I enjoyed the opportunities to ask questions of the speakers and exhibitors. It was also nice to meet other developers from all over the world. I really liked having a mobile app to keep me on track with the sessions I planned to attend. -- Aaron Wergeland, Insperity
Lots of interesting solutions that were relative to the times, plus the working demos that showed non-trivial production type code were great! -- Novy Dhillon, Electronic Arts (Canada)
Microsoft Campus is beautiful and the conference rooms are well suited to the training. -- Louis McCoy, Merchants Automotive
