Convergence 2008 Miscellany
Convergence 2008 was a mammoth affair, with dozens of classes, hundreds of exhibitors, and thousands of attendees. Here are a few lasting impressions, in no particular order:
--This was the largest Convergence event thus far, with some 9,700 attendees—just short of the 10,000 Microsoft was shooting for, but well over the 8,000-plus of last year’s session in San Diego, which was itself well in excess of the 6,000-plus of the prior year.
--Dynamicx AX attracted the lion’s share of the show attention, by virtue of the introduction of AX 2009 (code-named AX 5.0), and related demonstrations, in preparation for its actual shipment this spring.
