Tech.Ed NZ 2009 was a great event, the turnout (equivalent to last year) was a big vote of confidence from our industry, especially as many companies faced difficult times and reduced training budgets.

But the event lives on…

This year we’re making Tech.Ed content available to more people. You can start with the large selection of Technical Breakout Sessions, Rock Star Interviews, Roaming Interviews, PowerPoint Decks, Blog Posts, Flickr Photo Stream, Tweets…all freely available to anyone.

We also have Tech.Ed Online Premium Content (which usually costs USD $250 for 12 months subscription) available for FREE  for Tech.Ed NZ 2009 delegates.
