Off to TechEd 2008
I’m leaving tomorrow for TechEd 2008 in Orlando, FL. I’m excited about it since it’s my first developer conference that isn’t targeted at a very specific purpose (like Interact 2008 was). I’m looking forward to attending some good sessions, meeting some people I’ve only ever e-listened to, and spending some relaxing evenings with my wife who’s coming with to enjoy a little R&R away from the kids.
Unfortunately, we’ve been without power at our home since 10PM last Friday night due to storms and tornados. Not only is the power out in our area of the city, but a big tree fell on our specific power lines, ripping everything away from the house. So the weekend has been spent calling utility companies, contractors, waiting, and reading. Our family lives far away, so we’ve really appreciated our friends who have welcomed us into their homes, shared their meals with us, and let us type blog posts from their laptops. 😉 (Thanks Shawn!)
See you in Orlando!
