Final day of the TechEd conference and I still haven't won an XBox game pack yet or an XBox bag from filling in my eval forms. Oh well...
Attended Marcie Robillards (aka DatagridGirl) presentation yesterday which went very well. She is a great speaker, knows her content well and keeps it lighthearted too which was good. I picked up many handy tips. Well done Marcie.
It was also good to finally meet some people I had only ever chatted to online in particular, Marcie, Ken Schaefer and Thomas Johansen (hope I spelt that right :). It was excellent putting faces to people who I had only ever “typed” to, its amazing how wrong your own expectations of how someone will look when you finally meet them ;-) (Those guys all made me feel very old....:(
Final set of sessions today, I have just completed the Advanced ADO.NET and Securing ASP.NET applications which were both very good and I learned a couple of useful tricks to impress my colleagues when I return to work. My final session is the .Net Reference building blocks by DotNetDan which should be good. Being the last presentation of the whole of TechEd means he has a hard job on his hands but I am sure he will do great. Well I am off to check the video screens to see if I have won a prize yet .. ;-)
