Bill Gates, Microsoft Corporation chairman and chief software architect is expected to deliver the keynote speech at the conference. “Developers and the developer community are Microsoft’s number one asset. Bill’s visit to Cairo and his keynote speech this year conveys a strong belief in the potential of the Middle East to play a key role in the global software marketplace,” says Ali Faramawy, regional director for Microsoft Middle East and Africa. MDC is targeted at regional developers, designers, software architects and independent software vendors (ISV) to promote application development on Microsoft’s .Net environment. A number of international technology experts and executives are expected to give in-depth technical sessions and demonstrations. Participants can expect to get a sneak preview of Microsoft’s Windows next release code-named ‘Longhorn’, the next release of Microsoft SQL Server code-named ‘Yukon’ as well as the upcoming version of Microsoft Visual Studio.NET development suite, code-named ‘Whidbey’. “These are the next generation technologies that the software development industry in the Middle East will use to build robust, secure, scalable and reliable solutions for their customers, ” adds Faramawy.
