So we're in a holding pattern while speakers and content providers begin building their content for MEDC. They have roughly 2 months to put their slides, demos and scripts together and upload them into our content tool. My personal hunch is that most people will do this last minute ;) so we're preparing for a spike. We're also contacting speakers directly to remind them of the deadlines.
We've also hired someone onboard to take care of the speakers. Jessica is our Speaker Manager and she's doing a great job at looking after them, communicating our desires and ensuring that the speakers have everything they need to deliver a successful and exciting session for all of you.
Being a Content Manager, you're also constantly being asked to assist in other events such as TechEd and others, ranging from internal events TechReady / MGB to external Microsoft (TechEd, PDC) and External-external such as DevConnections and GDC. Our team is basically assisting other events to determine the right content we should bring to these events. Right now, i'm working on some of TechEd Sessions and a new event called Mobilty Connections that will be happening in Fall in Vegas.
Will be back with more updates when we can begin our descent.
