Tech-Ed the week after
So finally back home after a week of Tech-Ed and time to reflect on the week.
Overall it was a great week with very few downsides. The only real downside was the hotel, my own choice, and the fact that La Rambla was pretty much a brothel at night. But not much of a problem and I was pretty busy anyway so it only bothered me a bit on the way back at the end of the day.
On average the sessions I went to where good, some very good, so no complaints there. I would like to see some more in-depth coverage of subjects but then being an MVP probably means I am ahead of the pack and may things are just all that easy. Yea right, had an interesting discussion about deploying a VSTO solution to 150 workstations and that is certainly not easy.
Being on the ATE panel was nice to. Except for the first day we got plenty of questions about a whole range of subjects. Not surprisingly LINQ is a major source of questions, even if it is still a year away. Interestingly wearing the ATE badge even resulted in questions while in the subway, no rest :-)
The food and drink, while plenty full, where not all that good this year. Specially the coffee sucked big time :-( But then the waffles where great :-)
All in all I had a great time and hope to do it again next year!
