In a couple of weeks I’ll be heading down to Austin Texas for the annual TCEA conference. This is one of the biggest and best (we are talking Texas after all) educational technology conferences going. I hope to attend the TA/CT SIG meeting where I always run into some wonderful high school computer science teachers. And friends of mine will be presenting a session about using XNA in the classroom for teaching computer science. I hope to see many friends old and new while I am there enjoying some real Texas BBQ!
Microsoft will also be hosting some workshops during the conference. Microsoft’s sessions will be held in Room 410 located at the Hilton Hotel Austin next to the convention center.
