Day 1 – VSLive kicked off with the .net focus day, which was an all day only .net. We got here on Sunday and setup our booth since we are exhibiting at this conference. I also setup the machine with all the demo's on it. There are about 1100+ attendees here and it sure is going to be a busy conference. We handed out about 300 cd's today and I expect we should be handing out atleast another 500 more…….thats exciting!

I did get a chance to sit through the keynote which was pretty interesting it was given by Sam Guckenheimer from Microsoft and he was talking about Visual Studio Next (Orcas) and had some pretty interesing things to talk about. The other session that I was able to sit in was LINQ which I was very excited to go to but rather dissapointed in the conetent of the presentation which was given by Jason McConnell from Microsoft. To his credit he is from marketing and probably should not have been speaking to a developer heavy audience.
