Beirut, Lebanon Launch - Nov 7, 2005
I'm sorry that many of these posts are coming late and even in batches, but not all the airlines have internet access on board and often even if they did the time in the sky is often needed for sleep.
On November 7th I participated in the product launch in Beirut. We had over 700 attendees and I met with many of you individually. Lebanon has a particularly strong developer group and the developer sessions were packed, taking easily more than 75% of the attendance. Much of this is due to the strong user group LevDev in Lebanon who I also met with the next day.
Given that Lebanon is just a 1:40 flight from Istanbul and because of the thriving developer community I expect Lebanon will be on my intinerary a lot. There is also the wonderful food and the beautiful city of Beirut....
