An all-encompassing "Bidi support on Windows" presentation for MS internal type folk

The title says it all.

Because Windows supports Hebrew, Arabic, Persian, Urdu, Pashto, Dari, Uyghur, Syriac, and lots of other languages/locales that support bidirectional text, and all of them have to work well!

And so, to that end...

...on Wednesday, July 28th, 2010 at 10:00am in 86/2831, I'll be doing a huge presentation on support bidirectional script languages on Windows.

So if you

this training should be of real interest to you!

The presentation will cover UI mirroring, digit substitution, date and calendar formatting, text rendering, and all of kinds of additional issues when you combine these various scenarios.

If you are not MS internal, don't fret too much; lots of it can eventually end up here in the blog as well.

But this is a case where being inside the tent has its advantages, because of all of the things I can say and punches I don't have to pull (if you think I am outrageous here you should see me without those "NDA" filters!).

If you are internal but cannot attend for geographical or scheduling reasons, the slides will be available and the presentation itself will be recorded....

‮Bidi support on Windows is actually quite flexible.‬

I actually do that with some of my slides....

Arghh! May I become a MS insider for, say, 10 minutes, the time to download the recording? ;-)

You mean get a job working for Microsoft by tomorrow? ;-)
