Staying in LA is an interesting experience. Everything from beautiful women to palm trees! I stayed in West Hollywood on Sunset Drive – The Hyatt. Great view of the city, close to great restaurants and a 30 minutes drive to the convention center. The highlight of the event was the Napoleon Dynamite spoof.
PDC Day 1
Registration – not much happened here…caught up with some people I knew from Canada and the US. Hung out at the Office SharePoint lounge.
PDC Day 2
Attended the Gates key note, the highlight of the presentation was the recruiting video and the 10k view of the product path for the next two years. The vote for Stevo shirt and bunny shoes were a great visual!
PDC Day 3
Vista, Workflow, SharePoint V3 and Office 12 – new UI, SharePoint is finnally enterprise ready. Checked out the vender show, had some Coronas and went to Universal Studios.
PDC Day 4
SharePoint, Windows 2003 R2, Longhorn – better intergration, componentized OS, Computing clusters, more features…did I say more features?
A fun week in LA!
