Well it’s been a while since I was last at TechEd. IT was 1998 in fact, in Nice, but enough said of that! So here I am as a speaker this time! Who let him in I can hear you say. However, enough of all that. I guess by the time you read this all the announcements during Soma’s keynote will be old hat to most by now but here are the ones that sparked my imagination.
MSDN goes Web 2.0 and user generated content with the introduction of a promised two-way wiki!
Patterns & Practices will start delivering Blueprint Software + Services building block patterns.
The Ms Sync Framework CTP will introduce key support around offline and peer 2 peer networking.
VS08 split screen working between the browser design surface and the underlying HTML code.
Ajax enablement of ASP.NET controls looks pretty compelling (as long as you stay within the limits of the control I’d imagine).
Popfly explorer supporting search and publishing between ASP and Popfly
Matt, great session on Disruptive IT and S plus S.
TechEd 08... Is that a typo? We're still '07, aren't we? :oP
