TechEd 2006 Barcelona : Pre-Conf

Yesterday, I arrived in Barcelona for the 2006 TechEd: Developers conference.

I’ll be hovering around the ATE and community lounge area mostly, while trying to catch a session here and there.

Here’s the first picture, showing the bag there giving out this year.

TechEd Bag

It’s not a bad bag, although I prefer a rucksack.

I’m not sure how many attendees there are this year, and it’s hard to compare since it’s the first time the Europeand event is split into a week for developers and then a week for IT pros. It’s kinda sad that it’s split, because even as a developer I’d love to see new technology, tools, tips, tricks and best practices that relate to administration, like system center, MOM, etc. Also it’s a chance to talk to eachother without the traditional wall between the two departments.

It’s nice to finally meet Damir and the rest of the INETA Europe board team in person.
