Well that was the hugest Tech.Ed ever and all I can say is "ma legs, ma legs.. can't feel my legs!..". I spent the last 2 days on the MS showcase stand around the Dev Garten and talked to literally hundreds of customers and partners. For those that want to follow up with feel free to ping me.
Caught a very cool presentation by Steve Riley - The Fortified Datacentre of the Future - Build it and they will come - a subject very close to my heart.
Movieworld was the party venue which we were a little late getting to after taking some of our influencers out to dinner to a very reputable establishment... Then tried to show our Eric from the IIS team the town with Mossyblog - but I was locked out and it was a slow night.
Final day rocked, being Frank's last day as an Microsoft Australia employee Nigel and David hi-jacked Frank's session and sang "Bye Bye, Mr Developer Guy"
Then in the lock note we all wore our "Farewell Frank" shirts that have Simpson's characters of the whole DPE team. Check out the delicategenius' flickr for who is who.
All in all a nice send off for Frank, who I'm sure will be back for future Tech.Ed's.
Good Luck Frank!
We also managed to hook up the Geek Girls - and we have something special coming from them in the future.
