Next week (8th to 12th Nov 2010) at TechEd in Berlin there will be lots of great sessions, lots of superb labs, lots of fascinating BOFs and lots of booths – including the awesome and hugely exciting Microsoft Platform Ready booth. I will be linking up with colleagues from across Europe and the USA to make sure we can get the message around the excellent benefits of the Microsoft Platform Ready to as many ISVs* as we can during the week – plus give away some great prizes.

If you are attending TechEd then please pop by. I plan to be there at least every lunchtime and the last break of each morning (bar Monday).

This is me :-)

As an added incentive – I have a free book on the Windows Azure Platform for the first 50 UK based ISVs who signs up to MPR during TechEd and give me their postal details at the stand (For simplicity the books are staying in the UK while I venture to Germany)

*Are you wondering what an ISV is and whether you are one?

ISV = Independent Software Vendors - that is you write some kind of product that you sell to more than one customer. My new team is all about helping ISVs and we have a team blog and brand new twitter account which I will increasingly be found on. If you are an ISV, please fave the blog and follow the twitter account. And if you are an ISV please do sign up to Microsoft Platform Ready  – the benefits are already great and will just keep getting better!
