Tech.Ed 2010 Australia

There’s one week to go before I fly to QLD for Microsoft’s Tech.Ed conference on the sunny Gold Coast. Lets face it, in terms of places to do business, there’s plenty of worse places in the world. Tech.Ed is a 4 day conference designed to be a single place to showcase Microsoft’s existing and upcoming technologies and services to around 2,500 attendees. Tech.Ed 2010 Australia runs from the 24th – 27th of August.

This year Windows Phone 7 will be on display, this will be the first opportunity for public to get hands on with development hardware. Until now its only been very select developers who’ve been given development hardware, the rest of WP7 fans have had to rely on the software emulator in the development tools.

This year I’ll be attending as media which means I’ll be interviewing Microsoft personnel from different aspect of the business. If you have any questions you’d like answered, then please leave a comment and I’ll be sure to ask it. Along with interviews I’ll also be attending some sessions, attending the media dinner and writing a bunch of posts for the site so be sure to check techAU.tv frequently during Tech.Ed.

Attendee gift

Crumpler Bag

This year attendees will receive a free Crumpler Messenger bag that will accommodate a 13” laptop. Last year attendees received a HP Netbook, that was obviously an exceptional gift in the height of the Netbook hype cycle. Years prior to that attendees received Targus backpacks. Given that a lot of attendees are repeat customers, there’s only so many bags a person needs.
