Went to PDC? Get into DevDays free...

I like to think I "got my start" at DevDays.  I've been doing DevDays in Portland since before the .COM days.  I used to think it was an annual thing, then one year there just wasn't one.  But, DevDays is back. 

They're live, local, fun, silly, powerful and chock-full of goodness.  I'm a lot less concerned about being dragged off the stage at DevDays that I am at TechEd or PDC, so I KNOW I'll be having a blast.  I usually sneak some fun stuff in to make sure the audience is paying attention. 

I'm going to give Session 4: Developing Secure Web Applications—Examining an End-To-End, Hack-Resilient Application, and Patrick Cauldwell is doing two Smart Client talks...and the man knows his stuff, my friends.

Be sure not to miss your local DevDays.  If you missed TechEd or PDC, go to DevDays.  As a bonus, if you attended PDC, you get in FREE.  There's some great speakers this year (I've seen the list) and a lot more 3rd party involvement than in previous years.

What's this "if you attended PDC, you get in FREE" business?? Presumably that applies to all ciites; not just Portland? How does that work? RSVP code?

Thanks for the info!

Yeah, what's up with that? I signed up using my Passport account, and they had all of my PDC information right there...but they still wanted 75 bucks!

Thanks for the tip, though. Hopefully I can make this work...

Send an email to and they will give you the RSVP code for past PDC attendees.
