*** THIS EVENT IS CURRENTLY GOING ON WORLD WIDE even as we speak! ***
The wrap up of the day:
Saturday morning was nothing short of sensational in Sydney today, early morning sun,
bright blue skies, smell of coffee and a city that felt like it was snoozing and waking
for some playtime.
I walked into a room of curious minds, eager eyes and folks that were thinking of
possibilities in technology. This technology was Windows Azure.
We were above capacity & for the first time I would be relieved if there were
a few ‘no-shows’…but none happened. Even at 5pm we nearly had a full house.
Firstly I’ve got to thank – you the students for a great day, fantastic questions
and giving your precious weekend time.
Secondly the expert speakers that have huge experience in the field.
and finally all the sponsors & people that helped enable us to
bring this to you:
What were the plans for the day:
The Agenda was set to:
Some Interesting facts:
- we had 3 MVPs in the room (that I knew of)
- we had 2 Microsoft VTSPs
- a student drove 3.5hrs one way to be here with us during the day, then back to Canberra
again after class. Massive commitment.
- we all came with Azure Subscriptions ready to go.
- a student created a WebSite, Database + Worker role working in a solution together
during the day.
- Olaf has his Mobile Services demo fail (even though it worked at 10pm last night)
due to the recent Azure Portal update at 2am this morning. He did have a PlanB, the
autogenerated code from the Portal during the Mobile Services Application creation,
generates un-compilable code for now. Well done Olaf, some nice tap dancing.
