Application Development: Eight 'Big Brains' to Watch at Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference
Microsoft's Professional Developers Conference (PDC) is the company's showcase for new technology for the software developer community. This year, Microsoft is launching a series of talks by its technical leaders, including Microsoft technical fellows and distinguished engineers. Microsoft has dubbed this series the "Big Brains" series, borrowed from another series involving these technical luminaries. Microsoft officials said these are the innovators who develop and drive technical strategies for Microsoft and the industry. The company is inviting attendees at PDC to "participate in a perfect storm of brilliance, insight, experience and vision as we bring together Microsoft's Technical Fellows for the Technical Leaders series of sessions at PDC09." This slide show presents eight of Microsoft's technical leaders and what they will be talking about at PDC in Los Angeles Nov. 17-19.
