Talking about Dev & IT Pro Days 2007, IIS 7.0 and moving to Redmond
Developer & IT Pro Days 2007 has come to an end. This year's edition in Ghent was in my opinion the best edition so far; congratulations to the entire organization: Tom, Ritchie, David, Arlindo, Wim and many others who made it a great success once more. I think the technical curiosity of the audience has been satisfied a bunch; let's make it even better next year!
For me, it was a quite busy week too. Yesterday, I delivered my talk on IIS 7.0 for developers, focusing on the most exciting features in the next-generation web application server platform from Microsoft. More specifically, we focused on extensibility using managed code (handlers and modules), the configuration system, the new IIS Manager and a bit of diagnostics and security. I'll post demo scripts and sample code later this week or beginning of next week, so stay tuned!
But Dev & IT Pro Days 2007 was also an important milestone for me. On the conference I made it official: starting October this year, I'll join the Microsoft Corporation headquarters in Redmond, WA to start to work on the WPF team, taking on a role as SDE in Building 10. I'll talk about the whole story later in a separate blog post.
PS: No worries, I'll keep blogging about exciting topics over here for the next couple of months!Del.icio.us
