Day of .NET in Ann Arbor 2006 is Over!

The day has come and gone, and now I can resume normal programming (literally, and pun also intended).

Amazingly, we really had little to no hiccups! It went almost exactly as planned (to quote Dustin Campbell: "That's AWESOME!"). We heard from many attendees that the quality of the conference was on par with, if not exceeding, the quality of many conferences that you have to actually pay for (our event was absolutely free to the attendees). That does a lot to justify the amount of time that it took us to organize the day.

I think that one reason for the success was that Josh Holmes, John Hopkins, and myself (the primary organizers) have a lot of strong skills that compliment the abilities of the other two folks. That, when combined with the help of other event planners like Todd Bohlen, David Redding, Bill Wagner, and Darrell Hawley, led to a totally awsome event.

We'll definitely be having a spring event next year, and have already thought of a few things that can be done to make it even better.
