So there I was, sitting in the front row of the Power to Developers event in Sydney Convention Center. A really great place by the way - it's like 5 minutes away from my home.
Steve Ballmer's presentation of Windows Azure is certainly very energetic. He did the "Developers, Developers, Developers" chant - I cheered!
Gianpaolo Carraro's presentation on Windows Azure services was interesting, it certainly got my hands all itchy. *Waiting for that SQL Data Services invite*
Tim Sneath's very excited about Windows 7, WPF and SilverLight. I bumped into him outside the convention center and asked him about his visit to Sydney, in hindsight what I really should have asked him was which of these cool technologies should I spend all my time on? How do I choose!
All the technical presentations were flaky, with the audience bursting out in laughter whenever Gianpaolo says "Oh Come On!"
I also got to meet heaps of people that I worked with over the last 3 years as well as some that were in SSW before that.
the SSW crew,
David Klein, Adrian, Marlon
Ciprien, Ben Scott, Christian Maslen, Gordon Salier
