It’s been an overwhelming few days listening and interacting with bright people from the .NET community and within Microsoft itself (wish I could say more but I can’t). Here are just a few of those names, I wish I knew them all but I was so busy listening to what they had to say I often forgot to ask for a card:
- Jonathan Carter
- Kevin Huffman
- Aaron Jensen
- Dimitar Kapitanov
- James Kovaks
- Julia Lerman
- Jeffrey Palmero
- Vassil Terziev
And from the Microsoft side of the fence
Congratulations go out to Rob Conery who is now getting paid by Microsoft to work on SubSonic!
How cool is that!
I’ve been invited out to Microsoft HQ for a couple of days (October 22-23) which should be very interesting – more details on the what, why and how at a later date.
I will also be spending an extra day and a half in Seattle, perhaps taking in some of the sights of and maybe meeting up with a couple of on-line contacts for the first time.
Flights & hotel booked, now where I did put my passport…
The event was a Software Design Review for Microsoft’s ASP.NET 3.5 Extensions including MVC. Twenty-four of us gave our thoughts, feelings and opinions to the teams on how we believe we would or could utilise various aspects.
