TechEd USA is coming up in June, and I'm presenting a couple of times and working the booths. If you're going to be there, make sure you stop by and say hello!
You might have to do presentations in your role, whether it is within your group as the DBA/Developer or to the business or management. It's interesting the amount of time you have to spend getting your presentation ready - I do a lot on the weekends to get set up for those. In fact, I present almost every week, whether that's internal within Microsoft or to user groups and conferences. It keeps me on my toes!
In case you're headed to TechEd - and I highly encourage you to do so - make sure you get the most out of your trip. I found a great link here that you can use to get ready.
