After 5 years of TechEd abstinence it’s time to visit the conference again. This years TechEd will be held in Berlin which is quite nice since traveling will be reduced to a minimum. Since the session schedule is already available I’ve already filled my calendar for TechEd week. Okay it’s impressive to see that so […]
The dates are: TechEd Berlin 2009 Developer 2-6 November – Messe Berlin, Deutschland – Germany TechEd Berlin 2009 IT-Professionals 9-13 November – Messe Berlin, Deutschland – Germany Comment if you’re going too!
Like every year I want to point to the tech-ed online website where you can get many useful information around the tech-ed developer events this year… Source: http://www.microsoft.com/techedonline/default.aspx
Tomorrow the US TechEd takes off. If you cannot attend personally you can attend it virtually. Microsoft hosts a website called “Virtual TechEd” where you can watch talks and keynotes via streaming video. Beside watching the talks you can listen to the TechEd radio livestream.

That was the coolest Microsoft presented party I’ve taken part in. The live band was great: Scissor Sisters. Man that was an awesome show. So I took some pictures of the location which was calles “Studio 7” – Actually it was Hall 7 of the RAI Conference Center…but see for yourself how it looked: that’s […]
So there was the second Keynote “The Future of Software” held by the Senior Vice President, Chief Technical Officer for Business Platform of Microsoft David Vaskevitch. As it was a great keynote it was also a inspiring keynote. I mean: the bottom line of the keynote was: It’ll all be automated. It’ll all be connected […]
Finally there was some time for a Q&A with Rafal Lukawiecki. And not only that I could talk to one of the best speakers at TechEd by far, I also got his business card + handwritten note. ´
As I am a true fan of the sessions of Rafal Lukawiecki. And the fact that he is talking about really interesting subjects leads me directly to his todays session “Holistic Security”. “You know all the security technologies, but are you secure? How much should security cost? The tough realities of today make security of […]
There’s (almost) no Microsoft event without Refreshments and magic fridges. So there’s almost no conference blogging without blogging about those life-improving features. (this picture has nothing to do with this article ™) refilling the refreshment yummy So this year there’s almost the same service as it was last year. Great and tasty! Always refreshing. But […]
This is a quite good panoramic view of the RAI Conference Center entry…and the Microsoft Billboards …
The day started with a “Hands-on-Lab” Session. And of course: A Hands-on-Lab is the best way to get into the technologies. In this session I migrated a 32 Bit SQL Server Database to a 64 Bit SQL Server Database (all SQL Server 2005)…it went flawlessly with the help of Visual Studio 2005. ;) Dual-Itanium 2…my […]
Today we had the best meal at TechEd by far! hungry, eh?
This day truely is an Intel day. So there’s another Instructor-led Hands-on-Lab today. With vTune we profiled and optimized a Sample Application that displays a Web Album. The techniques that are used are commonly known like Thread Pooling. But how you use them properly is another story. And that’s simply what this session is about: […]
The second session with Mark Russinovich that I attended this TechEd was the “Understanding and Fighting Malware”-Session. Actually it was an overviewing Session and nothing too deep into it. But interesting enough there were some technologies demonstrated that I personally have never seen live. I knew that they are there and what they are supposed […]
So the most interesting session so far was the Instructor-led Hands-on-Lab which was held by Aaron Coday from Intel. “Most new systems today feature Hyper-Threading or – increasingly – multi-core processors. Your software can readily take advantage of these – using multithreading. However, developing, debugging and optimizing multithreaded programs have always presented a formidable challenge […]
So I installed the Beta of Windows Server 2003 R2 which is: “Try Windows Server 2003 R2, the update version of the award-winning Windows Server 2003 with Service Pack 1 (SP1), that extends your connectivity and control. “ …nothing new in the west – just an updated 2003 Server + several Resourcekits that ship with […]
