This year's TechEd is huge for the Data and Business Intelligence team. We have have a lot of people on the ground and an agenda packed with sessions, demos and hands on labs to help you learn everything you need to know. I'll be blogging as much as I can while I am here and will try and give those of you missing out an idea of what's going on. This year there is a lot of talk about SQL Server Denali and the buzz is incredible. If you haven't set your schedule yet, there is a fantastic lineup in the DBI track this year. There are 102, that's right, one hundred and two sessions and Hands on Labs in the DBI track this year focusing on the entire gambit of products including but not limited to SQL Server, PerformancePoint, SharePoint, PowerPivot, Reporting Services, Excel and Excel Services and Access.

If you made it to TechEd and aren't sure which sessions are going to benefit you the most, stop by any of the booths in the DBI area of the Exibition room and we'll be glad to help you figure out which sessions are going to provide the best bang for you buck, as well as which hands on labs are going to teach you what you really need to know.
