Thanks to everyone who attended the WCF Firestarter event in New York City on June 19, 2010! I had a great time helping organize the event and speaking with many of the attendees about the Windows Communication Foundation. There were over 200 folks who made it out to the Fire Starter in NYC that day, as well as an almost equal number that tuned in via our live simulcast! Special thanks goes out to the event’s speakers Miguel Castro and Don Demsak for assembling and delivering most of the day’s content!
The recordings and content from the event are now available!
