We have begun the planning for Tech·Ed North America 2010, which takes place in New Orleans from June 7-10, 2010, and the first step is to request Breakout Session topic ideas from experts like yourself. We hope you will consider submitting one or more session ideas before the January 15 deadline.
Breakout Sessions are the primary way Tech·Ed attendees receive Microsoft content. These sessions are lecture-style presentations held in rooms seating anywhere from 200-1,200 people. Breakouts are 75-minutes in length and speakers use PowerPoint slides and demos; leaving 10-15 minutes at the end to answer questions. These sessions are recorded and available at Tech·Ed Online to all paid attendees from the 10 Tech·Ed conferences held around the world during the 12 months following Tech·Ed North America.
Tech·Ed is navigated by the attendees using Tracks. Each Track represents a group of Microsoft products, technologies and/or solutions. Please keep our Track framework and focus in mind as you develop ideas for Breakout Sessions.
The sessions for the architecture track should help attendees make better architecture choices, whether it’s researching and evaluating new technology and platforms, choosing or creating patterns, guidelines and practices, or influencing and educating the business team.
The audience in the architecture sessions at Tech Ed is a mix of practicing architects, as well as developers and IT professionals who have a substantial architectural focus in addition to their primary roles.
