Microsoft TechDays Coming Soon
Mark your calendar: Dec 4 marks Winnipeg's episode of TechDays 2008.
What are TechDays 2008? From the Canadian Devs blog:
TechDays 2008 is our largest technical education conference series for IT Professionals and Developers in Canada ever. It focuses on providing you with skills development through deep technical training, a place to connect with your peers and the opportunity to learn and evaluate across a wide range of technical sessions. The broad technical education at TechDays is delivered by Microsoft, Partners, and industry experts.
In short, it will be a full day, multi-track conference: think of it as your very own TechEd/PDC. While it isn't free (it will be $124.99 until Oct 15, when the full $249.99 price hits), look at the stuff you get for attending:
