The 2009 St. Louis Day of .NET (with an extra bonus day thrown in for good measure) kicked off with a bang this past Friday morning when over 500 geeks gathered at the Ameristar Casino & Resort to participate in the largest community driven developer event ever to hit St. Louis. Over the two days, attendees were treated to more than 65 high impact sessions discussing the latest .NET technologies and best practices, all delivered by world class MVPs, book authors, and technologists from throughout the region. Facilities were first class, sessions were awesome, tweets were flying, and networking and knowledge sharing were overflowing into the hallways and lounges.
This year’s event literally doubled in size from last year - two full days, twice the sessions, twice the speakers, and twice the attendees. Feedback we’re hearing is incredibly positive and I’ve been assured that plans are already under way to make it even bigger and better next year.
I want to personally thank the organizers for the tremendous effort they put into this event.
It was a 100% volunteer effort and each and everyone of them delivered 200%. Rock on!
Also a big thank you to everyone who spoke and attended. You made this event the huge success that it was.
You can see more great pictures from the event in the St. Louis Day of .NET flickr pool.
