More data surfing! So far, we have seen which state
the attendees are coming from, the top 10
names and the
distribution of boys and girls.
Today I thought I would look at the split of job functions and I am horrified
at the result.
22% of attendees are Developers. That's so disturbing.
I told Dave Lemphers about this
inspired him to blog how to make Tech.Ed bigger and better. That may help
*next* year, but how can we get more devs along this year?
Come on Aussie Devs - Tech.Ed is going to
have a lot of relevance to you - from the deep dive
certification offers, the hands on
labs, and the chance to hang with your peers in the Dev'Garten, not to
mention the Architecture, Developer
Development and Messaging
& Mobility tracks, just to name a few.
What's missing? What is keeping developers away? Is it relevance? Is it cost?
Is it timing? Am I worrying for no reason?
