TechEd Australia and New Zealand done and dusted

Well, TechEd in Australia and New Zealand have come and gone again already this year. Congrats to the content owners Andrew Coates and Darryl Burling for their efforts again this year and for organising good shows.

I had a really busy week as I was teaching a SQL 2k8 for developers precon on Monday and Tuesday, then had to travel to New Zealand on Tuesday night, just for the day. I got into the hotel about 1am, woke up and did my session at 10:45, another one at 2:20pm and then raced out of the venue into a cab and back to the airport to go back to Sydney. I did my session at TechEd Australia on Thursday.

The tight schedule meant that I didn't get as much time as normal to catch up with people at either event this year. I think the outcome was ok though. I was very excited to make Darryl's Kings of TechEd list, (particularly given my lack of sleep) but I'm always mindful of just how good the people further up that list are. It was great to see Scott Hanselman come down under to present this year and on anyone's measure, Steve Riley is always the King of TechEd locally.

I do want to make a particular shout out to Andrew Coates for organising the "Internal TechEd" this year where we got to do some dry runs of our presentations, in conjunction with Steve Herzberg from NRG Solutions. I have no doubt at all that the session I did at TechEd Australia was better for their efforts. I've commented before that I'm always amazed when speakers are offered such sessions and don't take advantage of them.

Next similar events I have coming up are TechEd Hong Kong and TechEd Developers in Barcelona. If you are at one of these events, please come and say hello.
