Arrived at Microsoft TechEd 2007 in Orlando, FL and first shot of the Secret Server 3.0 booth

We arrived in sunny Orlando this morning after meeting at Reagan Airport around 5am – needless to say that everyone was a little tired but there was definitely excitement in the air. We were greeted by the sign for TechEd right in the Orlando airport … nice touch.

Thycotic has a good showing at TechEd this year – we have two booth staff and two developers attending sessions (this is also our first year with a booth at TechEd to showcase Secret Server). I will not be attending sessions this year but rather will be talking to attendees and other vendors on the Exhibitor floor.

The Orange County Convention Center is an amazing building – simply huge and some interesting architecture. After some aimless wondering we finally found the entrance and got our registrations complete. Then it was on to find the Secret Server booth (#946) on the Exhibitor floor. The Freeman folks had done a great job and the rental gear and booth backdrop were already in place. Now it was on to understanding the power requirements and getting the machines set up with Secret Server 3.0. Then tragedy struck … during the shutdown of one of the machines, it started installing updates right as the power cord was pulled. Turns out that Windows is right when it says not to power off the computer during updates … it is now toast with some weird kernel error and won’t boot. We will have to reinstall the operating system on this machine to get it working again.

Here is a picture of the booth as it is starting to come together.

If you haven’t tried Secret Server yet, stop by our booth (#946) to see the ‘about to be released Secret Server 3.0’.
