Day 1 – Exchange Server 2007 Pre-Conference Session and Keynotes
Today I worked as a proctor in the pre-conference instructor-lead session on Exchange Server 2007. My time was spent learning more than helping, but I managed to answer a few questions. My team mate and partner here at TechEd, Harold Wong, answered many more.
The evening really represented the kick-off to TechEd, with the big Keynote talks given by Bob Muglia, Ray Ozzie, and Chris Capossela. A fun twist on the evening was the appearance of the Fox television show “24” cast member Mary Lynn Rajskub really playing up her role as everybody’s favorite ultra-geek, Chloe O’Brian.
Coolest demo I saw today:
Example of the Virtualized Server re-provisioning via MOM (or SCOM).
Funniest thing I heard today:
“…and in Exchange 2007, you will no longer need WINS for anything.”“Really?”“Really.”“No.. I mean, REALLY?”“Really REALLY.”
Tomorrow I’m going to attend a few sessions, play with a few HOLs, visit the Exhibit Hall, and tomorrow night I have a shift in the TLC (Messaging Area) from 5–9pm.
Mary was on Jay Leno not to long ago. She was really funny and dressed very nicely. :)
