PDC05: My Pre-con session selections
I'm still researching my main PDC session picks, but here are my tenative pre-con selections...
Sunday 09/11/05 - "Windows Internals"
Presented by: Mark Russinovich, David Solomon
Monday 09/12/05 - "Framework Design Guidelines: The Art of Building a Reusable Class Library"
Presented by: Brad Abrams & Krzysztof Cwalina
As for my picks, anyone who knows me can't be shocked by the Monday session. I have probably sent 50 emails this year with links to various articles on Brad's and Krys' blogs.
On the other hand, the Windows Internals session selection was a surprise even to me. Its really David's fault. He spoke highly of previous incarnations of this class and convinced me that my knowledge of the Windows kernal and other internals really sucks. He is right of course - eventhough I have used many of the sysinternals tools, I probably grok less than 10% of what they are trying to tell me. Hopefully this session will help get me started in the right direction.
P.S. I wonder if anyone realized that the first pre-cons were on 9/11...hmmm
