OK..theres been lots of people asking about what TechEd AU and NZ will feature as an agenda. I think its important that at this time we show you exactly where we're up to!
Theres a couple of tracks that still arent quite finished yet - but are fairly close!
For those that saw Andrew Coates's post on the Stanski .NET list and was concerned that he only showed the tools portion...His track is just one of many tracks that has Developer content in it. This year we have deliberately mixed relevant developer and IT Pro in each track. Don't worry though about having to look in multiple places though...this year's CommNet is exactly what the US uses now (we never used this before) and we can dual code sessions to other tracks where they are relevant sessions to that track.
Heres all 10 tracks:
