  • Tech-ed survival tips, 3

    7) Go easy on the coffee. People tend to drink more coffee than they normally do. This has various reasons, including the fact that the coffee at tech-ed events tends to be high quality. If you do it can mess with your body in various ways. 8) Go easy on the sugars. Every break, there are muffins, waffles...

    4) Take your notes during the session. You get so much information that you will have forgotten a lot by the end of the session if you don’t. You’ll also forget the structure in which it was presented. Writing things down as you go along makes it much easier. If you make your notes directly...

  • Tech-ed Amsterdam 2012: Day 5

    I checked out and brought my luggage with me to the RAI. There is a luggage / cloak room where almost no one drops off their stuff, so I am using that one instead of the main one. Hopefully, it’ll save me some time when it is time to leave. Yesterday I hung out with Steve for a while. It’s...

  • Tech-ed Amsterdam 2012: Day 4

    I played some more with my Azure devbox, and I have to say the responsiveness is great. I had another phone call from the home front, and I am looking forward to going home and see my family. The weather here is clearing up nicely, and the park I have to walk through was just lovely. Lots of trees and...

  • Tech-Ed Amsterdam 2012: Day 2

    Breakfast was the same as yesterday. I thought of going someplace else, but didn’t for 3 reasons. First, tech-ed starts at 08:30, and the restaurants are at the other side of the RAI. I would really have to hurry in order to get there, have a meal, and go to the RAI. Second, the food at the restaurants...

  • Tech-ed Amsterdam 2012: Day 1

    As it turns out, my prediction about breakfast turned out to be true. In fact, I’d say it is not even worthy of the name ‘breakfast’. There were a handful of bread rolls, no bacon, no cheese, no meat, no honey, …. They did have some pre-packaged jam, chocolate paste, cream cheese...

  • Tech-ed Amsterdam 2012: Day 0

    It’s off to tech-ed again. It’s been 3 years since my last attendance. Last year, there was no tech-ed, and the year before that, my colleague was the one who could go. Technically, last year I could have gone to tech-ed in the US, but I didn’t fancy flying to LA for a 4 day event....

  • Tech-ed Berlin 2009: Afterthoughts

    All in all, tech-ed was worth it this year. If you’re an an IT professional, then visiting tech-ed is a valuable learning experience. Even though most of my job involves off-the-shelf process control software, this software is still running on the Windows platform, and uses Windows and Microsoft technologies...

  • Heroes - The evolution show

    El show ha terminado. Mientras escribo esto, el resto de la gente debe estar viendo a Steve Balmer tirar sillas o a punto de empezar la fiesta final, y yo en cambio aquí estoy, en el tren de camino a casa... :-( Atrás quedan dos días muy interesantes, llenos de sesiones técnicas,...

  • Tech-Ed developers Barcelona: Tuesday

    After a healthy breakfast (Bacon and coffee) I was off to the convention centre. The weather is nice. Wireless access is a bit slow, but I suspect that this has something to do with hundreds of users sharing a 11 Mbs network. Keynote It’s a keynote. You see one, you’ve seen them all. This...

  • Tech-Ed developers Barcelona: Monday

    The airport It seems that today, there is a new set of regulations regarding the transport of liquids and gels in hand luggage. After being asked whether I had possibly nasal spray, shaving cream or beverages on me for the 5 th time I was allowed to check in. Then I discovered that I also was not allowed...
