Wow - what a day. It started with discovering that the turnout was well past my expectations. Mike Lehman (the technical evangelist for compilers at Microsoft, and the event coordinator) told me that we hit the limit and had to turn people away. I'm glad I arrived early go get some good parking and a good seat.
The material I'm posting now is probably of limited interest to a LabVIEW developer, but I find it very interesting computer science information. Feel free to browse and comment.
