Last year Microsoft announced the 2007 Professional Developers Conference (PDC) and I immediately booked the flights and hotel.  They then canceled the PDC.  Nevertheless I flew out to LA and had a great time spending a week immersed in technology, doing my very own "Personal" PDC, with no interruptions, spending all the hours I wanted.  It took me right back to the days before I was married, before I had kids, and I guess before I had a life.

Microsoft have just announced the 2008 PDC in LA, and I've signed up for it.  I'm pretty sure this one won't get canceled.

If you are attending and feel like a chat about anything, including any of the products I've created such as MceFM, the ListSearch Extender, PromptSQL or J-Integra or anything else please email me at damian at
