Another excellent year at TechEd! After all these years, I still enjoy the lengthy, opinionated and inebriated conversations over technologies, implementations, products, etc.
I did make it to a few interesting sessions and spoke to a few 'official' types about various things ASP.Net MVC, Velocity, Unity, Oslo, etc... The presentation I actually enjoyed the most was Andrew Connell's 'Don't be a Tool...' SharePoint dev talk...really good stuff from an outstanding presenter. I was just happy to hear someone actually tell developers to be developers again and quit whining...this could turn in to a <rant/>...I'll stop now.
As usual, the most interesting stuff happens after hours ;-P Every year I say I'm going to capture more evidence, but I always forget to take pictures...here's the few I ended up with this year. It was great to see all my old friends and meet quite a few new ones. I love all of you nerds. Big props to the Fl crew for organizing the ]inbetween[ event. And oh, btw, before I forget....SHAREPOINT NATION!!!

I've had a few people ask me over the last month about this...so here's the link. I guess more people are moving to VS 2008 now.
Here's how to 'fix' VSS2005 and VS 2008 :

I forgot to post this earlier, but Microsoft Virtual PC 2007 is a free download now. I've found this to be a nice way to test.
