Today the Microsoft TechEd 2008 North America starts. What we traveled half around the globe to attend had finally begun. Monday was Pre-Conference day. I attended the “Deploying and Managing a System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Environment” with Wally Mead as speaker. He started by telling us that we properly wouldn’t be able to complete the content of the session within the 7 hours available for the pre-conference 🙂 During the first half of today’s pre-conference, we was continually disturbed by the noise from the KeyNote practice. Loud bongo drums, and a hysteric woman that were yelling, for literally hours,…

I knew yesterday was going to be exciting, but it went beyond my imagination. We left the Hampton Inn in Fort Lauderdale at 8 am. We drove south, heading for the Tamiami trail (route 41).The first stop was the “Shark Vally Visitor Center”. At the entrance we saw the first amazing animal. I have no idea what the turtle is called, but check out these pictures: At the parking lot we saw this little fellow: Baby aligators… Cute…! The adult aligators…   And a lot of amazing birds.   We arrived at the hotel in Orlando 10 pm last night.…

Yesterday was amazing… We actually managed to spend more than 9 hours of non-stop shopping. Not even my wife can beat that 🙂 We got a lot of cool stuff, and to a very good prize… When you live i Europe, almost everything is about 50% off.   Today we are heading for Orlando. We plan to drive through the Everglades National Park. The largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, visited by more than one million people each year. This is how our trip is planned, and hopefully we’ll arrive at our hotel in Orlando around 8 pm tonight.

Tomorrow I’m leaving for “TechEd North America IT Professionals” (IT Forum) in Orlando. One of the biggest Microsoft events in the world for IT Pro’s. This time my main focus will be on Configuration Manager 2007 R2, Windows Server 2008 Branch Office Senarios and Hyper-V (Apparently, they are ahead of schedule and there’s a whirlwind of rumours that Microsoft will launch it next week). One of the great things about TechEd is opportunity to meet with colleagues, customers, partners and friends. If you want to have a chat, coffee or a beer during the event just give me a call…
