There’s no doubt that in June, Tech Ed North America and TechEd Europe are the places to be to get the greatest download of technical information and training out there.  However, we know that not everybody can make it, but the good news is that even if you aren’t able to attend, you can still follow along and take part in the experience from the comfort of your own office, home, or even your datacenter! 

In fact, here are 3 things you can do to keep up on the TechEd news and conversations from wherever you may be:

1.       Follow the conversations on Twitter.  If you’re particularly keen on Server-Cloud-Tools, jump onto your Twitter account and follow @MSCloud on Twitter or Microsoft Server and Cloud Platform on Facebook, where you’ll learn about event news, key sessions, and where you can catch replays of the sessions online. In addition, on Twitter you’ll want to follow @TechEd_NA (event hashtag #msTechEd), @TechEd_Europe (event hashtag #TEE13 ), and Microsoft Vice President and keynote speaker Brad Anderson at @IntheCloudMSFT. You can also read more from Brad on his blog here.
