It is great when my worlds collide. As many of you know I am an Architect Evangelist with Microsoft. I also run the New York City chapter of the International Association of Software Architect (IASA).
On October 12-14, 2009 we held our IT Architect Regional Conference in New York. This was billed as the Thought Leaders Edition because of all the industry Architecture thought leaders presenting there.
Here is a montage of screen shots from the event.
