I spent a good portion of my day at TechReady as a proctor for the hands-on labs. I met a few people who were going through the "XML Capabilities" tutorial. Unfortunately my duties in the lab prevented me from attending our PM's talk on XML. On the bright side I got a chance to run the "Service Broker" lab exercises. I must admit that until today I only knew the basics but now that I've actually played with this feature I'm really excited about it.
All in all it was a good day and a great opportunity to take a look at the bigger picture.
