TechEd 2012 Thoughts

A008 (Large)s a Microsoft MVP for Small Business Servers and a Small/Medium Business (SMB) I.T. consultant, the conferences, seminars and user groups that I routinely attend or speak at are usually geared for the SBS/SMB marketplace. And that’s all great!

So to have an opportunity to attend and work at Microsoft’s TechEd North America conference (7,000+ attendees) this week was a huge thrill and honor for me.

002 (Large)I had a chance to meet, interact and speak with I.T. professionals  representing everything from large financial and commercial companies to colleges and universities.

The convention floor was jammed pack with vendors and presenters. I have done my share of “manning a booth” at conferences but this was amazing.

I understand that it took 3 weeks to set up the hundreds (if not thousands) of workstations that were available for use.

I was asked to facilitate two of the TechEd’s Birds of a Feather sessions. The first was on Advanced Architecture for Microsoft Sharepoint 2010, and the second was on Windows Multipoint Server Deployment.
