Happy System Administrator Appreciation Day!
I know this post is a bit late.
Anyway, we attended the Tech Ed 2008 IT Professionals in Orlando, Florida last month (June 10-13) and it was a lot of fun! Lots to do and learn. There were a lot of people who attended (close to 9,500 according to Microsoft).
This is my first Tech Ed and I’m really glad I was able to go to this one. There were a lot of sessions to choose from, plenty of labs, free stuff from vendors (if you let them scan your badge to get your information so they can spam you later), etc. I attended mostly sessions and labs on unified communications and security and most of them were pretty good.
There was also an attendee party at Universal Studios on Thursday night (June 12) and that was a lot of fun as well. They pretty much reserved the theme park for that night just for the Tech Ed attendees.
