This year's TechEd conference was the usual blend of good solid technical information, however, it was not as good as last year's conference.
Microsoft's decision to split the conference into two successive weeks causes a problem for people in the following roles in my opinion:
- Architects and Technical Leads
- Technical Project Managers
- "Jack of multiple trades" Resources
Unfortunately, I fit one or more of those categories. While I wanted information about development, .NET, and MOSS development, there was a whole long more that I wanted from the admin side that was not there that could have been very helpful for people in these roles.
