(I know it's a bit late, but I just now found some time to put this together. Thanks to Tom Geiger for the excellent photos.)
The Raleigh best-of-launch event for SQL Server 2005 and Visual Studio 2005 on November 8th was a smashing success!
Although we had lots of people and the lines were long, everyone checked in efficiently.
We even started a waitlist...but in the end no one was turned away. We accomodated over 400 people!
Many thanks to Rob Zelt, Greg Pugh, Chris Love, Joe Bennett and Mark Hutchinson of TRINUG for helping out as "Event Staff" in addition to manning their table at the event!
Here are some shots of John Baker and me presenting to the packed house.
And finally some shots of the Pub Club afterwards. In these you'll spot Jim Duffy, a Visual Basic MVP as well as Cindy Winegarden, a Foxpro MVP! Many thanks for their participation in this community event.
