Tech Days 5 Minute Demo Shootout
By carlaking on Nov 01, 2007
A Tech Days tradition is a five-minute "demo shootout" in the morning that quickly shows the participants what they can learn in depth later in the day during the regular sessions. The audience votes by applause which team has the best demos. Today's was a tie. Here are a few shots from the shootout, and links to more info on the products and technologies used.
