WPC 2010: Washington, D.C., July 12-15

The 2010 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference time and location is set: Washington, D.C., from July 12-15. The location continues Microsoft's practice over the last few years of picking hot and muggy places for the July conference (Houston, New Orleans), although the conference seems to be drifting back north. With a disproportionate amount of U.S. IT spending expected to come out of the federal government over the next few years, holding the event in the nation's capital certainly makes good business sense. In any case, the Washington location is sweet news for me -- I'm based near Baltimore.
