MSDN Launch Event

I am blogging from Khorshed Mahal, Avari Towers, Lahore from the MSDN and TechNet Launch event. Here are a few photographs of the event. I am manning the INETA Pakistan booth right now. The Wireless LAN is not working well, keeps disconnecting, so I'll blog in more detail later.
Last night, Vaqar Khamisani called me to shock me with the news that the speakers coming in from abroad, their flights had been delayed and I should prepare an emergency presentation, which was no big deal. I was ready, but the speakers eventually did manage to fly in, so I only had to sit back and man the INETA booth.
Jawad Rehman, Country Manager, Microsoft Pakistan is barely visible in this photograph, but you can see how crowded the hall is. They had to put extra chairs in.

Here's a photo of two of the speakers, Asseel and Chad.

I took off at 11:15 am because of class.

I found that the launch event has this website: However, no presentations are available there. You can contact Aseel Mansour or Chad Hower if you can find their email addresses courtesy of google, for the content of his slide presentations. I didnt take down their email addresses and was unable to join them in the afternoon so I wasnt able to informally meet with them.
