THAT WAS AWESOME!!! We had some killer apps show up to this and I just wanted to say thanks to everyone who showed attended any of our classes. I am very pleased at how well everyone performed. We had some rough patches, but I’d say this class was a huge success! I’d love to hear what you thought about it! What can we do to improve it?

Special Thanks

First a huge thanks to Kim Schmidt who, despite many struggles during the course of this class, has been an outstanding support. She secured our location and really got this class up and running. So again, a huge thanks to her! Also, vNext_OC has been critical in this event. We want to thank all those who have helped organize the user group and keep it running! Great job! We want to give a special thanks to our hosts Saddleback College. They were tremendous hosts and helped us a ton! And a huge thanks to Microsoft for sponsoring dinner each night. It was delicious! Of course we wouldn’t be anywhere with out our prizes so another giant thanks to Microsoft and Nokia DVLUP who sponsored all of the cool prizes and giveaways! Kevin and I have feel honored and privileged to have worked with such amazing sponsors, leaders, and attendees! Thank you everyone for your participation!
