Tech Ed 2008 to go deeper

Tech Ed 2008 to go deeper

This year’s Microsoft Tech Ed will put the spotlight on a number of new technologies including Essential Business Server, the Stirling security suite, version two of Silverlight and Internet Explorer 8.

Wellington-based developer advisor Darryl Burling says it has ensured more in-depth sessions in this year’s agenda – a response to previous attendee feeback.

“This year we’ve made a conscious effort to balance the introduction sessions with ‘deep dives’,” Burling says.

Among this year’s speakers are US-based developer division senior program manager, blogger and podcaster Scott Hanselman, security evangelist Matt Heller also from Microsoft Corp, security strategist Steve Riley and Microsoft Australia’s Lee Hickin.

Keynote speaker Amit Mittal will also shed more light on LiveMesh, Microsoft’s SaaS computing platform for storage, synchronisation, P2P communication and newsfeeds, which uses the same API for the client and the cloud.

In addition, the Voice of the Customer sessions offer partners and customers the chance to share technology application stories. These will feature HP and Provoke, along with Trade Me, Xero, Transit, Rakon, Fly Buys and others.

The focus for this year’s women’s dinner has changed from last year’s Women in Technology-organised event to Geek Girl dinner with a technical emphasis.

Tech Ed runs from 1-2 September in Auckland.
