This year I am really looking forward to some of the sessions because we have nice coverage of current technologies you can use and new stuff that is coming out around the corner. There are a few social event things that still need to be locked in and I am taking suggestions for what we do on Friday afternoon/evening, although we have the challenge this year of it not being a public holiday on Friday or Monday (just wasn’t possible this time – sorry!).

    I can’t help but wonder; how many of these people work for Readify? I think a majority % (in terms of working for one given company). I mean, nicely done if you’ve just accidentally hired all the “public” experts in the given fields, but I can’t help feel it’s slightly biased. Though I think it probably isn’t, it just speaks to who the “active” members are who attend this conference. I don’t know. Maybe the .NET community is really just tiny 🙂

    Hi Silky,

    That is a very valid comment. I must say that when I was putting together the schedule I was conscious of the impression that this would make. Only 17 people submitted sessions but some of those submitted multiples, and some didn’t actually send an abstract (just hinted that they could do a session at a stretch). I actually consider myself lucky that so many good people submitted abstracts.

    I did consider our LLBLGen session by the way but figured that you weren’t too keen on doing that (correct me if I am wrong).

    No you’re correct, I can’t really throw too many stones given that I have no interest in presenting myself.

    Sounds great this year, pity I won’t be able to make it.
    Last year was one of the better conferences I went to 🙂
