Launch 2005 v.Orlando & the Florida developer Community ROCKS!

Yesterday the Launch 2005 roadshow hit Florida, the Orlando edition. I headed down from Jacksonville to Orlando with some co-workers and other dev-friends in the JAX community. Other than missing the keynote (JAX is 2.5hrs away from Orlando, the event was held at the OCCC which is on the west side of the city, and we had rush hour traffic to deal with), it was a great event. Without doing a recap of the Orlando edition, which I’m sure was almost identical in content to the other Launch 2005 events, I wanted to mention that we have one kick-ass development community in Florida. All the usual suspects were present including MSFT FL Dev Evangelists Joe Healy & Russ Fustino, not to mention user group presidents from Orlando, Jacksonville, Tallahassee, and Tampa (south Florida was represented as well). Kudos on presentations by Stan Schultes (VSTS) and Tom Fuller (BizTalk, SQL)....
