New York Launch of Office 2010 and SharePoint

On May 13th 2010 Microsoft launched the Office 2010 through its "Launch 2010 Technical Readiness Series" in Brooklyn at the Marriott. The event was attended by a large gathering of both IT Track and Developer Track enthusiasts.

It was a 7:30 A.M to 5:00 PM event complete with lectures and vendor exhibits. There were a number of interesting talks delivered by Microsoft Evangelists and MVPs.

These were some I attended and paid attention to:

Windows Development with VS 2010
Web and Cloud Development with VS 2010

Actually the cloud part was small.

The vendors that I talked to were among the following:

Windows Phone
SolarTech [Microsoft Training Provider]
Open Text
Sogeti [Global reach with a Local Touch] --There was also a vendor presentation
Computer Generated Solutions Inc
eMazzenti [Computer Network Solutions-setup, support and management]
K2 [SharePoint Workflow and Process driven apps]
Newsgator [SocialSites for SharePoint 2010]
Nuance [Speech and Imaging Solutions]
MS Dynamic[Business Productivity Infrastructure]
Windows 7

Some of them were consulting or training companies; some were adding value to SharePoint and some talking about what is coming.
