TechEd 2008 started yesterday, although this year it is broken up into two parts. The first week is primarily aimed at developers, and the second week is imed at what Microsoft calls "IT Pro's", which means everyone who isn't a developer. That's kind of a tough call because I know many of us work on both sides of the fence - we sling a little code when we need to and we manage a system here and there. I plan to be at the second week, and I have two presentations on Friday. I'll blog the week when I get to sunny Florida.
