I've had a couple of weeks' silence on the blog, for which I apologise. TechEd was such a full-on experience that it took me a full week's vacation to recover!
Overall, we were delighted with the success of the conference. I've browsed through the online feedback for a good proportion of the 290 sessions and the overall evaluation form, which was an endeavour itself given the number of attendees and quantity of feedback. The breakout sessions scored an overall average of 7.16 / 9.0, which is a decent improvement on last year. I need to update the table I posted earlier in the week with the final top 10 sessions: if you ever get a chance to hear any of these speakers, you can be assured that you will be both entertained and informed.
So what's next? Well TechEd Europe 2005 of course takes place between 5th-8th July in Amsterdam. In the meantime systems administrators and infrastructure experts might be interested in IT Forum, a conference focused on operating and managing Microsoft server and client systems; this takes place in Copenhagen between 16th-19th November.
