I can’t wait to come back to these two great cities – in particular, my wife and I visited Madrid for a week back in 1998, and it remains one of our all-time favorite vacations. In fact, after living in Puerto Rico for two years in the late ‘80s, I still speak fluent Spanish. Me encanta España!
Also: To better fit the needs of each individual attendee, this year there are
nine learning tracks
to choose from, covering topics like Data Platform & Business Intelligence, Modern Datacenter, Windows Azure or Windows Client & Access Management. I’ve included below some information provided by the TechEd events team that has been put together to help you make the most of your time in New Orleans or Madrid.

The Schedule Builder:
One great tool available to help you get the most out of TechEd is the schedule builder (
). There, you can sort the more than 400 sessions and 200 hands-on labs to build a customized learning experience. Take advantage of a deep discount and sign up for one of Microsoft’s on-site certification exams: registered TechEd attendees receive 50% off the regular price (
) and have access to study halls, exam prep sessions and Microsoft Certified Trainers.
Maybe this is your first time attending TechEd and you’re not sure where to begin? The Channel 9 discussion forums for both
have you covered. The forums are a great opportunity to engage with the TechEd community and get involved. From event-day tips, FAQs, or attendees just looking to travel with someone from the same part of the world, you can get great feedback in the forum.
Peer-to-peer interaction is what makes TechEd such a special event. It’s the best opportunity for you to connect – and reconnect – with YOUR peers across industries and around the world. Make sure to explore the TechExpo and get the latest information from Microsoft and our exhibitors and sponsors. Exchange ideas with other attendees and get personalized answers to your burning questions. And of course, don’t forget the closing party where you can unwind after your busy week and meet with colleagues and friends!
