MC Press Online talks with more than 20 vendors to find out what the latest technology announcements are coming from the COMMON expo floor.

COMMON this year was held in the happiest place on earth—Disneyland. It's a great place to vacation, and I hope many of those attending the conference and expo took advantage of the entertainment and vacation opportunities either before or after the show. Living only about 35 minutes from Disneyland, I of course haven't set foot in the place in 20 years. A lot has changed in that time, it turns out, and it is way more fun than it used to be. It's also way more expensive, but so is everything.
Whether you're trying to get certified or you just need a great reference book, this is the book for you.
