I’m off to Microsoft’s Professional Development Conference (PDC) this week in Los Angeles.  If you haven’t been to PDC, picture this:  take the US BorCon, multiply by 4 (or is it 10?  hard to count when they won’t sit still), and remove all non-company speakers. PDC’s greatest difference from BorCon is that PDC is exclusively a Microsoft […]
