Today’s schedule was interestingly filled with some of the biggest-drawing sessions that have grown a bit of “fame” in the nerd world; notably, Mark Russinovich’s “Case of the Unexplained” and “How Many Coffees Can You Drink While Your PC Starts” with Matt Reynolds. I guess it’s smart to keep the biggest for last, but I had some great smaller sessions in there too.
Somehow, in the midst of that, I managed to spend a few moments putting together my wish-list (for my download script) of all the sessions I still need to see but was unable, bue to scheduling constraints. It’s a looooong list!
There’re so many good sessions filled with new information, best-practices, and notes from the field, that I will have to make a real concerted effort to take it all in over the coming months. But, I can’t not do it, with the wealth of material made available to me…
Perhaps expectedly, the few items I listed on my “Day 1” post still stand up as the biggest things (in my opinion) to come out of TechEd 2014. Many of the sessions I attended did very well in making sure to incorporate these new technologies either by directly relating, or demonstrating their collective and integral value. It really appears that RemoteApp and ExpressRoute are poised to shake things up and help provide a smoother path to change the way we compute.
Well, it’s all over but the clean-up. The day was full, all the way up to the “Closing Party” at Minute Maid Field in Houston. At least, for the first time in a week with 10,000 other people, I had some elbow room… 😉
The whole event was a massive effort. Thanks to eveyone that worked so hard to make it a success! I’m deeply grateful for having had the opportunity.
