A really good day - great to see lots of people turning up.

David Gardiner

  • I did my LINQ for SQL talk. I think it went ok.

  • Very interesting talk - I think I have a better understanding of this now, and can see how we might make use of this in our development processes.

Dave Glover

  • Silverlight
  • First time I've seen demos of PopFly - really nitfy.

Jey Srikantha
