TechEd Reflections

TechEd is over for another year. The journey home is done (not a bad flight – I slept for most of this one) and I’ve had some sleep.

On the whole the conference was quieter than the last couple of years. A few of the big name exhibitors didn’t turn up this year and my impression was that attendance was down compared to 2007.  The content seemed a bit less technical in some cases – may be just perception.

The real plus side was that I had more opportunities to talk to Microsoft people and vendors than in previous years.  Being on Ask the Experts was fun.  Hope to do that again.

Was it worth attending?  Absolutely.

The high spot of the week – The PowerShell Community dinner. Brilliant mixture of Microsoft, Vendors, MVPs and community. 

TechEd EMEA is in Berlin in November 2009.  I’ve started making my plans.
