TechEd 2009

My boss and I are going to Tech Ed 2009, which is always kind of cool. Unfortunately the sessions listed this year look a little boring… if it doesn’t say .Net 4.0, VS2010 or TFS2010 it doesn’t look particularly interesting. Hopefully there’ll be enough exciting stuff in those sessions to make the price tag worthwhile, and given what I’ve seen on the ‘net it certainly looks promising that will be case.

Some of the Sql Server 2008 sessions might be interesting, but we’re not likely to convince any of our customers to upgrade any time soon so we’re not going to be using it for years, and some of the Sql 2008 sessions conflict with .Net/VS/TFS sessions, so I can’t go to those ones anyway.

There’s also the usual scheduling issues; some sessions there’s nothing on I want to go to, other sessions there are three or four conflicting presentations I’d like to attend.

Anyway, here’s my anticipated schedule… why not leave a comment with your own thoughts/schedule ?
