Day two of the 2013 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference in Houston Texas has come to a close but not until the day's venue saw 14,000 plus attendees taking in over 130 sessions, and interactive discussions. It really is an experience you have to see to believe.

If there is any truth to the old adage “Time flies when you’re having fun,” then these last 3 days of the 2013 Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference would be the perfect case in point… as would the new idiom “Business happens at WPC.” We've had a chance to meet with partners from around the world and that's exactly what they’re saying.
Jon Roskill, Channel Chief, highlighted the daily WPC 2013 themes and announcements on his blog:
July 10: Partner opportunity, CityNext and big data tops WPC agenda today
July 9: Enterprise Social and Microsoft Partner Network cloud integration lead Day 2 of WPC
July 8: Greetings from the Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference
Julie Bennani, General Manager, Microsoft Partner Network talked about Partnering in a New World on her blog.
Laura K. Ipsen, Corporate Vice President, Worldwide Public Sector discussed Microsoft's new strategic initiative called CityNext.
