Microsoft: MEDC Cancelled
Frank Prengel broke the news that Microsoft was indeed cancelling MEDC on Jan 8th and Mike Hall confirmed it in the Windows Embedded blog this past Friday. Last year in 2007, 8,500 developers attended its Las Vegas conference and around the world. Instead Microsoft expects developers to attend the Embedded Systems Conference West in Silicon Valley and its own Tech Ed Conference in Orlando.
In the text sent out to past attendees:
In 2008, two major highlights for the Windows Embedded team include Microsoft's Tech•Ed Conference and the Embedded Systems Conference West. At both events, you'll find a Windows Embedded track with the same high quality technical content that you've come to expect from MEDC.
