There are worse problems to have, but a person really needs stamina to keep up with all of the possible tech events in SoCal. I had fun at TechEd, working in the Oslo booth with the team (finally met Don Box in person!), leading the WiT event, attending sessions (mostly BI or Windows Mobile), and, of course, being social.
If you didn’t make it to TechEd US last week, check out TechEd Online. I think one of the most interesting parts is the blog aggregator page – here. Also our friends at TechZulu did a series of interviews with top TechEd developer speakers at TechEd. I’ll post links to those videos soon. TechZulu was also kind enough to cover the WiT WomenBuild SeriousPlay with LEGOs at TechEd. That video will be linked here as well. Check out the facebook group for more info about this global program.
Now that we are ‘post-TechEd’, what events are on my radar this week?
MON – DigitalDrinksLA at the Viceroy. Facebook link here. TUES – geekDinner at uWink in Hollywood. Upcoming link here. WED – MSDN event ‘Best of Mix’ at MS LA. Registration link here. Event is also running at MS Irvine next week (Thurs, May 28) – reg link here. I plan to definitely be at the Irvine instance, probably will bring some of my books to raffle and sign as well.
WED – DigitalGames go Social Panel discussion at uWink in Hollywood – reg link is here.
THURS – Black Card Circle in Pasadena. I think this is an invite only event – it’s tech and charity, so, of course, I will go. :) Here’s the facebook link.
Lest you think that all I do is attend events, I’ll mention that I am beginning work on a couple of projects as well.
1) DigiGirlz summer courses and events.
2) SQL Data Services webcasts for the Azure team
3) Abstracts and Sessions for TechEd South Africa in Durban Aug 2 – 5.
