There are normally over 50 UK Education attendees for colleges, universities and local authorities at Tech∙Ed Europe, which is in Berlin this November 8 – 12. Given that there’s a growing band of “in-school developers”, then perhaps this may be of interest to some school staff. It’s a full week of deep technical education, hands-on-learning and opportunities to connect with Microsoft and Community experts one-on-one.  The main reason that people attend is to get deep training to our technologies, as well as the chance to see what’s going on across the breadth of our product portfolio.

Although the full conference price is €1,895, there is a discount code available to staff and students at UK Education institutions, which reduces the price by more than 50% to €795.

I’m not allowed to publish the discount code on this blog, so just drop me an email  and I will send you the code via email.

If you don’t qualify for the academic discount, then remember you can still save €500 by registering before 5th July 2010

The organisers describe the event this way:

Tech∙Ed provides the most comprehensive technical education across Microsoft’s suite of released, or soon to be released, products, solutions and services. Tech∙Ed is for IT professionals and developers who are involved in implementing, deploying or building solutions using Microsoft technologies.

Having attended a few years ago, I came away with a brain full of information, so I’m definitely a fan of the event.
