Tech Ed Key Note

It's Monday morning now. Last night we found Bruce and went to the Key Note. It's was interesting at times, mostly when Mary Lynn Rajskub from 24 came on stage. Barry of course claims that was his idea. ;) We left part way through the Key Note. Hit a pub downtown and played a couple of games of pool accompanied by a few beers.

So far my impression of Tech-ed is not wonderful. I have attended PDC 3 times, but this is my first tech-ed. I'll be honest it's not developer centric enough. I have never cared about supporting servers, Share point, operations or anything even remotely related to these subjects. It's just not my thing. I am very happy there are people out there who do this. Had I known finding a session on development would be like finding an Irish man in the coffee shop next door to the pub. I might have given it a miss. It's only Monday and we are in Boston (my favorite US city) so it will be a good week. I'm sure there will be plenty of sessions where I will learn something.

At the moment I am sitting in a session on Reporting Services Report Builder. It's good. I have been meaning to play with this new part of the product in a while. Today I got a push in the right direction.
