...it would really come in handy in Spain afterall! Yes I'm going to flying to Spain next Sunday to do my part for the team and present FSX at a LanParty in Madrid, then head on to Valencia for another presentation.
I should be interesting and I've heard that Spain is very beautiful, especially Valencia. I won't be there very long though as I'll head back to Seattle the following Thursday (just as the jet lag is wearing off). I still have a lot of bugs to fix and tweaking and tuning to do!
At least I will have some time on the plane to work on future design stuff :)
I'll post more about the trip when I know more.
Why don't you make an recon flight around Valencia with FSX?
I've been there a couple of times and it's pretty nice around that area.
Hope you get some time to take a scenic tour.
Paul, can you let me know the events you are visiting? One of them may have our Spanish Chief Editor present, who also happens to be the organizer of one of Spain's largest airshows....
Paul, I´ve been living in Madrid for 8 years and we have a lot of things to see here, maybe it´s not the most beatiful city in Spain but you can find very interesting places, museums, a multicultural society, etc. By the way, we are suffering a very hot summer, I don´t know how the summer in Seattle is, but people are having a thought time here. Of course, Valencia is great too, with a wonderful coastline and an awesome new aquarium and museum of science.
And, I would be very happy if you could inform us about that LAN party at Madrid, I´ve searched but found no info about it, is it a press-only event maybe?
Francois, the Valencia event is CampusParty, a HUGE LanParty which is slowly becoming a Gaming Fair with a lot of seminars and so. You can fin d info here:
To be honest, I don't have much information on the events. I think the event in Madrid is press only and similar to what we just did for the press in Redmond but on a smaller scale. Maybe it was put together after MS confirmed one of us could make the trip.
Jorge you are right that the even in Valencia is this CampusParty. Thanks for the link!
