TechEd Europe: Pre-Conference Sessions

TechEd Europe: Pre-Conference Sessions

  • Comments 3

Over 4000 attendees have registered thus far, leaving just another 2000 to register before the keynote at 10am tomorrow. We had a surge of registrations in the last week, which means we have about 500 more attendees than for last year's conference. As a result, you might see some slightly annoyed-looking speakers, as we now don't have enough conference bags to go around!

Congratulations to the top three pre-conference seminars (ranked by overall score):

  1. Implementing Server Security Focusing on Active Directory (John Craddock) - 7.57
  2. Building Data Driven Systems with Microsoft SQL Server 2000 & SQL Server 2005 (Kimberley Tripp) - 7.55
  3. = Getting 'Smart' with Smart Clients (Rob MacDonald and Tony Whitter) - 6.93
    = .NET for IT Professionals (Thomas Lee, Olga Londer, Andy Thomson, Dave Wheeler) - 6.93

Make sure you're at the keynote: with 3D glasses, 6000 drums, several product announcements and information on how you can make free telephone calls throughout the conference, it should be a blast!

Lastly, don't forget to add your own questions for the panels. I'm hosting a panel on SQL Server 2005 and futures, so let me know what questions you'd like the SQL team to answer...

See you tomorrow.

  • Well,
    the keynote was indeed interesting! The drummers were a little bit too 'popular' to my taste, but funny anyway. And for sure the various demonstrations of new software and techniques were very good! And btw... really like the substantial amount of Dell's all over the place. Without them I would be hopeless here, having lack of a wireless laptop right now... :)
  • Interesting that the BizTalk Pre-Conf session was not in the top 3 as I attended it and though tit was excellant. Never touched BizTalk prvioulsy and now feel I have a good grasp of the principles and can't wait for a project to use it on.

    Well done to Eric van Bever and Michael Hlobil, nice one lads.
