Hey Folks, It was a great event hosted by Microsoft @Bangalore.
A great welcome note was addressed by Somasegar, Senior VP, Microsoft about the 3 products.
He spoke about Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008 and further there were some good demos by each of the product specialist.

Got to know about:
- Virtualization
- Security Aspects
- SQL 2008 Spatial/geography datatype
- Performance
- Resource Governor
- Business Intelligence

- Silverlight
- JavaScript Intellisense and Debugging
- Microsoft Expression Blend... and much more

Also, prizes were distributed to contest winners. These lucky winners got a voucher for laptop and out of those 10 winners 3 of them got the chance to go to the Tech-Ed 2008 @ Orlando.

Also, all the attendes were lucky to get a 1 GB pen drive + evaluation copies of Windows Server 2008, VS 2008 Team Suite.

And finally, they screened "Transformers". Kudos to Microsoft and keep it up! A very well-arranged event.
