TechEd NZ 2013 Wrapup

I’ve been tweeting up a storm over the last few days, picked up a few more followers. Yay! The last two days of TechEd went by in a blur. Unfortunately I (and Malcolm) got to spend waaaaaaaayyyyyyyy too much time on the phone with Prometric support, trying to get their software to work properly, but that’s a story for another day . . .

When I wasn’t doing that I saw a couple of good Exchange sessions by Scott Schnoll. I would highly recommend watching any of the presentations he does. He really understands Exchange well, and has a great knack for making the complex clear. I learned a great deal. I sat in on a few sessions that were reminders of “what not to do” when presenting. Here’s a hint guys: it’s really obvious when you haven’t prepared and practiced your demos.

My employer, Auldhouse sold out all of our exams, we had several attendees earn new certifications. So it was very successful from our point of view.

But best of all I got to catch up with some old friends. It’s always nice to catch up w/ Miguel and Dandy and Lohit and others. I also made some new friends, and got to be part of a great panel discussion on why its important to keep your skills and certs up to date. Some really interesting stuff came out of that.

But now it is done, and I am knackered. Time to go home and see my family again. 🙂

Hopefully I’ll see some of you there next year, if not sooner.

Cheers,
James
