So far it’s a great conference. My pre-conference workshop on installing and deploying MOSS was taught by Ben Curry of Mindsharp was terrific. I already knew a lot of the fundamentals; what was golden was “Ben’s Best Practices” on things like load balancing, search intricacies, and any number of “gotchas” in MOSS.
I also got to finally meet real people at Telerik and JetBrains and thank them for their support of the .NET community. I also met up with a couple old friends like Joe Brinkman, Dustin Campbell, and a few others. (Sorry if I left you off the list!)
Now it’s off to sit in on more content. I’m also looking forward to trying to finally meet Phil Haack, except I think he’s avoiding me. Go figure. I thought we were past that whole restraining order thing.
