Aside from the major product launches starting January 29th, Microsoft recently announced the date of its other major customer events planned for 2007:
- MIX07: Microsoft’s Premier conference for Web Developers, designers and business professionals is scheduled for April 30th to May 2nd. Event location will be Las Vegas, Nevada.
- Tech·Ed 2007: Microsoft’s premier all-in-one event for IT Professionals and developers is scheduled for June 4th to 8th. Event location will be Orlando, Florida.
- PDC 2007: Microsoft’s Professional Developers Conference is scheduled for October 2nd to October 5th, with pre-conference activities starting September 30th. Event location will be Los Angeles, California.
The difference between the three events? While MIX and PDC both target the developer community, PDC is focused on the future of the Microsoft platform while MIX explores the next generation Web technologies that move user experience forward. PDC addresses the developer community, MIX also targets designers and business professionals. TechEd targets both IT Professionals and developers, with a strong focus on training for current technologies and shipping products. The PDC is primarily focused on the future, and Microsoft’s roadmap of what’s to come.
