Presentation about TechEd 2009 at Ghent University

Yesterday, Jeroen and I did a two-hour presentation about TechEd at Ghent University. The audience was rather small, but they were very interested and asked a lot of good questions. We first did a little intro and then a big Q&A. Everybody got a list of sessions we attended and they where allowed to ask questions about those sessions. This was a risky format, but it worked pretty good.

MSP at TechEd Europe 2009

Disclaimer: this blog post went out of control; it has become a list of events, a brain dump. Stop reading and watch the pictures as soon as you get bored.

Last week, I have attended Microsoft TechEd Europe 2009 in Berlin. I was there together with two other Belgian MSPs, Jeroen and Kurt and with Jan, the Academic Program Manager at Microsoft Belgium. It was yet another awesome experience to be there. We have met a lot of people (other MSPs, other attendees, speakers, sponsors, technology experts, …) and attended a lot of interesting sessions.

The great thing about a conference like TechEd is that you get the invaluable opportunity to meet the people behind the products. Speakers allow you to ask questions, to talk in between sessions and to participate in panel discussions.
