Microsoft Event 16th Feb 2011

Did anyone else manage to get a ticket to the Microsoft event on Thursday in Zurich? If so fancy meeting up at the lunch after the talks are over?

Re: Microsoft Event 16th Feb 2011

They had some 800 people asking for tickets on the first week (day) of being available, so it became a lottery - all tickets gone.