Since I am mainly with Matej and my Session turned out to be not very good I decided to go with Matejs session choice which is: “Introducing Windows Server 2003, Computer Cluster Edition”. The Senior Product Manager of the Computer Cluster Edition gave an overview of the newly member of the Windows Server 2003 family. […]
We attended the Chalk and Talk Session “Microsoft and Opensource” today… Actually a very interesting session, but I spare any comment on it here, just not to annoy anyone (which would otherwise be possible). “Many customers have questions about Microsoft’s view of Open Source and its ability to coexist and interoperate in a Microsoft environment. […]
There is a huge number of side-events at TechEd Europe 2005 – like every year. But this year there’s something special: The TechEd for Students. A one-day event especially for students. It’s just a 10 minute walk away from the RAI Conference Center – so nothing to complain about. Directly after the TechEd Europe 2005 […]
I was at TechEd Europe 2004 – and there was a site called “TechEdBloggers.net“. My colleague and friend Andreas Heil and myself blogged the whole event. And we even had some of the top-positions in the TechEdBloggers Ranking. So I thought: Hey, this years is going to be great: Back in the Ranking: Schrankmonster! But […]
This is where the TechEd Europe 2005 takes place…well actually the TechEd Europe 2005 takes place BEHIND me when I took that picture…but ;) possibly nobody will post THIS perspective
so the Keynote was not what I expected but infact there were some good news. For example the Launch-Dates for SQL Server 2005, Visual Studio 2005 and Biztalk Server 2006: It’ll be in the week of November 7th !!
Well. The Keynote. It’s less than I expected -actually it’s a nearly 100 percent copy of the Orlando TechEd Keynote… damn! – I knew everything they would say… well said. So here are some panoramic views for your pleasure:
so we’re nearly at the end of this day’s sessions and we’re already at the end of our powers…so we found a great place just in the corner of the hall to sit and relax a little bit…
there’s a little sticker on the every TechEd 205 badge and they say it’s an experiment/demonstration for the keynote which is going to take place tomorrow. Infact the paper I’ve got with the badge said that there is indeed an RFID device embedded into the sticker. That device holds a random number (approx. the one […]
the break-of-the-session panoramic view In the first Session of todays series of “Windows Internal & Advanced Troubleshooting” Preconf Sessions Mark Russinovich and David Solomon talked about some tools and how to use them. Especially the Sysinternals Process Explorer was part of some very interesting demos. Source: http://www.sysinternals.com/Utilities/ProcessExplorer.html
The PreConf Session “Windows Internals & Advanced Troubleshooting” is about to start in a few minutes. The Session will take 8 hours with some breaks – so we’re really going to get into it. Actually I figured out that I only have the outdated Book from the Speakers Mark Russinovich and David Solomon. So I […]
Arrived! So we got here really early. And this year, after the really really ugly bag of the last years TechEd there is finally a great TechEd bag!!! I told you it’s empty: So. I think It’ll get crowded in a hour or something.
The TechEd Europe 2005 hasn’t started yet but the interactive Webcams are online. You can look into some of the halls, the Keynote Hall for example: And you can control the webcam with some presets. some other cams… Source: http://rai.webcam.nl/
I am on my way to Amsterdam. It’ll probably take one day for me to get apropriate Internet Access – so don’t cry when there’s no update until tomorrow.
I thought about the possibility to have a blogger dinner/meeting at TechEd Europe this year. Since there were only a few bloggers on last years european TechEd we had no meeting – but this year I expect a lot more bloggers to be on TechEd. So if you’re at TechEd Europe 2005 and want to […]
So. Registration is done. Now I need the Accomodation for the week in Amsterdam…. and the flight…
Great news! I’ll be at this years TechEd in Amsterdam to… “..find out about the latest information on Microsoft technologies and tools, whilst networking with industry leaders. Take part in four days of in-depth technical training and evaluation on current and soon-to-be released technologies. “ If you want to meet me there, drop me a […]
