TechEd 2006 End

Last 6 days was absolutly wonderful. There was so much to learn during tech ed and I did my best to learn as much I can. I also got chance to talk to experts and Microsoft people to talk about specific senarios.

Lunch with Steve who is the core team member of the DotNetNuke was good. Discussion with him gave a clear understanding about DotNetNuke future plans and some of thier current deficalties in getting right people for their team. I wish that everything will be fine and DNN team will continue to be the best .NET open source comunity.

I hope learning in tech ed will greatly enhance our team future planning to make our company compitant in the market.

TechEd 2006 Started

Tech Ed has started now. I attended pre-confrence seminar on web services which was excellant and I wish I could attended other seminars as well. After CDAC I never thought that I need any traning becuase in CDAC they teach us how to learn new tech our self. But Aaron covered this wide topic so well and I wish I can attend few more training like this so that I can learn things in one days which I normaly learn in few months. Good job aaron. You can brows his blog at http://pluralsight.com/aaron and download todays presentation and demo code.
Key note was facinating and for me it was one of the biggest event I ever attended. Being a MSDN subscriber and having IE homepage set to MSDN I knew about most of the anouncement they made but it was interesting to see a integrated big picture of all the new products and understand the Microsoft vision behind them.
I have some photoes and vedio which I will upload later this week and keep posted my experiance, learning and links.

Jay Kimble wrote many artcles on ATLAS like Atlas: Starting to grasp control development... and How to Add Atlas to an existing site which has a nice walkthrough of the configuration steps you'll need to go through for an existing ASP.NET 2.0 app before you can start dropping Atlas controls on your pages.
