Tech-Ed Day 1 Part 1: 2 days late..
So, I *finally* found some free time to get around to my poor, neglected Blog. It's been hard for me to find the time to blog as my free net time has been spent working on the issues that *conveniently* popped up at my day job - ack! But, finally here it is:
Yeah - I'm at Tech-Ed!
Marcie (aka Datagrid Girl) and Eli are staying with me and we started the trek from Fort Worth to Dallas early this morning. We arrived after the keynote and got registered. Of course, we all brought our own laptop and laptop bag - not thinking about the cool Tech-Ed 2003 goodie bag we would receive. So, we then proceeded to switch out our bags for the Tech-Ed bag and wade through all the SWAG we got. While we were doing that Rob Caron and Paul Wilson stopped by to say "Hi". I was really excited to meet Paul - I am a big fan of his templating techniques and even presented on them at a FWDNUG meeting. I later found that Paul mentioned me in his Blog - cool!
The first session I attended was Don Box's presentation on Web Services. Some interesting stuff, plus I got my first look at InfoPath. Don has my vote for the most interesting slide deck presentation I've seen to date: an XML doc in an IE window.
I'm off to the Developer Party with Eli... Day 1 Part II to follow later...
