Comments from the Editor
AppFabric, SQL Azure, Dallas, PinPoint, oData. If these terms are familiar to you, then you are likely attending or watching Microsoft's PDC Conference in California. With an estimated attendance of 3500 plus another 1500 associated with Microsoft, total attendance is rumored to be near 5000 at this year's PDC. If you look around, the attendance feels a lot less than this. Even so, it is a great conference for networking and meeting others interested in Microsoft technologies.

There are a couple of Codeguru members at this conference. We'll try to get some comments and perspectives posted this week and next!
