Registrations for Microsoft Tech Ed New Zealand 09 are now open at www.microsoft.co.nz/teched

This year’s event is shaping up to be the best one yet and will feature a great line-up of speakers from New Zealand and around the world.  Tech Ed 09 will be held from Monday 14 September to Wednesday 16 September at SKYCITY Convention Centre in Auckland.

A limited number of discounted early bird tickets will be available for the first 600 who register. Last year’s event sold-out in a matter of weeks so if you’re thinking about heading along, sign-up now to avoid disappointment

Tickets went on sale at 9AM this morning and as of midday we have already sold 56% of early bird tickets and 14% overall.

Tech Ed 09 will feature 11 tracks on the latest Microsoft innovations, with sessions targeted at the specific interests of developers and IT pros. In particular:

  • IT Pros will get new insights into Windows Server 2008 R2, Windows 7, hosting, virtualisation, and reducing IT costs
  • Developers will get hands-on time with new tools for security, learn about maximising deployments and the Azure Services Platform, as well as building rich web and client applications, and much more.

Tech Ed 09 is a great opportunity to up-skill on the Microsoft platform and network with others in the IT community, plus anyone who registers for the event gets a free ticket to the Tech Fest party.
