TechEd 2005 – 3 strikes, I'm out!

TechEd is a great conference with loads of buzz, technology and people that make such events the place to be. Last year, I was able to give a presentation in the Development Cabanas on Test Driven Development with ASP.NET and helped out fielding technical questions in the same cabanas which gave me complimentary access to the conference!

This year, my efforts have been:

  1. 3 speaking proposals to TechEd USA – declined.
  2. 3 speaking proposals to TechEd Europe – declined.
  3. Offered to work as a Technical Expert in the Development Cabanas – declined.

Apparently the response from speakers and technical experts has been HUGE this year and I am sure it will be an even bigger event than last year.

Are you going to TechEd this year?
Why do you think it is even more popular than last year’s event?

    Probably not.
    ASP.Net v2 && VS.Net 2005 && Longhorn ( or take your pick), plain and simple.

    While I didn’t have that much, I struck out also.

    I’ll be there. Not sure, since I didn’t go last year. Are you going? If so, I’ll meet you there!

    No – I won’t be going plus we have a new project starting up which would have made the timing difficult anyway.

    Maybe PDC later this year?

    Sorry to hear that Jonathan. I struck out on my talk proposals as well (I had submitted 3 of them). The other stuff was a fluke.
