Goodbye to Devcon

Well Devcon is almost over - it's the last day of the conference, and not much is happening. I was able to review my speaker stats for the two labs and the session I gave - not bad, all around a 7 of out of 9 rating. The docs for these labs and sessions will be available at some point in the future - as soon as I know where they are, I'll let everyone know.

All in all, it was a good show. I was pleased that my labs and sessions went well. I was even more pleased when I winged in an addition to the SP2 lab, adding a Bluetooth demo to the lab on the fly - it worked flawlessly. I like Bluetooth, and will be buying myself some Bluetooth HID devices in the near future (soon as I can find a BT Natural keyboard).

I was able to attend a couple of other labs and sessions as well - Joe Morris' lab on patch management went over well, and Sean Liming's labs drew big crowds and delivered. We went to dinner last night and by the time we got back to the hotel, the big Beach Bash party was already over (well, not over, but they were closing the bar, so it was coughing up blood). We headed back to the Gaslight district and hit a dance bar, but I called it an early night - I'm way too old to be dancing like that. I'll try to post some pics of the conference and San Diego over the weekend - got some pics of the MS crew here, as well as some of our MVP's (Mr. Vorchak looks a lot scarier in person than he does in the pictures...)
