Tech-Ed day 2
Did another ATE booth duty this morning and it was quite interesting. Yesterday there weren’t too many questions but this morning we where quite busy with all the people stopping by. Maybe the fact that we added beer to the list of possible questions answered helped but the questions where still all about .NET. Unfortunately we couldn’t help everyone, some questions about compiler errors using C++ where a bit hard as there was none around with C++ skills, fortunately Karen Liu from Microsoft was there and she is going to make sure the product team follow up. Other than that we where able to help most people which is a nice thing :-)
One thing that came up a lot was LINQ. People like it and want it :-) The only problem with LINQ is that it will be another year before we can start to use it for real :-(
So I didn't get to see any complete sessions this morning but just now when to Steve Laskers session about SQL Everywhere, oops that should be SQLCE. It was an interesting session where he demoed some of the new sync capabilities that they are working on.
Before the ATE duty started I did get a chance to see the first half of Aaron Skonnard's session about BizTalk. He did a nice job and the first half was pretty interesting, to bad I had to leave half way through but that is a session I will repeat on the DVD for certain.
Well time for a drink and another session to go to :-)
