Windows 7: Windows 7 Deep Dive Lab Event

17 Jun 2009   #1

Windows 10 Workstation x64
Windows 7 Deep Dive Lab Event

In this post I will deviate from our normal routine of writing about Windows 7 features, APIs, and code samples, and will instead talk a little about an amazing opportunity to attend the Windows 7 "Deep Dive" Development Lab at the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, Washington on 6-8 July 2009.

A Deep Dive lab enables you to work on scenarios of your choice with experts from the Windows 7 product team. This is not a traditional training event. This is a special onetime event and a unique opportunity to meet the people who build Windows 7. The agenda includes a few presentations and some lab time, but our goal is for you to work on your own application(s) with our experts, focusing on how Windows 7 features like Sensor and Location, Taskbar, Multi-Touch, Libraries, Graphics, Ribbon, XPS & Print Path, Performance and Instrumentation, Troubleshooting Pack, and Application Compatibility can add value to your applications.

If accepted into the Deep Dive lab, you will be working on your own applications with members from the Windows 7 product teams. Meetings with specific team members may also be arranged as required and upon request. We are also available to assist you with Windows 7 compatibility issues to ensure that your application is Windows 7 compatible. Each participating group gets its own lab room, which accommodates up to 4 people, in which to develop the solution.

Who can come?

Up to four people from each company, normally developers and architects.

What does it cost?

There is no charge for the event. Microsoft will provide a light breakfast and lunch during the 3-day event, and will also provide one on-site dinner. You are responsible for any other expenses including accommodations, travel costs to Redmond, and evening meals.

How do I nominate my organization?

Due to high demand, Deep Dive developer labs have extremely limited capacity, and enrollment is based on a nomination process. Please complete the nomination form and e-mail it to [email protected]. Nominations will be evaluated based on the project scenario and its status. The information you provide will also help us to prepare for your arrival at the Lab. You should receive an acknowledgement e-mail within few business days. Once we have verified your nomination form and selected your team as participants, we will send you more detailed event logistics.

Please do NOT make travel arrangements until your participation has been confirmed.

A deep dive into Windows 7
