    At the start of April 2010, Microsoft announced Windows Summit 2010, an event dedicated to software, device and system implementers looking to embrace Windows 7 and Internet Explorer 8. Initially, Microsoft was looking to bring not only hardware and software designers, but also technology developers, engineers, testers, etc. together in Redmond for the Windows Summit 2010. When it initially announced the event, the company emphasized that Windows 7 and IE8 would be the main focus, with no announcements planned in relation to Windows 8.
    While this aspect remains unchanged, the Windows Summit 2010 will no longer take place at the company’s Redmond campus. According to Brandon LeBlanc, Windows communications manager on the Windows Client Communications Team, the event has been moved online, and will no longer require participants to travel to Redmond.

    In keeping with LeBlanc, the decision was made in order to ensure that the Windows Summit 2010 would be accessible to as many people as possible. Moving the event online also means that the Redmond company will be providing additional tools and resources designed to help participants better navigate the content that will be made available.

    LeBlanc also shared the schedule for “Windows Summit 2010:
