TechEd - The First Coupla Days

by admin 4. August 2004 22:57

So, TechEd is well underway. Joel Pobar has turned up after visiting New Zealand TechEd. It's good to catch up. Even though he denies it, Joel has quite the profile in Australia now. Sounds like he's doing some really cool stuff over in Redmond with the CLR team so I'm looking forward to his sessions this arvo. It seems like a long time since Joel was working with me on the G2 project at QUT. Hopefully I'll move on sometime soon as well (after getting my PhD).

Also been meeting a lot of people I know from online - in particular AusDotNet members. In particular Frank Arrigo, Peter Stanski and Nick Weinholt who has written an article on our Imagine Cup entry for Australian Developer next month plus heaps more.

Went to the Geek Dinner pub crawl... well at least the first stop of it... last night. That was fun, though I'm still recovering from the flu I copped over the weekend. Most importantly though, I finally met up with Bernard Oh and the MS Student Ambassadors. Bernard is very active on AusDotNet so our research centre feels like we all know him, even before meeting him. Thanks for the wave Bernard!

Anyway. I'm standing on the MSDN stand showing off the TV Prognosticator so come on round for a demo of a real life Smart Client!
