It’s now 2:25 AM here in Seattle, and I’m of course Jet Lagged with a head cold. I figured what a perfect time to update my blog with a big thank you to all who turned out to see me in my Australia wide tour.
I met a whole bunch of you folks from all walks of life, and i am really impressed with the level of skill set housed within a large piece of land at the bottom of the earth.
It was a lot of travel, but fun and the feedback I got on how we are tracking and things we should focus on has been an enormous help to the Silverlight Team and Myself.
I sadly couldn’t make Canberra due to a need to cut my time in Australia short, but I will make it up to Canberra on my next visit back home – i swear to thee ACT dwellers.
I will be uploading my Silverlight / Expression 3 Presentation sometime next week (I did my presentation in 100% Silverlight, now that’s bleeding blue!). Some folks I would like to thank for helping me organize the meetings and went above the call of duty.
Also big thanks to Microsoft Australia guys, Andrew Coates, Dave Glover and Shane Morris for their support locally. It was fun catching up with my old team mates again and its good to see they still have strong blue passion within them.
I have a lot of feedback to give to our teams here, and again, your feedback is always welcomed either email me (scbarnes / microsoft) or if you ever feel the need to send love/hate mail to the team, you can always do so via twitter - @TeamSilverlight
Thanks heaps Australia Silverlight and I look forward to my next visit.
