Microsoft Technology Summit 2008 (8th and 9th November), the biggest Microsoft technology event in Poland went quite well. It was my first MTS and I was trying not to expect anything special. And indeed I haven’t experienced anything earth shaking but altogether it was quite interesting and a good investment of time. I surely learned a few new things and meet interesting people there. I was astonished by the sheer number of attendees that gathered in there. I presume the old communist “castle” in the center of Warsaw the “Palace of Culture and Science” was the only place to accommodate this whole crowd, but it is not a cushy place. It’s big and cold and far from perfect to host a technology event like that. And well… despite the overwhelming size of this place, you almost have to eat you lunch on the floor, because there was no enough tables 😉
But I passed the 70-543 Exam there and gained the Microsoft Certified Professional Developer in ASP.NET title. So altogether it was a full success!
