Here are some evidence that geeks can party too (well, me not really, but definitely many of my esteemed teammates)! The Underground @ PDC was an event hosted by Microsoft at the Professional Developers Conference 2008. Check out the pictures on Flickr, tweets, and animoto (or play below).
But it wasn’t just a great party; we had presentations from Scott Guthrie, Don Box, Douglas Purdy, Chris Anderson, Scott Hanselman, Loke Uei Tan, etc. More information about these presentations, as well as videos, can be found on TechZulu.
Personally for me, it was a great sigh of relief after delivering one of the demo’s during Bob Muglia’s keynote presentation during day 1 of PDC (the RedPrairie demo using Azure Services Platform). Finally got to re-surface after months of non-stop work. I now have a real appreciation of the thought and effort that goes into these demo presentations we see.
Doing a TechZulu interview with pal Geoffrey Emery (interesting venue no?).
Enjoying a moment with our fabulous Lynn Langit (no, the cigars weren’t lit).
Looking forward to PDC2009! It’s going to be back in Los Angeles again, scheduled for November 17-20, 2009. Hope to see you there!
