DDD6 as it happens

By pcurd

Well – posting from the foyer of Microsoft’s Thames Valley HQ during DDD6.

The emphasis is most definately on scripting – but that was clear from the agenda. As always, SQL and databases in general are getting a lot of exposure but hidden in are gems like Ben Lamb’s excellent introduction to Microsoft Powershell.

Even burdened down by the black death, Ben gave an interesting, and most importantly, practical demonstration of the new .Net/administrative CLI.

Other highlights so far include Chris Hay and his well placed use of Monty Python demonstrating Silverlight 1.1 – I look forward to his next session building a twitter app!
