Back in Conference Land at TechEd

I just got back from Holland Thursday after speaking at SDC there, and now I am in Orlando to speak at TechEd. These things are nothing but fun, but man, the travel can get crazy.

I had a great time last night joining in with the crowd at the Party with Palermo, which evolved from a loosely organized geek dinner into a great gathering of speakers, RDs, MVPs, and attendees in the Peabody hotel restaurant and bar. Today there are a collection of overlapping events that I plan to try to attend portions of, including some MVP events, the INETA summit, and some of the pre-con sessions.

The rest of the week is already pretty packed. My breakout session is not until Friday, but I have a bunch of other things I am participating in / presenting as well:

Tuesday 7 Jun:

3:15-6:15 PM- proctoring Juval Lowy’s Instructor Led Lab (ILL) on Generics (DEV20/DEV20R)

Those are just the items that warrant an unchallenged block on my calendar. There are a ton of other events mixed in there as well to keep the week packed. I also need to get some more work done on my book this week getting the second half of the book up to date with Beta 2 and ready for Tech review, and also want to try to blog a few technical posts about stuff I am working on. Hmm, when is thattime expansion device going to be on the market??
