TechEd Schedule

Now don’t freak out when you see this. I know I’ve got three to four sessions in a time slot. There is a method to my TechEd madness. I have a theory about these types of technical conferences; if you aren’t getting anything out of a session, leave. Go to another one. Not all speakers can effectively present their material nor does their material always reflect the abstract. One session might be repeating the same information as a previous session. In these cases it’s in your best interest to attend something else. At TechEd I will be focusing on the new versions of Visual Studio and SQL Server. My manager wants me also to keep an eye on Sharepoint, DTS and Reporting Services. No problem. It should be a great conference.
