Back serving the dev community

On January 8th, 2013, I had the pleasure to organize and speak at the Windows 8 Dev Unleashed. The event took place at the University of Kentucky and had 60 registered attendees, mostly actually attended.
It was an intense and fun day, throughout which we cover every new aspect of developing “Windows Store” applications for Windows 8. There were lots of interesting discussions and I learned a lot during the process.

Thanks for everyone who attended and for the Facilities Management department of the university, that helped me pull this one off. They provided amazing help in the promotion and infrastructure. In addition to making a few “pro” and “RT” devices available for people to play with, they actually installed Windows 8 on several old touch-enabled laptops for attendees to use throughout the day, if they didn’t have their own machine ready.

I am looking forward to resuming serving the development community here in Lexington, KY, as I used to back in California.
