Attendees were treated to a full day content and hands-on labs covering topics such as virtual machines, cloud services, Windows Azure Websites, DevOps, and mobile services.  One of the labs even contributed to a global effort on diabetes research! Through the support of multiple global sponsors, a number of lucky attendees won licenses to software and services from Cerebrata, JetBrains, myGet, and numerous others.
