« ASP.NET Vulnerability Mitigation | Main | Dual Monitor setup without a second moni... »

I was fortunate enough to spend the last three days at the Patterns & Practices Summit which was held at the Microsoft Technology Center in Reston, VA. 

In a word, Awesome!

We had a great lineup of speakers such as:

On top of all of those there were also various keynotes, the most memorable of which was by Sandy Khaund on where the PAG is going.  I would also be remiss if I did not mention that the man who helped to coordinate this from the local side was none other than our own Developer Community Champion, Geoff Snowman. Excellent job all around.
Beyond the pure technical knowledge that was imparted, it was also a chance to connect in person with people who I had, in some cases, "met" only online. The other great thing was the ability to leverage their knowledge. Chris Kinsman helped me solve a configuration issue that I had been having with Log4Net and Jim Newkirk was a great source of information on some things I am currently looking at regarding Unit Testing, Daily Builds and more.  Tom Hollander as ever was patient in taking some of the "feedback" I have regarding some of the deployment scenarios for the Enterprise Library :-)
All in all, a great, great event and I have to give big kudos to both Sandy and Keith for putting this together!
