TechEd Australia 2010: Windows Server Track Planning

As I said in a previous post track planning has begun for TechEd Australia 2010 and its time to begin the process of defining the content that’s going to be in each of the tracks.  This year I’m going to be looking after the content that is going into the Windows Server track.  And to kick this process off I want to get the communities thoughts as to what we should include.  The hard part of this process is we only have 16 sessions in the Windows Server hear me speaktrack this year.  We had 19 last year and 22 the year before that.  With so much content coming from so many areas there is a bit of a balancing act going to get all the content in. So with that check out some early look at sessions we will be working on as a start.  Of course as usual I’m pulling all 200 level content and going with 300 level and above.  Below is what we are starting with and to the right are the first round of blog buttons you can use on your blog or in your email signature.
