    I enjoyed hearing Paul. I found him to be prepared and thought his insights were valuable. Had a chance to ask any Microsoft questions we wanted. Glad to here 8.1 and further windows 8 and phone versions should be successful. Great to see dozens of people stay until 9 and network and get information from other group members. And as always your feedback is welcome and helps the group.

    As always Paul was entertaining. I highly recommend watching his show, Windows Weekly. It's a live broadcast every Thursday. http://twit.tv/ww­ If you didn't get a chance to come grab my card and wanted to receive Nokia developer support (phones, license, etc), send me an email and I will bring you on board http://nokiawpdev.wordpress.com...­

    meeting format changed and started earlier than 6:30. Main Speaker was unprepared. We need better audio for the big meetings.

      That full room only works by using mics and speakers. When it's broken into thirds, the acoustics are much easier.
