New Zealand IT professionals will get their first close look at Microsoft's .NET vision at next week's TechEd 2000 conference.
Keynote speakers, Michael Risse and Pat Helland, will focus on the .NET strategy - the connected, post-PC model for Internet computing unveiled by Microsoft founder and chief software architect Bill Gates last month. The theme of the conference is 'It's time to build the Business Internet',
Terry Allen, business solutions group manager at Microsoft New Zealand, says Microsoft.NET "provides the fundamental vision and building blocks" for Microsoft's vision of its future.
"Windows 2000 is the cornerstone of Windows DNA architecture and therefore of the .NET vision. Enabling New Zealand professionals to build the .NET vision by developing world-class applications is a major focus of TechEd 2000. Helping them use the Windows platform in tandem with other applications, including third-party solutions, is an important part of the conference."
TechEd sessions run from August 3 to 5 at the Auckland Convention Centre (formerly the Aotea Centre). Information on the conference is on the Microsoft Website at: http://www.microsoft.com/nz/teched2000
