Tech-Ed Wrap Up

All week the crack staff at Redmond have been bringing you the hottest news and analysis from Tech-Ed. It was an awesome show in Atlanta with probably about 10,000 attendees (just my conjecture). Here is a collection of our best stuff.

I am not big on keynotes and training sessions -- I spend most of my time yakking with readers and hubbubbing with third parties. I hung out with Lieberman, Scriptlogic, Blackbird, Veeam, Ultrabac, Odyssey, Neverfail and Idera -- just to name a few.

While Redmond had a booth at the show, our major emphasis was our annual vendor party (and each and every time it is a rager). Hundreds of Tech-Ed's best minds reduced their brain capacity at our open bar, which is where you learn the best stuff.

What third parties or third-party execs do you admire and why? Lay it on us at dbarney@redmondmag.com.
