Worldwide Partner Conference 09 - Ballmer Keynote

Microsoft's annual Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC) day 2 kicks off today at 8:30am CDT (see all time zones).

Allison L. Watson, head of the Worldwide Partner Group at Microsoft will feature again at WPC, introducing the keynote speakers and interviewing live audience members.

Steve Ballmer, chief executive officer of Microsoft, will be the primary keynote speaker of the day. Ballmer oversees Microsoft as a whole after assuming full management responsibility for the company in 2000. Previously, Ballmer has headed several Microsoft divisions, including operations, operating systems development, and sales and support.

Bob Muglia, president of the Server and Tools Business (STB) at Microsoft, will also join Ballmer in todays keynotes. Muglia is responsible for developing and marketing Microsoft infrastructure and developer software. We expect Muglia to focus on Microsoft's Azure Services Platform.

You can follow the announcements live on Microsoft's WPC site where they will have the keynotes streaming from 8:30AM CDT (other time zones).

I now know not to watch one of those anymore.

In a nutshell: Steve Ballmer just saying "In these financial times, we will keep going", but like, in a million different ways.

He has the ability to appear completely mental and boring at the same time.

What do you guys expect its a partners conference. Just showing their partners ways to sell their stuff to the public.

Nothing for us end users.(unless your in IT)

Think Ballmer will announce 7 RTM today?

the other dude allready said that it would be later this month on the live stream

I will always prefer a CEO who shout "developers, developers, developers..." to a CEO who shout "politicians, politicians, politicians, washington, washington, washington, brussels, brussels, brussels, lobbyist, lobbyist, lobbyist..." like many others do (especially those in the "too big to fail" "businesses").
