Windows 7: Free Windows 7 Seminar with Mark Russinovich (and Frien

Free Windows 7 Seminar with Mark Russinovich (and Frien

Have you ever wondered how Windows 7 resumes from sleep in less than 2 seconds? Or how Windows 7 can scale up to 256 cores? Or maybe you just want to want to learn about any Kernel improvements that will make your application run faster with no extra effort from you?

Well, guess what? On Monday, November 16th, the day before PDC 2009 starts, we are running a FREE Windows 7 Workshop–AKA Windows 7 Developer Boot Camp. That is  right, it's FREE for anyone who wants to attend. Windows 7 is one of the most exciting pivotal releases of the year. As part of the wave of activity surrounding the product launch, we're opening up this workshop to anyone who wants to attend - even if you're not able to join the rest of the conference. So, if you live LA, its surroundings, or even the Bay Area, you can attend this workshop for FREE!

Wait a minute! By now, you must be thinking to yourself, “If it is free, it can’t be that good.” Well it turns out that this Windows 7 Developers Boot Camp will include top Microsoft Windows experts like Mark Russinovich, Landy Wang, and Arun Kishan. These are the guys who are behind a large number of the amazing performance improvements in Windows 7, and this is your onetime chance to meet them in person for an intense, deep, and high-quality session. Mark, Landy, and Arun will start by talking about Kernel and architectural improvements, for example, the Kernel Dispatcher Lock, new and even more efficient Windows Memory Management, and Trigger Start Services, among many other topics.

Next, they’ll take a dive deep into the different APIs, paying special attention to the new shell integration points in Windows 7 such as the taskbar, libraries, and search. Right after that, they’ll give some tips for getting the most out of today’s hardware using the Sensor & Location platform, multitouch, and the new graphics libraries (Direct2D, DirectX 11) that take advantage of the GPU.

Regardless of whether you’re a C++, C#, or Visual Basic developer, if you're building a Windows application and you want your application to have the best possible performance, experience, and look-and-feel while running on Windows 7, this event is for you! I know I will be there; what about you?
