Although I wasn’t able to be in Vermont on Thursday for the Bob & Chris Roadshow or the VS2008 Installfest, I have gotten emails from Chris Bowen and others letting me know that it was a great success. Over 40 people showed up for the installfest, and I learned from Dave Burke’s blog that they also had TWO XB0X 360’s set up for folks to play with.
Sorry to have missed it.
What I really enjoyed reading was Dave Burke’s epiphany about VS2008. The sessions from Bob & Chris really made things click for him and he’s ready to get in bed wiht VS2008. I was thinking about that becasue he said he’s seen LINQ 4 times before, but not until Thursday did he finally get to his AHA! moment with it. I believe this may have a lot to do with the fact that it’s finished, it’s deployed and in hand, rather than seeing very early bits (we’ve had 3 LINQ talks at VTdotNET in the last 1 1/2 years).
