CHI-NOG 04 was an another very successful event. This being only our 4th event, the popularity keeps on growing. We had over 60 people attend, filling up the room all the way including standing rooms at the Chicago Board of Trade building. This was our first event with three major sponsors, supporting the CHI-NOG community. Thanks to AMS-IX Chicago, ServerCentral and IIX. Please make sure to let them know how much you appreciate their support. It was the very first meeting where we had the first ever CHI-NOG t-shirts and sponsored social networking event.
Our speakers did an awesome job engaging the audience with their original presentations. All of the slides (pdf)have been uploaded on our website and can be found at http://chinog.org/meetings/chi-nog-04/agenda/.
