Unfortunately, this is the day that Murphy caught up with me, in the form of a migraine. When these hit, the only thing I can do is try to sleep it off.
I ended up not hitting the conference center until a bit after noon, just in time to brave lunch. What would a Microsoft conference be without the dreaded salmon meal? At that point, my stomach rebelled and my head agreed, so I wandered back to the MVP area and chatted until it was time to head upstairs to my room for my last session at 1pm.
Big thanks to everyone who showed up for the session. I took some of the feedback from Day 2, and combined with my increased mellowness from the migraine, I made some changes to the structure of the session and clarifications to the message I wanted the attendees to walk away with. We had what I thought was a brilliant session. Apparently, I do my best work while in pain.
After that, it was down to the expo floor for a quick round of good-byes, then off to catch my shuttle to Orlando International Airport. I was able to get checked in with more than enough time for a leisurely meal, then on to gate 10 where I met up with various other MEC attendees on their way back home to Seattle.
WHAT AN AMAZING CONFERENCE. I had SO much fun, even with missing essentially all of Day 3 and the wonderful sessions that I’d planned to sit into. My apologies for the missed Twitter stream that day.
We’ll have to do this again next year. I hope you’ll be there!
