Microsoft Sydney Launch Party (Part 1)

As you may know, because I'm currently visiting Sydney instead of being in Adelaide, I'm attending the Sydney events for the Visual Studio 2005 Launch.

This evening I went to the Microsoft offices in North Ryde for what turned out to be a drinks and pizza evening.

Not personally knowing anyone at an event is a bit strange when you are used to always knowing someone when you go somewhere in Adelaide. However I did get to meet and chat with Rob Caron, who's blog I happen to read regularly, so that was a nice highlight.

I also chatted with some nice Microsoft people, and got a few nice freebies (haven't tried on the T-shirt yet, normally XL is my preference).

Tomorrow the formal day-long launch is in at the Sydney Hilton in the city, so that should be interesting. I'll catch the train in, so a bit easier than having to drive across Sydney traffic.
