This year Tech Ed is moving from Barcelona to Berlin. It’s also been squeezed into a single week – 7,000 developers and IT professionals descending on Berlin to enjoy a packed week full of technology. My first Tech Ed was only a few years ago, and I couldn’t believe the size of the event (and that was when it was two separate events in separate weeks) nor the amount of information that I was trying to take in in such a short period.

We’ve also traditionally been able to offer significantly reduced places to a few education customers, and a general academic discount for many others. This year, we’ll still be offering the Academic discount – details below – but unfortunately no free places. (Sorry). Hopefully, if your job involves making your college’s technology work smoothly and developing it as a strategic asset for the future, then you’ll still find enough in the agenda to justify the cost from the training budget. (Not sure if my wife’s tactic would work for this – don’t tell them the price, simply tell them that you’ve saved €800 on the normal registration price, and it’s less than half price)

ps Just in case you thought you’d missed another budget announcement, don’t panic. The 19% VAT thing is because the event is held in Berlin, and the EU rules stipulate we have to charge the VAT rate of the country where the event is delivered.
