Well another year of TechEd is gone! I worked at the company booth again this year providing demos (handing out stshirts and pens) mostly of hardware and software. For those that stopped by the booth, thanks! I hope you enjoy the tshirt and pens.
I enjoyed the week in Orlando (Mainly the resort), there is much to do there and some great weather except for Wednesday and Thursday where I was soaked to the bone by the rainstorm getting to the Hardrock Cafe Live Cluster-Funk Party held by Double-Take Software – great event guys! For those that are not familiar with the company, heres a plurb form their site "Double-Take Software products and services enable customers to protect and recover business-critical data and applications to support disaster recovery, high availability and centralized backup. We provide solutions that make recovery easy for Exchange, SQL, Virtual Systems, Oracle and more."
We stayed at the at the Marriott World Center Orlando – what a place! Check out the tour available on their site. A few of us became regulars at Champions and the outdoor lounge by the pool. I would like to return there next year to enjoy some of the sites and golf!
I thought the TechEd floor setup was cool, it was reminiscent of the PDC 2005 in LA with all the different lounges and theaters setup based on focus area. For those that enjoy pictures, have a look at my Photo Album – Tech Ed 2007.
