Coatsey has pulled some quick stats from the TechEd09 registration report… looks like the most popular name attending the conference this is year ‘Dave’. The most popular female name is Simone, which I reckon is a simple spelling mistake.

One stat missing is the HUGE number of partners going… probably because of the Australia Partner Conference being at the same venue the week before. My team (the now called Partner Technology Advisors – more on that later) have put together 6 cool reasons why TechEd is cool for partners… and quite frankly anybody who works with technology.  My top reason (over and above the netbook) is probably #3 as Andy says, it’s all about the community… keep up-to-date with the Twitter account (@auTechEd), for the breaking news and the hashtag #auteched.

There is a whole bunch of other social networking options on the TechEd Connect page as well as some other useful info over on Andy Coates, Nick Hodge’s, Andrew Dugdell’s and Jorke’s TechEd backstage blogs… whilst you’re there, check out the menu.

Look forward to seeing you there.
