PDC 2003 Questions ...

P: n/a
I've been considering attending the PDC 2003 conference in Los Angeles. I
was there for the PDC2001 and found it to be ground breaking ... with the
whole .NET/XP push. So today after upgrading/implementing all the fancy
..NET jazz we are in a good position, things are running as they should be,
and surprisingly my VB.NET Apps are totally crash resistant ... thanks to
TRY / CATCH.

Now the question comes up, with all the new Longhorn, Whidbey, Yukon
technologies coming up, how big of a jump could it possibly be ? Are we
talking another ground breaking jump like from DOS --> 3.11 , VB6 -->
VB.NET. If I can convince my client to look into these technologies, and
upgrade, I'm there!

Also, I couldn't find info anywhere on which software bundles will be given
@ PDC. Last time I think MS gave dozens of beta's and full versions of XP
Pro. I also didn't see any info on post conference Video Streams of the
sessions. The streams were extremely helpful, and I picked up more from
them, than in person. I would consider the DVD option as well.

Thanks in Advance,
Amit Chandel

I dont mean to rain on the parade, but the whole bit about writing stored
proc's in VB/C# is really no big thing, considering that you have always
been able to do this via DTC & Extended stored procs (not in .NET but
still...). Although, I must admit, I am excited to see what else is in store
for the new MSSQL Server.
