My left arm to bethere. Briliant speaker, brilliant topic. Green with envy b/c I can’t make it.

Hey Bill,

It went relatively well…the presentation was smooth except for the fact that my .Net install screwed up and i started getting errors all over the place for my demos.

a bit dissapointing as i wanted to show how easy it is to implement WCF..guess this proved the opposite.

It was an excellent presentation and I learned quite a lot.

The conversations on security services were particularly interesting.

Demo woulda been cool, but the rest of the presentation was solid it didn’t really matter, the code examples were small and very easy to follow.

hopefully the guys at the UG will invite me back again in the new year – plenty of new stuff out there to present on these days.
