Tech Ed: Registrations slower in 2009

Tech Ed: Registrations slower in 2009

When last year’s Tech Ed conference sold out quickly, Microsoft made plans to increase capacity at its keynote developer event.

However, speaking this week to go, Microsoft’s director of developer and platform strategy, Scott Wylie, said tickets were still available to the Auckland event and that additional capacity is unlikely to be needed.

Tech Ed kicks off on Monday and runs for three days.

Wylie says Microsoft now expects around the same number of attendees as last year, about 2100. He says he is happy with that result given the economic environment and a drop-off in numbers of up to 40 percent at some other ICT industry events.

Wylie says Windows 7 will be the centrepiece of Tech Ed 2009. A session on developing for the platform is the most popular in terms of bookings, closely followed by one on Microsoft’s Azure cloud platform, to be delivered by Intergen’s Chris Auld.
