Annual Compressonist's Party
Tuesday, April 15th, evening
Yep, it's time again for the my annual compresionist's party at NAB. And now that I work for Microsoft, the snacks are better than ever! We're not exactly sure what time and which room yet; I'll share details when we get closer. But we try to start early enough and run late enough that we're a good stop on the way to or from dinner. Drop on in and let's talk about the news of the compression world from the show.
RSVP is not required, but if you think you're coming, drop me an email so I can track a rough headcount. My email is first name period last name at Microsoft.com
