Secondly as I mentioned I probably wouldn't have been there if it wasn't for Scott, and as a result I attended talks on Microformats, Ruby on rails, and cardspace. This allowed the conference to reach a completely different audience, and that has to be a good thing.
Anyway back to the event! We were very well looked after, some good freebies and plenty of good grub (see the pic of the Microsoft sandwich. A little bit surprised they weren't called vista sarnies or wow sarnies, perhaps the only spot that Microsoft missed for advertising!)
I'll do a posting on each of the sessions I attended as soon as the slides are available (perhaps sooner).
Overall I'm going to rate the event 4 out of 5, would definitely attend the next one (if I can get tickets!)
