on Tuesday will involve a Live Mesh show and tell – I wonder what Monday will bring with Muglia and Ozzie – VS2010 stuff to show??

The “goods” or the “bits” won’t be given to attendees until Tuesday – undoubtably because they don’t want the surprises slated for the keynotes to slip out beforehand.  I will be busy twittering for sure and probably a little live blogging as well.  Can’t wait to get started tomorrow. 

I am staying up in Hollywood as all the Conference hotels were sold out by the time I registered (or at least the ones that where semi-reasonable were sold out).  So I am taking the Metro into the Convention Center every morning.  Not too bad actually – I actually enjoyed the experience today – we’ll see if I get tired of it as the week wears on.  The only bummer is no cell reception on the metro – is it like that in New York and other places (Washington D.C.) – if so that is lame – and if not then why hasn’t LA figured out how to make it work yet?

    Hey Brian,
    I’m hoping for lots of information later today about Windows Strata – their new OS for the cloud. Specifically I want to know what enhancements have gone into SQL Server Data Services (SSDS) since MIX07 and, more importantly, how SSDS fits into the "bigger picture" of Windows Strata.

    Hey Jamie – looks like we know – Windows Strata is Windows Azure and SSDS is getting beefed up with more than just a data store (Reporting Services and Analysis Services).  I haven’t drilled into it a whole lot – what do you think?  Are you here at PDC?  If what have you found on the SSDS (or now SDS which I think is the new name).
