The first day of the ALM Summit 2010 was great. We've met a lot of talented leaders in the industry and many friendly people.  Approximately 200 folks made it here to the MS Redmond campus today. Our Hawaiian & Agilista shirts definitely stand out in the crowd. Many of the attendees are current Telerik users and its great to have a chance to promote our new products to them.

The atmosphere is relaxed with lots of dynamic conversations flowing. Attendees are mostly project or development leaders and are looking for help in dealing with their development headaches. TeamPulse is definitely on their radar to assist, especially now with the TFS sync!

Telerik is raffling off THREE digital photo frames (1 each day) as well as a 24" Samsung HD LED computer monitor with 1080P during the technical reception tomorrow night! To enter to win, attendees just need to drop off a business card in the lunch room (Rainier) where we are camping out during the breaks & sessions. Dave Harris from Telerik is here conducting TP demos & addressing ?s. We have plenty of swag to give out including stress building blocks, t-shirts and Agilista USB wristbands. Follow #telerik or #teleriker to find out who our winners are and #almsummit to hear personal reactions about the conference!

As for the sessions, sounds like everyone is enjoying them, especially Dave West's talk this morning. But as usual the conversations in the hallways seem to provide the most value to attendees.

I must give credit to Tanya Young and Keith Pleas as the event (AFAIK) has gone off like a hitch and the food happens to be delicious. Here's a quick photo of lunch.

We are signing off now for the social reception - I'll return tomorrow with another recap before our Parlor Billiards party!

Stay classy Seattle.
