It looks like PDC is starting to wind down (just as I get my process for summarising/link blogging it sorted), and the big hit in terms of posts seems to be C# 4. Today marks a return of some PDC specific sections, and another large edition of the Brew.


  • The Web Deployment Tool Beta 2 is now available! – The IIS Team announce the release of the Web Deployment Tool Beta 2 with a number of new features for packaging your application.
  • "Geneva" Beta available now – The Geneva team announce the availability of Geneva, a platform for simple user access based on claims based authentication. The release includes bits for developers, infrastructure guys and also cardspace integration.


PDC Session Bloggers

There are a number of bloggers who are live blogging sessions from PDC 2008, here are a few of the best I’ve come across

  • Paul Gielens – Paul has been producing nice posts for the sessions he attends, complete with hand drawn diagrams and slides. I wonder if they are paper drawn or tablet PC drawn?
  • Bill Evjen – Bill has notes for a number of sessions from PDC
  • – John Papa has some notes form the keynotes from day 1 and 2.
  • Joseph Guadagno – Joseph has been doing a nice job of live blogging the talks, even managing to get source code written in his posts.
  • Ryan Rinaldi – Ryan has been blogging sessions from PDC as he attends them
