My new record for largest audience #InsiderDevTour #GooseBus

Sometimes Microsoft reaches out to you when they need help or a bit of local flavor for an event. This was the case for the Insider Dev Tour, there was an email which followed with Allan Pead and myself volunteering to help. Seemed straightforward, I was expecting ~100 people at most. That is until a few weeks later when things started to spiral.

 

Did not see that coming

I got asked for a headshot, this was expected because I knew the site was going up soon. I was curious as to the other local speakers they found, I mean if they were relying on me to carry the event they are doomed right?
