.NETWizards VS 2005 Lauch event was a blast. It was a gr8 success. I being a UG Leader was expecting somewhere btw. 50-75 participants. But believe it or not we got more than 200 registrations and some 100 attendees and there were few more that got returned since the place was full. I was accompanied by two other new speakers, Naveed Bajwa (Technical Lead, KalSoft) and Naseem Siddiqui (Software Architect, KalSoft). Event went great. We distribute many PDC 2005 bags (Thanks for Microsoft), 3 Original VS Launch DVD Bundles including free exam vouchers, and one MS Press Book. We were also able to offer soda + subway sanwich roles to the participants, thanks to INETA Pakistan :).
During past week i have recieved many many emails appreciating the event and requests for more such activities. I would like to convey my thanks to Munir Usman, FAST.NET UG Leader and his team (specially Ali). I am also thankful to NED.NET UG Leader (Zeeshan Muhammad) for helping out in sorting things out at the venue and Sarfaraz Soomoro for every thing he did. I thank you all .NETWizards for making this event such a success. I am hoping we will keep on holding such offline activities whenever possible and will .NET Rocking!
