I know I have been a slacker when it comes to posting lately, but I have been on the road quite a bit of late and will finally have some time at home over the next 2 weeks and have some new topics that I should be posting about during that time.
As for DevTeach, SQLblog had a great presence at the SQLTeach part of the conference here in Montreal, including (in no particular order): Adam Machanic, Kevin Kline, Rick Heiges, Paul Nielsen, Roman Rehak (who was the SQLTeach Tech Chair), and yours truly, and soon to be blogging at SQLblog, James Luetkehoelter. I heard great things about my fellow SQLbloggers and was glad to get some time to catch up with them and a few other folks at the conference.
As for TechEd. I will be off to TechEd this year (June 4 - 8), and even doing a breakout session on XML in SQL Server 2005. I'll also be co-hosting an SQL Server 2005 XML Q&A session with Michael Rys from Microsoft. Very exciting!
I will be looking into migrating SQLblog to the latest version of CommunityServer (CS2007) in the coming months. With the change, we are also hoping to add some new features to the site. Some of the features we have been contemplating are articles, book reviews, and voting forums. No promises; but when my current project ends, I hope to have time to implement some of these features (assuming CS2007 makes it easy to do so).
Finally, if you are using the Windows Live Toolbar in IE, be sure to add the SQLblog custom button (found here) for quick access to the site and the latest posts!
