I knew there was a reason I had a Windows Mobile phone…

This may well be the coolest thing that I’ve ever seen as far as mobile apps are concerned: an interactive map of the Orlando convention center (yes, where I will be next week at TechEd!) that uses the camera of your Windows Mobile phone. Basically you use it to take a picture of one of the “signposts” that they will have up all over, and it shows you where you are and what sessions are going on near you. Check it out:


If they integrate it in with individual attendees’ schedules (so I can see not just what sessions are going on, but which of the sessions I’ve added to my schedule are going on) I might lose it because it’s too damned cool.



About ssimagine

My name is Matthew Roche, and I am a Senior Program Manager with the SQL Server product group at Microsoft. I work on Master Data Services and Data Quality Services, and have previously worked on SQL Server Integration Services. Although I work for Microsoft and will be posting on technical topics, I want to stress that this is a personal blog, and any opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. I built my career around SQL Server and Microsoft technologies for well over a decade before I joined Microsoft as an employee, and I plan on using this blog to share my personal experience and opinions. They may well be shaped by my experience on the SQL Server team, but they’re still mine, and not that of Microsoft, disclaimer, disclaimer, etc., etc..
