MEDC 2005 is nearly upon us. Like many other mobile (and embedded) developers I’m looking forward to this years event which promises to cover the whole range of topics: devices, tools, managed code, native code etc
I’ll be acting as roving reporter for Pocket PC Thoughts during the event so I don’t expect to be posting updates here. However I hope you will join us over at Pocket PC Thoughts to catch up on what is happening during MEDC.
Following the main MEDC 2005 which I’m sure you’ve all heard about, there are a number of smaller events happening worldwide to bring the highlights to the wider audience. One of these is happening in the UK at Microsoft’s campus in Reading on Friday the 10th of June. You can now register for the event, which is free but places are limited.
More details on Marcus Perryman’s Blog, and the MEDC 2005 UK site.
