Windows Azure Brisbane Meetup Wrapped Up

Windows Azure Brisbane Meetup Wrapped Up

Our first 2012 reader meetup thanks to Windows Azure took place in Brisbane last night, and it was a roaring success. Check out our photo gallery of the evening with all the news and all the winners.Image

A packed house enjoyed beer, food, lots of socialising and a great presentation on the potential of Azure by Dean Robertson from Mexia. In the individual challenge round (based on Dean’s presentation), the ultimate victory — and a prize of Microsoft Visual Studio Professional with MSDN Essentials, valued of $810 — went to Dan Sowter. Congratulations Dan!

The main team trivia challenge featured questions which started out seemingly easy but rapidly got more difficult. It was a close-run contest, but a team with the name of A Very Witty Pun proved victorious on the night.

Another feature of each event will be a caption competition. We got lots of great suggestions as a caption for the picture below of Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer, but we couldn’t go past the featured suggestion from Bryden:

Ooh baby, Kinect has come a long way!

Thanks to everyone who came along and made the night such a success (and to Microsoft for making it possible). We can’t wait to see readers at our Sydney meetup this evening. Developers in Perth and Melbourne — if you haven’t already signed up, what are you waiting for?
