News from Microsoft's Worldwide Partner Conference

I have the Microsoft WPC App installed in my Facebook. This morning, I eagerly poured a cup of coffee, got onto the app and began watching the Keynotes.

In the many years that I have been attending the Microsoft Convergence confence, I find that the only way to make progress on my list is to have each member of my team [...]
