RCP at the WPC

It's the biggest show of the year for Microsoft Partners and the biggest event of the year for Redmond Channel Partner magazine and RCPU alike: It's the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference, and it kicks off next week in Houston.

Before you go, you simply must check out RCP's preview video, starring your editor and RCP Editor in Chief Scott Bekker (although not necessarily in that order -- you might say that this video has no lone star).

We'll be at the WPC in a big way; you might even say that we're going to cover this event Texas-style, pardners. Yee-haw! (OK, we promise not to bombard you with too much Texas shtick over the next two weeks. Then again, just how much Texas shtick is too much? Remember, your editor is a native.)

Anyway, we'll have a special portal just gushing information (like Spindletop) at RCPmag.com/wpc, and we'll be blogging our fingers to the bone, so check in frequently for updates. (You can even get a headstart right now by checking out Scott's entries on the speaker lineup and attendance numbers. In fact, you might just want to sit at your laptop and reload the portal all day.) Also, check your inbox for show-themed issues of RCPU written by your editor and by Mr. Bekker -- starting with a special edition this Sunday penned by the EIC his own self.

We're also going to have a wrap-up video online at some point during the week of the show, which you won't want to miss, especially if you saw the preview video (which, if you haven't, you should now).

So, we'll see you in Houston -- or online -- next week. Oh, and by the way, there won't be an RCPU on Thursday. Happy July 4, everybody! (And, for our fellow Americans specifically, happy Independence Day!)
