It was an incredible weekend with close to 300 attendees for the second annual SQL Saturday/Code Camp in beautiful Costa Rica. Plenty of great sessions and great speakers were on hand from all over. In fact, I  interviewed a good number of presenters from the US as well as Costa Rica. The SQL Saturday engine is a strong one I am finding, with many presenters traveling the circuit. I presented a session on building a Windows 8 app from scratch and showed the ComponentOne Tools, Studio for WinRT/XAML. The speaker dinner was sensational with a view like I have never seen before, way up high on a mountain looking down on San Jose. Hats off to Eduardo Castro and crew for flawless execution at this event! I love Costa Rica!
