I was speaking at the Technical Summit 2008 in Berlin on Windows Embedded Standard, just two weeks ago and was washed away by a lot of questions and interest into the newest release of Microsoft componentized operating system. This is quite remarkable, because the Technical Summit is not an embedded conference, at all!
For me, it is a clear sign that people are beginning to discover the oppotunities available in the connected device market. Embedded products are on the brink to leave their niche and therefore interesting times ly ahead of embedded devlopers.
To put it in a nutshell, great conference, great people!
By the way Berlin, is a great place for events and I am looking forward to have TechED EMEA in this remarkable city next year.
Well, this is quite a statement by somebody living in Bavaria, or?
