I have to say I do work for a good company. I work on a small team that deals primarily with Microsoft solutions. We put in a lot of time learning how to make Microsoft stuff go and part of that effort involves taking in the occasional convention. This year my boss let me pick a convention and the lucky winner was TechEd Europe 2014. Off we went to Barcelona.
If you don’t know what TechEd is think of a gathering of some of the best and brightest presenters in the world speaking on topics specifically in their areas of expertise. Add to that hands-on labs, instructor-led labs and vendors showing off their latest kit. It can be a bit overwhelming at times but the volume and quality of what one learns is substantial. It’s also quite re-energizing.
In the next few posts I’m going to recount some of the highlights of a couple of the sessions I attended. Good stuff. Useful stuff.
