Microsoft’s Professional Developers Conference (PDC) is a conference for software developers; usually Windows developers. It covers new and upcoming technology from the Microsoft stable, and so only occurs in the years when there is something new to talk about. The conference is typically hosted by the Los Angeles Convention Centre in Los Angeles, California, but this year it will be held at the Microsoft campus situated in Redmond, Washington.
