Phil was, AFAIK, first to get the drums out and start the DDD Ireland beats sounding here in blogsphere!
The web-site itself carries most of the salient information, however do expect it to change its look’n’feel over the next few weeks – we’re planning to adopt the full Silverlight experience!
This is a DDD-styled event, insomuch as it’s held on a Saturday, it’s free, there are no Microsoft speakers on the agenda, there’s a mix of regular experienced speakers and a few fresh faces and there’s an excellent opportunity for a social activity afterwards!
As of today, there is an agenda available: please, do expect this to change a little bit between now and the event itself. One or two of the speakers are still awaiting the outcome of other commitments.
Over the weeks leading up to the event, we are hoping to publish a number of 5-minute videos from the speakers. These videos will give you a sneak peek at the session content, the speaker and will hopefully help you decide which sessions you want to attend!
In addition to the agenda’s five tracks, there is a WCF In Depth track where you can immerse yourself in the Windows Communication Foundation, learning from Dominick Baier, Christian Weyer, Daniel Fisher and Michael Willers (blog/URL tbc, podcast here). This is essentially a full day’s worth of training that won’t cost you a penny in attendance charges!
In the mean-time, please feel free to keep the jungle drums beating by passing news of this event on to all who might be interested. If you are a Facebook user, we do have a group and an event setup already.

Christian’s name, I’m glad to report, is actually Christian. 🙂
Thanks Oliver – now corrected! Apologies Christian, if you read this before the change 🙂
