Going to TechEd!

Microsoft’s biggest technical conference – TechEd – is taking place next week in Orlando, and I’ll be there. This will be the first conference I’ve attended since TechEd 1998 in Orlando, when SQL Server 7.0 was the “next big thing.” I’ve been working at many of Microsoft’s big conferences for the past few years, including TechEd, PDC, Mix and TechReady, but it’s been almost 10 years since I’ve been going without work waiting for me. On one side, it should be a lot of fun, being able to attend sessions and hang out with the product group members in the lounges, but on the other side, it already feels a little lonely.

In any event, I’ve got all of the interesting-looking BI sessions added to my schedule, so expect me to be blogging when possible throughout the week.


About ssimagine

My name is Matthew Roche, and I am a Senior Program Manager with the SQL Server product group at Microsoft. I work on Master Data Services and Data Quality Services, and have previously worked on SQL Server Integration Services. Although I work for Microsoft and will be posting on technical topics, I want to stress that this is a personal blog, and any opinions posted here are mine and mine alone. I built my career around SQL Server and Microsoft technologies for well over a decade before I joined Microsoft as an employee, and I plan on using this blog to share my personal experience and opinions. They may well be shaped by my experience on the SQL Server team, but they’re still mine, and not that of Microsoft, disclaimer, disclaimer, etc., etc..
