How great was the LA Launch kickoff event on Wednesday? It seemed to be a good time for those that got in. The sold out event began with Steve Ballmer's keynote at the Nokia Theater and continued through the day at the Los Angeles Convention Center.

Most exciting for myself and the ADO.NET team, my Getting Started with the Entity Framework chalk talk saw more than a full room as people crowded the entrance to listen in.
