Loser goes to seminar

Yeah, real one. Not the scam one. I was at Microsoft SQL Server 2005 and Visual Studio 2005 launch tour yesterday, at Toronto Congress Center, with my boss. It was something! Learned a lot and fired up about rocking Dot Net.

I frequently visit Microsoft Seminars. Here are some things to note:
  • Free!
  • Free breakfast and lunch
  • Free Parking
  • Free software, a $2,000 value.
  • Free T-shirt, Key Chains, Microsoft stationary, bag, and lots of other stuff.
  • Learned actual technical stuff, not some lifestyle videos.
Long term benefits for Microsoft:
  • Developers will learn their software, which will increase current and future sales
  • CIOs more aware of ease and flexibility of Dot Net.
  • Exposure
As compared to Quixtar Seminars, what they get in long term?
  • Loyal IBOs, future critics, who will blog about them in not so far future.
  • Name of Diamonds showing up in blogs. In a not-so-positive light.
Try attending a real seminar, IBOs. They are more fun and easier than Quixtar ones. And you can see the benefits yourself.

You forgot to mention that out-of-town seminars can include a nice fancy meal that you wouldn't pay for yourself, charged to the company.

The one I attended in Ann Arbor last month had a happy hour after the first day too! Woot!
