Thank you to everyone who came to Berlin for Tech·Ed Europe and attended an Exchange session, visited the Exchange booth to ask a question or check out a demo, as well as those of you who presented and who helped staff our booths in the TLC. You all helped make this year's event a success!

Approximately 6,000 IT Professionals and Developers stormed this year's event between November 8 through the 12 at the Messe Berlin Convention Center and many checked out the Exchange sessions including several completely full or near-full sessions.

More importantly, Exchange rocked at Tech·Ed Europe this year with an interactive session ranked as the top session based on overall satisfaction AND the top session ranked by presenter effectiveness - UNC321-IS: Microsoft Exchange 2010 SPI High Availability: Ask the Experts presented by Ross Smith and Scott Schnoll.  This is amazing especially considering the room was completely full and the session was the last session of the day at 6-7pm on Thursday, which was the second to last day of Tech·Ed.  Give these guys a pat on the back the next time you see them!

The Unified Communications track, which Exchange and Lync are a part of ranked in the top 5 tracks for overall satisfaction. If you attended but forgot to give feedback, please submit your session evaluation by November 19 so we can better shape our content in the future.

We also had a bunch of people stop by the booth to chat with us and ask good questions, tell us their favorite Exchange feature on camera, check out our new Exchange 2010 Architecture Poster as well as grab a t-shirt to show their enthusiasm for geeking out with Perry or for the best OWA theme.  We'll post videos and have a special edition episode of Geek out with Perry soon.

If you went to Tech·Ed Europe but missed a session or two or were unable to attend - don't fret. You can watch session recordings online here: http://europe.msteched.com/.

Thanks again to those of you help make this event brilliant.
