Reflections on techEd 2009 - Los Angeles 

This was the first techEd I have ever attended.  I heard some complainants about various events not being on the agenda this year, but I was impressed.

All of the sessions that I attended were good with one exception that will remain nameless.  I was impressed by Dan Holme's session on admin tools.  Some of the tools that were demonstrated were written/constructed by Dan for the Bejing Olympic games.  I was very impressed.  I have already started using the tools myself.  Dan's blog is here:

Another outstanding session was on security presented by Andy Malone entitled "Cybercrime: A Journey to the Dark Side"  Andy shared several free utilites.  Andy has exceptional presentation skills.  Andy's blog is here:

Other highlights included detailed information and demos of Windows 7 and Exchange 2010.  I am excited about both products that should be released around Christmas 2009.  If you haven't downloaded and installed Win 7 yet, mosey on over to the Microsoft site and grab the release candidate which is free and will be functional until July 2010.  Exchange 2010 is also available for download at Microsoft's site as well.

I am already making plans to attend techEd 2010 which will be June 7 - 11 in New Orleans.
