Tech Ed 2007 Gold Coast has started!!
Well, it's on. Microsoft's Tech Ed has started. http://www.microsoft.com/australia/teched07/index.aspx
So what happens here, and what does this have to do with me? Well, I've volunteered to help out on a couple of the days, the bonus to this is that Microsoft has allowed all volunteers free access to the event, and what an event it will be.
Tonight, I believe, is the Xbox party and what a party that will be. There are over 2000 registered guests and lots of stuff to check out. From the site:
In-depth technical sessions
With in-depth analysis of a particular product or area, the 14 key Technical Tracks of advanced training will give you practical skills you can take back to your workplace to help you make your mark.
Pre-conference Deep Dive workshops
If you want to get a deeper understanding of a particular area, Deep Dive Workshops are the best way to accelerate your skills and get the instructor-led, hands-on experience you need to make your mark.
Go home certified! Sit for industry-recognised certification exams at Tech.Ed 2007 for just $90 and save 50% on the standard price (normally $180 incl GST).
Access to industry legends
Mixing with the best of the best in the industry is an opportunity too good to miss. It's a great chance to get noticed and hear the latest IT news first hand. And remember, it's not just what you know...
Catch up with old friends and meet new people that share your interests. Swap stories, exchange ideas and relax and enjoy yourself at the social events.
Join small informal groups to discuss your area of expertise with Microsoft experts, and get specific advice and information from industry gurus.
Massive exhibition area
Be among the first to see the latest and greatest innovations from Microsoft and Partners, covering every area of technology imaginable.
Believe you me, this is an oppurtunity worth checking out. When they say 'Massive' exhibition area, they are not joking. In the commnet sections, I would estimate at least 100 pcs for anyone to use.
It's going to be a great week :)
