TechEd 2005 is coming, and guess who's going to be there!?
Well, I'm not certain that I'm going yet per se, but my "camping my manager's office with placards of hope" campaign is sure to pay off eventually.
I really enjoyed attending last year's Tech.Ed in Canberra (my first) - it was a great way to get out amongst it, address a bunch of questions and generally bounce ideas around with other technology professionals. This year, I'm keen to do it all again, only in a warmer climate (I love the cold, but I wouldn't knock back the Gold Coast).
Kleefie's been blogging about Tech.Ed registration and session content already.
I'm waiting for the little "I'll Be There!" hyperlink panels in convenient blog margin sizes to show up for this year. In the meantime, I suggest someone puts together a Tech.Ed 2005: The Eye Of Hugh Grant panel instead.
Freaky resemblance (at least when I've carved it down to the bit that resembles our banner). Ooh.
The two-minute details again:
