According to John Alexander and from what others have been telling me, St. Louis had the largest gathering so far for the ASP.NET Roadshow that is roaming the country. That is outstanding, but we also know that the IT training/knowledge interest is extremely high in the Midwest. I am quite thankful that Microsoft came to St. Louis with this show. It wasn't too long ago where the only Midwest city that would be targeted for these sorts of things would be Chicago. When it comes to IT in St. Louis, one stat I like to say is that St. Louis is fourth in the nation in the number of corporate headquarters it has (after NYC, LA, and Chicago). Lots of corporate headquarters means lot of IT jobs. Well, anyway, I am getting off track. I look forward to more events coming our way. I feel that we did prove ourselves with this show.
