My first MVP summit

Back in Denmark after an awesome mvpsummit.

This was my first time attending the MVP Summit, first trip to the USA and first time experience what jet-lags is all about. This was pretty energized consuming!

I arrived at the Seattle airport Saturday after a 14 hour flight, and took a cab directly to Hilton Hotel in Bellevue. When I arrived to the hotel my roommate Thomas has already chosen a bed and left the building.

I went downtown Bellevue to checkout the city for a few hours, then I went back to the hotel lobby and drank a few beers and saw some american football (this I don't understand).

The MVP summit was really great and inspirational, sadly I can't say much about the session's, but did talked to Anders Hejlsberg and Mads Kristensen and some other cool guys from Microsoft.
Unfortunately I did only shortly meet with my MVP Community Lead William Jansen who is just doing and awesome job, hopefully I would meet him again in the future.

MVP Summit is not only about technical sessions and the future of Microsoft products, but also about connecting with other MVP's, and that was amazing to geek and have fun with fellow MVP's.

I met to MVP's from Denmark Thomas Martinsen and Morten Nielsen who both were Client Developer MVPs.
Later I bumped into Mariano Gomez, great guy who quickly found out that I was having a Dynamics AX 2012 issue, and invited me to talk with the rest of the Dynamics MVP's pretty cool, here I met Murray Fife who knew a lot about the Product Configurator.
Later I met Azure MVP Magnus Mårtensson who got me drunk - pretty funny guy from sweden.

The last day me and my roommate took a cab to the Space Needle here we helped a guy to take pictures while he purposed to his girlfriend, After that we played tourist downtown Seattle.

Thomas and I at the great wheel

Last we went to the Rockbottom Brewery in Bellevue and drank a few beer's

All in all a great first time MVP summit, hopefully I will have the opportunity to attend again next year!
