I attended the IMTC on Thursday and Friday and here some of my highlights.
I met lots of speakers and MVPs. Some have promised to come and talk in Cork next year.
Ben Sykes gave a great talk on what makes people tick and how we need to be aware of this when designing web sites or any type of user interface. Ben is a great guy and is shortly moving to Galway from Seattle to work for Cisco.
Dave McMahon gave an informative and entertains talk on SQL and opened my eyes to a few new techniques. He certainly pushed www.DDDireland.com on 3rd June!!
Office Communication Server is not really suitable for the small business market as it need lots of servers and there are no VOIP gateways for outgoing calls.
Lots of interest in LINQ but nobody seems to have used in anger yet.
