Earlier today I did an Angelbeat IT Event in Building 33 on the Microsoft Campus in Redmond, Wa. There was a great turn out with ~70 people in attendance. Lots of vendors showed up including Cisco, Intel, Right Systems, Incentra, and others. These are great events for IT staff to hear directly from the companies about new technologies and even current stuff they just might not be aware of.
I saw few familiar faces from the WNUG User Group I host with Zubair Alexander and I met a bunch of new people as well. It was great to be out in public and hear what people have to say about technology. It is also my favorite way to get feedback from customers in the field.
Tomorrow I will be in Portland, OR doing the same presentation at an Angelbeat event there. If you happen to be in the area, swing by get some great information and say Hi!
