CodeStock 2009 Aftermath

If you did not attend CodeStock 2009 , then you really missed out.  It was one of the best conferences I have ever been to.  I've been to a lot, so that means something.  I've learned more, I've recieved more swag, ate better but never came back so energized. I met so many people that I will now probably follow for a very long time.  There are people that I have met at L.A., NYC, Chicago that were probably more popular, but I don't remember who they are.  I'll remember the people I met in Knoxville at CodeStock . The knowledge I gained was not just what cool stuff is coming down from Microsoft this year, but I fixed problems and made decisions.  Alan Stevens orchestrated an Open Spaces portion of CodeStock that went far above what I had hoped.  I had to leave early on Friday but Saturday was all about getting stuff done.  I also had a lot of fun with the family and at the after parties.  If you are thinking about going next year.  Check out these photo albums.  You
