Spending a Beautiful Spring Day in Canberra


I went to Canberra today, to host a CardSpace workshop with my colleague Nils.

I noticed a few things:

  • beautiful cherry blossoms, it felt like April in Japan
  • Canberrans are lovely people, laid back and friendly!
  • no traffic jams, 10 minutes scenic drive to the airport from city centre
  • Federal Government customers express genuine appreciation to me for meeting and talking with them about architecture and technology

I can’t believe this is the first time I’ve visited Canberra as a Microsoft employee, I must find excuses to go there more often.
