 What did you think?

We’ve received almost 700 of your event evaluations, which have proved to be incredibly valuable in preparation for the next TechDays!

We were able to find out what went well, what went brilliantly and what we can look to improve for next time!

We asked, what was your Tech.Days highlight? Here’s a few stand out responses:

“The various demo's provided and expert opinions along with additional chat support to ensure questions are answered.”

“This was the first time I’ve participated and I found it very useful, I’ll definitely participate again. I’ve also been on Microsoft course's, passed MCP's and found this event so useful that I am intending on passing and attending more. I’m also building a test bed at home :).”

“I thought the Xbox Onesie was the funniest part of the event. In terms of useful information I liked the practical demonstrations over the more generic descriptions/overviews. I was most interested in the Visual Studio sessions.”

“Andrew Fryer (Deepfat)'s Anchoring....”
