Fest10 Speakers
Glenn Block
Glenn is a PM for the new Managed Extensibility Framework in .NET 4.0. Prior to Microsoft, he worked for 10 years in various startups and ISVs wearing many different hats all related to developing software. Glenn has been writing code practically since the time he learned how to ride a bicycle. When he's not writing code, he's continuously improving on ways to build better software. Glenn is a geek at heart and spends a good portion of the rest of this time spreading that geekdom through conferences, and the community through groups such as ALT.NET. When he's not working and playing with technology, he spends his time with his wife and four year old daughter either at their Seattle apartment or at one of the local coffee shops.
Chris Hay
Chris is regularly caught by his wife browsing internet sites at 2.00am in the morning. Sadly he is always looking at .NET sites rather than the haunts frequented by his peers.

Chris has worked on various large projects and is specialised in C#, ASP.NET, AJAX, SQL and various other acronymns. Having always tried to keep at the front of the technology curve, i guess it is time to share that knowledge around a little.

Simple tip, never mention Silverlight infront of him (if you are in a hurry).

You can catch him on his blog http://silverlightuk.blogspot.com
Marcus Perryman
Marcus Perryman has worked at Microsoft for eight years in various developer roles including internal project development, Product Support Services for C++, as an Application Developer Consultant and now as a Developer Evangelist in the Community team providing advice, direction, best practice and other information to developer communities throughout the UK. For a number of years now Marcus has focused on the needs of developers producing mobile solutions on Pocket PC and Smartphone to sate his desire for small shiny object of desire!
Ryan Simpson
Ryan Simpson has worked for MSUK for 9 years, in both support and application development consulting roles, with a what can only be described as an addiction for the development of highly performant and scalable, Sql based .Net apps. His role takes him out to many customers and frequently into the MS UK scalability lab.

Jon Skeet
Mike Taulty
Mike Taulty is a member of the Developer and Platform Group at Microsoft in the UK, but began work as a professional developer in 1991. He spent the following 9 years working on a number of different operating systems (Unices, VMS, Windows NT) with various database technologies (Oracle, Informix, SQL Server) and distribution technologies (RPC, DCE, COM).

Mike joined Microsoft in 2000 working as a developer consultant with a sideline in ownership of the Microsoft UK scalability lab.

Today, Mike maintains a keen interest in a wide spectrum of technologies including Client, Database, Web Services and the core Microsoft .NET technologies - anything that looks to be in need of a little code.
