Another reason to have multiple-monitors

The TechEd slides and video are now up!!  There are literally hundreds of sessions you can watch (the exact same ones that you would have been sitting through if you’d been there), and the powerpoint slides are available to download.  The slides look great in Keynote, although the site seems to have some issues with Safari.

I watched tons of the slides up after the PDC which had some amazing info about all the stuff that they were working on for Longhorn.  I would work on two monitors and would put the video feed up on the third.  I watched the overviews of all the new technologies (Avalon, Indigo and WinFS) and then watched in depth reviews of all the stuff that I was interested in.

This time I’m going to watch a lot of the Security , Developer Tools and Technologies and the Architecture talks since they interest me the most.  Then I’ll probably watch the high level talks for the other sections and see if there’s anything cool going on in those other areas.

  1. Where did you see the sessions at the url you exposed? I’ve visited all the categories in the page and there are no sessions to view or download…

  2. Miguel: I’m not sure what you mean. If I visit the link I get a page with many session tracks on it, like:

    Architecture, Business Productivity Solutions, Developer Tools, etc.

    If I click on "developer tools" i then get a huge listing of sessions like:

    DEV200 – (Featured Developer Session!) General Session: Managing the Software Lifecycle with Visual Studio 2005

    Speaker: Rick LaPlante

    DEV260 – Windows Forms: Overview of New Features and ClickOnce Deployment in Visual Studio 2005

    Speaker: Joe Stegman

    etc. etc.

    From those links I can directly download the powerpoint slides

    Or, i can click on the link and i’m presented with a slideshow with the voice over of the original speaker.

  3. It seemed to be related to my ie cache or something… i deleted it and now I can see all the sessions… thanks cyrus

    Hmm, it seems there is a problem with this link anyway. I watched those presentations last 2 days (excellent!), but now I get HTTP 404 when accessing that url. What’s wrong? When I type, it wants some kind of login information from me.

    Please, conjure them back, please! I know you can do it Cyrus.

  5. Marek: I’m actively investigating this. I’ll let you know more as soon as i know.
