.NET Framework 3.0 - MSDN Event

Monday I've been to the MSDN Event (.NET Framework 3.0) at Kinepolis (Brussels). The event was already fully booked (750 attendees) a few weeks before! Very interesting to see that so many people in Belgium are already interested in the .NET Framework 3.0. My guess is that still a lot of developers are currently using the .NET Framework 1.1 (not even 2.0), but they are already attracted to many of the new features in the .NET Framework 3.0 : WPF, InfoCard, WCF and WF.

Is this typical behavior for the IT industry? Looking at the future and learning what to expect and how to prepare for it, while still - happily or not - facing the daily issues of the current (old?) technology? Wouldn't it be great to have a last/final version of the framework (all-in!) ;-)? Yeah right! Dream on! It's our destiny as techies to adapt ourselves again and again. We may have a high-demanding job, but it will never be boring. That's for sure!

By the way : Peter Himschoot and Ingo Rammer did a great job in presenting the new features of the .NET Framework 3.0. Like always, no remarks on the organization of the events : enough food and drinks, even with a packed Kinepolis. Looking forward to the next one!
