Microsoft Pakistan Touchdown Program for VS 2005/SQL Server 2005

These days I am conducting trainings as a part of "Microsoft Touchdown " for VS 2005 (Whidbey) and SQL Server 2005 (Yukon) Launch program. These trainings are being conducted by Microsoft Pakistan at a training fascility provided by Kalsoft's KalAcademy. Participants have been invited from Microsoft ISV partners. I am conducting these sessions on the behalf of Kalsoft which happens to be employer and Microsoft's Gold Certified Partner.

Yesterday I conducted two sessions. One on SQL Server 2005's Web Service Support and second one on SQL Server 2005's Service Broker Architecture.
As this is a month of Ramadhan, it was very difficult to speak for whole day while fasting and that on as sunny and hot day as it was yesterday. I believe sessions went well as I gave hands on demo on web service development and client accessibility and i believe audience liked it pretty much. The best part was that amongst participants/attendees were a couple of my friends, a relative and an old time trusted comrade and MVP Adnan Farooq. I have got more sessions comming up for next week.

This all buildup is going to help me and INETA a lot in prepapring for VS/SQL Server 2005 Launch.
