Well, the long awaited Heartland Developer Conference (HDC) took place today here in sunny, Des Moines, IA!  The turn out was great!  All of the speakers did an excellent job with their presentations!  A big thanks to Joe Olsen, Kent Tegels and Jeff Brand for all of their efforts into making this happen!

Some of my highlights from the HDC were Rocky Lohtka's keynote speach on SOA, Sam Gentile's in-depth look at C# generics.  Man, those two presentations were the meal that satisfied my geek-hunger.

Plans for HDC '05 are underway and a brand new concept called the Heartland Developer Network (HDN) is also in-store for next year.

Man, all of this is going to be great!
