My first TechEd Australia presentation!

I wish I had a lot more time to spend at TechEd... the dreadful thing was due to existing customer work commitments, I had to fly into Canberra Thursday, give my presentation on Realising Service Oriented Architecture, and fly out! I didn't even have enough time to chat with all my fellow architect friends, my former colleagues from CSIRO, or to meet and greet many of Frank's developer friends. To the people that came up to me after my presentation, I'm sorry I seemed really distracted - and didn't answer many of your questions properly - well I had a 6:30pm flight to catch to come back to Sydney 🙁 if any of you are reading this out there - please do not hesitate to fire me your questions, and I shall endeavour to answer them properly!

Anyway, so that was my first TechEd presentation as a Microsoft Employee, and that was really fun. To have the chance to meet 200 or so of you out there, and to share with you something I'm really passionate about - ARCHITECTURE!

    Hi Anna, that is really one busy schedule you have there. Flying from one state to another and back all in the space of not very long.

    Well, there’s always next year for Tech-Ed. I suppose looking at this comment you were probably expecting some form of response in regards to your presentation. I’m sure it went well, but I wasn’t there, so can’t comment on it! I’m sure sooner or later somebody else from the dev community who attended would give you a good response though 🙂

    [Side Note: Maybe next year i’ll actually be able to make it to Tech-Ed :)]

    I really enjoyed your talk at TechEd. It would be good to have a link to some of the papers you mentioned in it, though. I found the Entity Aggregation one (which is excellent), but it was difficult because I could remember the name of it!

    Hi Anna,

    Congratulations! You did a great work on TechEd. Although there is only little code in your talking (You did warn about it in the beginning of your talk), it changed my mind – I used to use method-centric interface in service design.

    Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us.
