Attendees hard at work in the lab area...
So Tuesday concluded with a relaxing dinner and a drink with an old friend, and then back to the room to finish up email for the day/night. Wednesday began way too early with a trip over to the conference center early to finish up some labs before the keynote. I was very excited to see Malcom Gladwell speak, since I am a fan of his books. As usual, he dove in to the details of the real influences on everyday events like ballgames and the perceived home field advantage. Sadly, I had to break out early to head over for my final shift in the labs. There was definitely a brisk business when the labs opened, from attendees wanting to "fuel up" on knowledge before heading home. Popular topics this year-- Management Reporter, Workflow, Business Analyzer, and definitely SQL Reporting Services. I also saw a number of folks who were looking for labs on PowerPivot (which we had in the Office lab area).
Shift done. Goodbyes done. Off to lunch and airport. Now on flight home (dontcha love inflight internet).
Wishing everyone safe travels home today and tomorrow. It's been a great conference. See you next year in Houston.
