The night marked the deadline for submission to the session Birds-of-Feather. What is a BOF? A “Birds of a Feather” session is an open, moderated discussion on a topic judged as noteworthy to the conference attendees. “BOF” sessions represent a unique opportunity for you to engage in compelling technical conversations and exchange ideas on a variety of topics with your fellow attendees. Each of the participants (if the session will be selected) may lead the panel discussion with other attendees. So far the sessions have been reported quite a lot, so I believe that everyone becomes an interesting discussion for themselves – more information soon.
Thus, the remaining four weeks to begin the largest technology conferences in Europe, Microsoft Tech-Ed Europe 2010. This year between 8th and 12th November, the organizers have prepared more than 640 technical sessions, grouped in seventeen thematic paths:
- Application Server & Infrastructure
- Business Intelligence
- Cloud Computing & Online Services
- Database Platform
- Developer Tools, Languages & Frameworks
- Development Practices
- Office & SharePoint
- Security, Identity & Access
- Unified Communications
- Web Platforms
- Windows Client
- Windows Embedded
- Windows Phone
- Windows Server
Within the Messe Berlin will gather about 7,000 participants from across Europe (and elsewhere). And during the conference will be able to meet quite a large team from Poland, including: Springboard – Grzegorz Tworek (Enterprise Security MVP); Sessions – Paula Januszkiewicz (Enterprise Security MVP), Maciej Pilecki (SQL Server MVP), Tomasz Onyszko, and in other places – Łukasz Foks (Windows Desktop Experience MVP), Łukasz Grala (BI SQL Server MVP) and probably some other people, sorry I forgot.
I myself I had the pleasure to work at the conference at booth GITCA (Global IT Community Association). Are You ready to meet us?
