As part of the lead-up to this year’s TechEd in Sydney, I offered a prize to the person who could come the closest to guessing the final attendance number (without going over). I had a larger number of entries than I expected and the guesses ranged from 2612 at the low end up to 3273.

I know it’s been a while, but I’m now in a position to announce the winner. The final number was 2782, and the closest guess below that was 2777 from Justin King. So Justin, let’s catch up at next week’s Sydney .NET User Group and we can discuss your prize.
