The Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference Approaches

If you're anywhere near Greater Boston, you'd be forgiven for thinking that this week is the storm before the calm, given the rain we've had lately. But, in truth, it's the calm before the storm.

That's because Microsoft will hold its Worldwide Partner Conference next week in New Orleans. And while storms are still (understandably) a sensitive subject on the banks of the Mississippi, we're only talking here about a metaphorical storm. This one will bring partners, not rain, pouring into NOLA. (By the way, we say well-done to Microsoft for selecting New Orleans for both Convergence and the Partner Conference this year. RCPU is officially a big fan of the Big Easy.)

RCPmag.com has had you covered for a while on what to see and do at the show, as well as much of what's going to happen there. So we're not really here to add anything, only to tell you that while your editor will not (alas) be making the trip to New Orleans himself, RCP Editor in Chief Scott Bekker will be. Scott will be writing RCPU next week directly from the WWPC, so please give him a warm reception when you see his updates in your inbox or online.

And, in the meantime, if there's anything you'd like to see covered at the show or any particular questions you'd like to know the answers to (about anything, but mainly about the WWPC), pass along whatever is on your mind to [email protected]
