Microsoft Community Summit 2008 ]inbetween[
If you're going to Tech·Ed Developer or IT Pro this year, be sure to come out to the Microsoft Community Summit 2008 (also known as ]inbetween[ or the Tech·Ed Tweener Weekend, since it's in between the two events). This is a 2-day free event hosted by the Florida user group communities for everyone who is attending one (or both) of the Tech·Ed events or anyone who wanted to go but wasn't able to. It's hosted at the Orlando Convention Center on June 7-8. Since it's a free event, lunch will not be ......

Birds of a Feather session - "Code Style and Standards"
I am moderating a reprise of my BOF session at last year's Tech·Ed. This one is simply called "Code Style and Standards", and is BOF864. It's currently scheduled for Wednesday, June 4 from 7:45 PM - 8:45 PM. Hopefully some of the people who attended last year's session will be at this one but I hope there are a lot of new faces as well. Technorati Tags: TechEd 2008, BOF ......

Tech·Ed 2008 Schedule Builder and Internet Calendar Subscriptions
Last year when the Tech·Ed 2007 Schedule Builder came out, I complained about how cumbersome it was to use. The idea of having to pick a time period from a drop down list that contains 28 items and constantly having to scroll up and down to view the page navigation and the small calendar view down the side is very "old school" and does not make it easy to use. As a result, I took advantage of the fact that the sessions were published as an RSS feed and created a set of Internet Calendars for each ......

Tech·Ed Developers: Birds of a Feather Topic
Many of you may remember that I moderated a Birds of a Feather session at Tech·Ed last year on Code style and standards. I am happy to announce that I will (hopefully) be moderating a follow-up session this year. From last years session, there were almost 100 people that showed up, so I hope to see you again so we can continue the discussion and find out how successful (or unsuccessful) you have been at implementing code standards and what new issues and ideas everyone has. Here is the topic abstract: ......

Tech·Ed for Novices, 2008 Edition
While I'm waiting to find out if I'll be able to go to Tech·Ed again this year I am still keeping an eye on what's going on with the conference. For last year's Tech·Ed, Microsoft created a "Tips for the Newbie" page (which is apparently no longer available) and I created a follow-on post called Tech·Ed for Novices. Since the conference this year is split into two separate weeks, I thought it was even more important for some tips on how to deal with the information overload and what Tech·Ed has to ......

Tech·Ed U.S. Just Got Bigger
Following the lead of Tech·Ed Barcelona, Tech·Ed U.S. 2008 will also be expanded into a "split event". For the first time, Tech·Ed U.S. is evolving from a one week conference to two separate back-to-back conferences: Tech·Ed U.S. 2008 Developers, June 3-6, and Tech·Ed U.S. 2008 IT Professionals, June 10-13, in Orlando, FL. Each event is priced separately, but there will be special package pricing for those that want to attend both events. The format is intended to provide the same experience but ......
