Remember the launch parties for Visual Studio 2005 & SQL Server 2005? Well, on January 18, 2007 Microsoft is holding a combo Visa and Office Launch event in Tampa, FL. Going to be a big deal as they've rented out a big venue, the Tampa Convention Center, to hold the numbers they are expecting for this all day event. There will be three tracks, two for IT Professionals and one developer track. The developer track will have five sessions that will be copresented with someone from the Microsoft & someone from the local community.
I'm copresenting a session with James Cuomo (MSFT Office Solution Specialist) on Building Key Business Applications on the Office 2007 Server Platform which will cover things like Web Parts, workflow ECM, BDC, BI, search, and much more! The other speakers for the entire track include Russ Fustino (MSFT Across America Team), David McNamee (MSFT Office Developer Specialist), Joe Healy (MSFT Developer Evangelist), Jeff Barnes (MSFT Architect Evangelist), Jon Goodyear (MVP & MSDN Regional Director), Shervin Shakibi (MVP & MSDN Regional Director), Tom Fuller (MVP), and Ted Pattison (MVP). Should be a great place to get your fill off Office & Vista developer topics!
Here's the full session lineup for the developer track (order TBD):
- Office & Vista - Better Together : Russ Fustino & Jon Goodyear
- Connecting & Extending Office 2007 Client Applications : David McNamee & Ted Pattison
- Building Key Business Applications on the Office 2007 Server Platform : James Cuomo & Andrew Connell
- Building Differentiated User Experiences with Windows Vista : Joe Healy & Shervin Shakibi
- Building Connected Applications with Windows Vista : Jeff Barnes & Tom Fuller
This will be the only official Vista & Office Launch Event in Florida... so mark your calendars today!
Registration will be required for this event... I'll repost when registration opens.
