RDA will be well represented at Microsoft’s annual Partner Conference this year July 8-12 in Toronto. There will be more than 15,000 attendees from 150 countries and key Microsoft representatives from the product, marketing and executive ranks. There will be daily “big tent” sessions that include keynote addresses regarding the long-term vision of Microsoft, in-depth presentations on the product road map for 2012 and demonstrations of new product releases as well as not yet released products. There will be hundreds of technical breakout sessions on all products but of particular interest to RDA will be the latest insights on SQL, Azure, Mobile, BI and Windows 8.
There is also a huge Solution Center with booths that provide hands-on access to Microsoft products manned by Microsoft technology specialists and product managers as well as hundreds of Microsoft partner companies like RDA who also have booths showcasing their products and services.
Finally, there is a networking meeting option that enables people to request meetings with any participants, including most of the Microsoft technical specialists.
To give you a better idea of the concentration of topics, Microsoft has created Tracks to make it easy to locate classes, presentations, etc. relevant to broad areas of interest. The tracks RDA participants will follow include Application Lifecycle Management and Software Development, The Future of Productivity (Cloud), Hosting and Cloud Service Providers, Server Data and Cloud, and Windows Phone.
