Going to California

I’m flying to San Jose tonight for tomorrow’s OpenAjax Alliance face to face meeting, which Microsoft is hosting. On Friday, we are also hosting a new event that aims at establishing a dialogue between JavaScript library developers and Microsoft. We’ll have talks from the IE, Visual Studio and ASP.NET teams, as well as talks from members of the community. This should be very interesting.

Then I’ll be flying to L.A. for the PDC. If you’re going to be there and want to chat, feel free to drop me a note at bleroy at Microsoft.

I’ll be in the room during Stephen Walthers’ session on jQuery and ASP.NET on Tuesday from 5:15 to 6:30 (403AB).

I’ll also do a short demo in Scott Hunter’s talk on the ASP.NET 4.0 Roadmap on Monday from 1:45 to 3:00 (153).

Other sessions I’ll attend include Phil Haack’s MVC session (Monday, 3:30 in 153), Jeff King’s talk on Visual Studio Web Development Futures (Monday, 5:15 in 153), the panel talk on the future of programming languages (Wednesday 10:30 in 403AB), Frank Savage’s XNA Game Studio talk (Wednesday, 12:00 in 501B), Anders Heljsberg’s talk on C# (Wednesday 3:00 in 502A), Miguel de Icaza’s talk on Mono (Wednesday at 4:45 in 515B) and of course Stefan Schackow’s ASP.NET Cache Extensibility talk (Thursday 10:15 in 403B) which was the highest rated talk during our dry-run of the conference…

And of course, I’ll be on stage for my own talk on ASP.NET 4.0 AJAX on Thursday from 1:45 to 3:00 (Petree Hall CD), which will pretty much close the show. I’ll be building a small application using client templates, bindings, some jQuery and ADO.NET Data Services.
