TechEd 2008, Orlando, Florida in June 2008


This just in: “…Microsoft is excited to announce the expansion of its largest annual technical conference. Tech·Ed U.S. is evolving from a one week conference to two separate back-to-back conferences: Tech·Ed U.S. 2008 Developers, June 3-6, and Tech·Ed U.S. 2008 IT Professionals, June 10-13, in Orlando, FL.”

So, one week for developers and one for IT pros, just like they’ve been doing in Europe. I think it is smart, not trying to be too many things to too many people. You can get all the first hand bits on www.microsoft.com/teched. You can also sign the Tech·Ed U.S. 2008 Guestbook, to get an automatic notice when registration opens. We’ll be there, as usual, with on site testing and what nots. More when June 2008 is not as far away as it is now.

    If I can possibly talk my bosses into it, (tuition plus T&E tends to be a hard sell sometimes) I will be there.

    Any plan to attend MMS 2008?  I hope the system center exams will be live at this point.  It will be cool to have a special exam night.  I am sure we will cross path at one of these events.

    Can anyone say what the registration fees will be? I’m not looking for an exact cost, just a ball park. I can’t find any info on it anywhere. Anyone know what the registration fees were for the one this year?

    ss, i think last years reg fee was 1,000+USD… But not sure. Anyone else know?

    SS, this is what an event owner reported (much more reliable than what I make up!!): "Last year the “tuition” was $1,795 (early bird) and $1,995 after April 15th.  Good chance the price will stay the same."
