Pakistan Developer Conference (Microsoft) - Highlights Day 1

* A crowd of around 1500 developers and IT professional from Karachi, Lahore and Islamabad gathered in Pearl Continental hotel's Ballroom 1 and 2 to mark the Keynote session of the conference oganized by Microsoft Paksitan for the third consecutive year.

* Presided by chairman NADRA Brig (Retd) Saleem Ahmed Moeen

* Teasing and really annoying were the redundant security checks

* Nice was the kit provided to each conference attendee consisted of a bag, some microsoft CDs and other literature and this month's spider magazine, that I already had bought earlier :(

* Youngest Microsoft Certified Professional (hailing from Multan) was rewarded along with others.

*Disappointing was the presentation (Not content but actual presentation) of the chairman NADRA Brig (Retd) Saleem Ahmed Moeen, I think NADRA being the most hi-tec institution in the country should review thier corporate communication standards as it really portrays the image and of organisation, and in my opinion NADRA is one of the best in the world as far as implementation of technology is concerned.
Future Perspective

* Dynamic Systems Initiative- A concept of sort of smart applications responding and behaving to adapt to new interfaces, changes and other integrating and acting dynamically.

* Domain System Language - Envisioning a new way of developing applications in future, based entirely on analysis and design standards such as UML. Totally integrated development environment in order to develop systems sticking to the business model and logic at each and every stage.

* Web Services Inter-operatibility

* Hosting Models - Con't figure out exactly what they are! Mr Rafal Lukawiecki I think mentioned it briefly but need to take some time to sort it out.

* Info Path .... Services Schema Designer

* Data Driven Caching (Page caching) in .net-This was one of the most informative session for me, Mr Stephen Forte (Regional Manager New York - Microsoft) presented with great enthusiasm and style all the lastest developments and facilities offered by .net.

* XML X-Query and XPath .. again very informative session from Mr. Stephen Forte

* At the end of the day we had around an hour of Q & A session covering all sort of
development questions directed to all the spearker and presenter. All in all at the end it was a great day and quite a learning one indeed. Now it 2 at night . gotta get it early tomorrow.

  • Great. How was the conference overall? Was it really informative? Did you feel it's just a marketing scheme at some point?

  • well, the overall experience was great as I learned a lot of new stuff and came across upcomming BIG THINGS.

    As far as marketing is concerned, Yes, obviously Microsoft orgainzes such events to market its products and that is one aspect, but these developer conferences all over the world are aimed at bringing professional and developers tegother,spread awareness, discuss, brainstrom and pin point the emerging and existing technologies. PDC was not just an 'Informative' experience rather it was a great learning one, becuase you can directly interact with professionals from all over the world (The lecturers) and also have a chance to meet a lot of poeple from your very own field (attending the similar sessions).

    May be I am too excited :) so I would stop here otherwise this trains of words will go on and on........ :)

    Is this an undiscovered gem priced to go higher!!
    Please read the following Announcement in its Entirety and Consider the Possibilities�
    Watch this One to Trade!

    IFLH announces Senator David Cain has joined its Board of Directors!!

    IFLH volume trading is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement. The value of this
    stock appears poised for growth! This one should not remain on the ground floor for long.

    BREAKING NEWS!!
    InterFinancial Holdings, Corp. (OTC Pink Sheets: IFLH - News) announced that they have added
    David Cain to their board of directors. David Cain is currently the Chairman of the advisory
    board to TTI (Texas Transportation Institute). Senator Cain represented Senate District 2 for
    eight years in the Texas Senate and Chaired the Senate State Affairs Subcommittee on
    Transportation and served nine terms in the Texas House of Representatives for District 107.

    During his twelve years as Chairman of the House Committee on Transportation, Senator Cain�s
    efforts on behalf of the people of Texas have been widely recognized. He was named to Texas
    Monthly Magazine�s list of Ten Best Legislators, the Dallas Morning News said he was one of
    the outstanding legislators of the 73rd session, and the Texas Department of Transportation
    awarded him the Russell H. Perry Award in 1995 for his efforts to gain public awareness of
    the need for and benefits of transportation facilities in the State of Texas.

    Jeffrey C. Bruteyn, Managing Director, stated, We at InterFinancial are proud to have such a
    widely recognized Senator join our board and oversee out automotive lending division. His
    affiliations and connections to the automotive industry will be invaluable to our company.
    Senator Cain will be instrumental in expediting our approval to use a government issued Seller
    Finance License.

    Seller Finance Licenses are very difficult to obtain and are usually reserved for the Big Boys
    with heavy lobbyists. These licenses are highly coveted because it allows the finance company
    to collect the entire down payment, instead of paying a portion of it to the taxing authority.
    This dramatically helps a finance company�s bottom line if the buyer defaults on the loan.

    With the new GPS tracking systems being installed on every car to dramatically improve
    repossessions and with Senator Cain on the Board of Directors, InterFinancial Holdings
    is ready to take their business to the next level.

    Conclusion:

    The examples above show the Awesome, Earning Potential of little known Companies
    That Explode onto Investor�s Radar Screens. This stock will not be a Secret for long.
    Then You May Feel the Desire to Act Right Now! And Please Watch This One Trade!!
    GO IFLH!

  • Being new to the whole internet thing, I was fortunate enough to find a site where registering a domain name was pretty simple. I've read a few horror stories about how some domain services limit the control you have over the domain you buy, but Netclientpro really helped me with registering a domain name
