The MDC is a great information source for Developers. Started last year, the MDC is becoming "The" Microsoft conference in the middle east ...
For those who missed the PDC (Los Angeles, October 2003), this is a great opportunity to have a look at the future with Longhorn, Yukon and Whidbey ... The three products that will change Microsoft technology, and place managed code at the center of every Microsoft product ...
This year, the conference will be opened by Bill Gates himself (for the first time in Middle East).
There are a few of my friends and fellow RDs speaking :
For myself, I'll be giving 4 sessions. 3 sesions on Office System development (using XML in Word and Excel, InfoPath, and Visual Studio Tools for Office), and a mobility session on developing mobile applications with the compact framework (I will dwell quite a bit on smartphone development, on performance considerations and tips, and I will introduce the new mobility features of Visual Studio Whidbey).
