The TechNet Guy's Diary at TechEd 2006 - Day 2

On Day 2 of TechEd 2006 (in Boston), we were flooded with all the Hands-On labs, compelling breakout sessions, and this one big barnyard full of sales pitches left and right (otherwise known as the Expo Hall).  One shameless pitch I'd like to make is the TechNet booths.  Follow the signs to the "Community and Learning Resources" area at the Expo Hall...sorry, not as easy as the red paint and footprints of the Freedom Trail, but maybe this might help.

I asked a few attendees what TechNet provides for them, and most of them answered: Just the Knowledge Base articles.  And if they took part in the "TechNet Challenge" game (in a similar format as the TV Jeopardy!), they would have seen Wrong on the LCD display.

Being the generous guy that I am, I passed out a Cheat Sheet to all those who lined up to play the "TechNet Challenge" game.  What do you know...when it was their turn to play, they were seeing Correct on the LCD display, which means that they would receive a choice of t-shirts, caps, portable tools, or stress relief "squeezers."

Do you want to know my source for the Cheat Sheet?  Okay, here you go.  What's wrong with me...I'm just too generous today.  I've got to cut it out.  (As you can tell, I've got other issues)

  • Day 4 was a quieter day...except for the attendees who were still flooding the hallways of the Boston...
