Microsoft India is organizing an event in Bangalore on 8-Mar-2007 for developers, focused on application development on the Vista and Office 2007 platform.

With Windows Vista set to become the predominant platform soon, a host of exciting features are now available for developers to build visually stunning, connected and secure applications. With new technologies such as Sidebar Gadgets, WPF, WCF, RSS, Search and Peer-to-Peer, Windows Vista provides new platform capabilities which simplify and enhance application development. The 2007 Office system includes a set of new extensible technologies and the building blocks that enable developers to build a full range of solutions – basic information management to advanced enterprise scale applications - for businesses to realize the potential of the data they’ve been accumulating on their back-ends by exposing it through tools that people use every day.
