About the Seminar

The Internet and the Web have revolutionized our communications, our access to information and our business methods. However, there is still much room for improvement. Frank Clegg will discuss Microsoft's vision for what is beyond browsing and the dotcom. Microsoft .NET (pronounced "dot-net") is a new platform, user experience and set of advanced software services planned to make all devices work together and connect seamlessly. With this next generation of software, Microsoft's goal is to make Internet-based computing and communications easier to use, more personalized, and more productive for businesses and consumers. In his new position of president of Microsoft Canada Co., Frank Clegg will be responsible for leading the organization toward the delivery of Microsoft .NET. He will speak about this new platform and the next generation Internet, how software developers and businesses will be able to take advantage of it, and what the .NET experience will look like for consumers and business users.
