Microsoft's Software + Services (S+S) and Development Platform Evangelism (DPE) teams have joined forces and will be using CodeMash 2009 to showcase some upcoming technology releases! CodeMash attendees will have a chance to learn about the just-announced Azure cloud computing platform, Visual Studio 2010, and the .NET 4.0 framework and languages.
Join the Microsoft team in the Banyan room, where you'll be able to work through a number of hands on labs hosted on 15 desktop workstations. MS team members will be manning the room throughout the entire conference and PreCompiler, waiting to help you learn about Azure, .NET 4.0, and the next release of Visual Studio (VS 2010).
Additionally, the Ironwood room will be set up as a lounge where you can relax and talk tech with other Microsofties. There will also be a few breakout sessions on Azure presented in Ironwood throughout the conference. Check your program guide and schedules posted outside the Ironwood room for more details.
This is a terrific addition to CodeMash 2009, and it was made possible because of the passion, open-mindedness, and drive for learning that CodeMash attendees bring to the conference!
