Whew !!! What a location to have TechEd !!! I just got back from the TechEd Sri Lanka tour and am really excited to say it was amazing. Even though I had a tough lineup of back to back sessions with about 5 Sessions in the database track, I really loved each and every topic myself. Having said that I was running cold and fever for most part of the stay. But, SODA, XML & CLR Best Practices, SQL Server 2005 Tools, SSIS, Security in SQL Server 2005 were the topics I had to take. (Personally) except SODA which I did as per the plan of using the PPT way of talk, I resorted to the free flow mode for rest of the topics. Because I could sense that most of the attendees were not fluent / exposed to SQL Server 2005 very much. So I used this as opportunity to talk about the basics, architecture and the details of the topics in discussion.
Overall, I presume the ratings were also good :) !!! More importantly I was satisfied talking to people in general after every session. Nevertheless the TechEd Party on Thursday evening was a blast with many gifts for the participants including XBox series, bags and even a trip to Bangkok. The organizers were really professional in their approach and my hats off to their efforts.
Hoping to meet the people in future TechEd’s too.
