Another great year at DevWeek 2010 – can’t believe the show is already coming to a close. DevWeek is always a great event, organized by Nick Payne and team of Bearpark Publishing. Pluralsight had quite the gang out this year including Fritz Onion, Keith Brown, Jon Fancey, Ian Griffiths, Scott Deadrick, Meagon Marshall, and of course me.

Our technical team delivered a long list of breakout sessions on pre/post-conference workshops, which you can read about on Meagon’s blog. I personally did a workshop plus 6 breakout sessions on primarily Azure, Cloud Computing, and REST. I really enjoyed my sessions this year, mostly because the attendees were so engaged and full of questions, especially the ones on REST yesterday. My favorite talk this year was the one on REST + XHTML + MVC.

Demos: for those of you who attended my sessions, you can download my DevWeek 2010 demos.

On Monday night Nick hosted a speaker’s dinner at a very peculiar and popular London restaurant known for their unique and creative fare (can’t remember the name). Check out the starter bone marrow on toast and look at Jeff Richter ready to dig into his main course. 😉

It was a very unique and entertaining experience to say the least – thanks Nick!  We also enjoyed the London fare you might expect (Indian and Thai) over some very nice Pluralsight dinners.

We received a lot of great feedback during the event from attendees all over the UK using Pluralsight On-Demand! Every DevWeek attendee received a free 1-week pass to Pluralsight On-Demand! (look for the white plastic card in your attendee bag) and those who attended my Azure precon received another special gift – you know what to do – make sure you email Meagon if you didn’t catch her at the event.

Our secret? Check out Fritz here playing the siren song of Pluralsight On-Demand! on classical guitar once you hear the tunes, you just can’t help yourself, so beware.
