Dinner with Brad Abrams

Last night I attended an event that Chris Koenig organized for all of the speakers at the 1st annual Houston TechFest.  We met up at the Armadillo Palace (Goode Company’s bar) to meet and exchange thoughts and ideas about the conference.  It was great to meet Brad, who was been a key contibuter to the success of the .NET framework in his 10+ years with Microsoft.

It was great to be able to meet the other speakers, as the event itself doesn’t really facilitate this kind of interaction since everyone is speaking and/or preparing.  Kudos to Chris and those who helped him in organizing this event.  I hope this tradition continues in future years of the TechFest.
