TechEd 2007 is well underway in Orlando, in the US (I wish I was there!) and already, there has been some cracking content already shown. So far, I've only had chance to watch the keynote by Bob Muglia, but I strongly recommend you watch it too. The video quality isn't the best - it's a little small on the webpage, but you can stream it and increase the size in Windows Media Player.
The video starts off with 7 minutes of top notch comedy, with Bob and Doc Emmett Brown (yes, THE Doc Emmett brown, and THE Delorean from the movies!) taking a light hearted swipe at some of the Microsoft Vision's of the future that really didn't materialise (at least, so far!) such as WinFS...It's definitely worth a watch, if only for Emmett trying to use voice control in the car...
Bob's keynote then takes shape, and covers aspects such as the Dynamic Systems Initiative, and IT’s evolution from an organizational cost center to a strategic asset and how you can make your mark by helping your IT department embrace its new role fueling growth and driving innovation. Some of the technologies to assist this evolution include the System Center of families, Server 2008 and Windows Server Virtualisation, all of which feature prominently, with quality demo's.
If you are short of time, and can watch only a few bits of the keynote (it's 1:30 minutes in total), skip along to 40:30 and watch Jeff Woolsey pop out a cracking 10 min demo of Server 2008, Windows Server Virtualisation and System Center working together in harmony to provide an efficient, easy to manage, pro-active infrastructure. For a full list of what Jeff covers, here it is:
And the "Quotes of the video" award go to, Bob and Emmett, for these beauties...
Emmett: "We've only got 5 minutes of time travel"Bob: "Why?"Emmett: "640k of RAM, I don't care what Bill Gates said back in 81, it's not enough!!"
Tell me about it! :-)
Enjoy the video!
