TechEd US is done for another year! As I mentioned before, we did a lot of stuff but still found time to chill by the pool a few times in the Speaker Hotel. This was my first US TechEd since leaving Microsoft last year so it was quite interesting seeing the organizational side of things from the outside. I was particularly pleased that my new Surviving Corruption – From Detection To Resolution session clinched a prestigious top-10 rating (#6) for the whole conference – look out for it at all the other conferences I’ll be at this year (next post today…)


Edit: Forgot to say – thanks to all those in the Olympia, WA User Group who came out yesterday to see us present the Surviving Corruption session!


We’ve already started posting scripts from our session demos (see the Past Conferences page) and I’m blogging detailed walkthroughs of my demos from the corruption session in my CHECKDB From Every Angle series. The online panel we did hasn’t been released yet on the TechEd Online site – I’ll blog when it is.


Now we’re off for a couple of weeks of real vacation – flying, diving, bird-watching, and best of all, not working!


I’ll leave you with my usual conference wrap-up… thanks to Carlos Santillana for the photos!
