The Ready to Rock Launch

Wow ! what a wonderful event it was. It would have been the best IT event to be held in SL and no surprises it was Microsoft (they do anything big, but of course with errors). I was lucky to be among one of the 1200 who got the invitations, not one of the 600 who didn't.
The way they have built the concept was fabulous, with blend of oriental, rock and gothic cultures together. The startup was scintillating and it was not so techincal as usual. Knights, monks, and village folks created a Lord of the Rings kinda atmosphere. The music arrangement was also too great with the mix of Rock and oriental percussion.
That was not all, the sessions done by the top Microsoft gurus of the region such as Praveen, Ed and others were also much interactive with live demos. And the fully-fledged features of the new SQL Server 2005 (great it's now got XML bulit-in) and  Visual Studio Team Suite (Managebilty of a whole project with one suite, one IDE among differnet roles in a team)
Also the added capabilities to 2.0 is really cuts half of the job of developers. Master Pages, Memberships and Code Snippets makes the hard daily routines easier.
