Chat Talks

Ever wanted to meet the Microsoft developers who built SQL Server 2012? Attendees were able to do just that, thanks to the new “I Made That!” Developer Chalk Talks, 30-minute conversations with Microsoft developers, who spoke about the functionalities and features they actually wrote. The Developer Chalk Talks schedule was posted out the room, which featured comfy sofas, a whiteboard, and snacks.
