The opening keynotes at DevConnections/WinConnections had a seemingly endless wall of people in attendance. The topic was Vista, Exchange, Office, and Atlas. This is by far the biggest Connections crowd ever. A few Microsoft announcements were made at the keynotes, including:
- Office 12 has shipped to manufacturing.
- .NET 3.0 Framework for Windows XP released to manufacturing
- ASP.NET Ajax Extensions announced and Beta 2 is now released.
- .NET 2005 Tools for Office 2007 released. And it’s now free.
Excitement is definitely in there. More keynotes this morning on Atlas, etc. Followed by drill-down sessions by Microsoft all today.
More bloggers are on board, including:
