Rob Howard presented to a group of almost 170 from the Philadelphia area, and it was awesome. There was great excitement about ASP.NET 2.0, and Rob did a fantastic job driving that excitement with his demos. SEI hosted for the event, and their beautiful site - and free parking - worked well for us all. Bill Wolff, the leader of the PhillyDotNet User Group (, coordinated the event and did a great job with the introductions and giveaways as well.
