TechEd is over, and I’m starting to get back into being home.  I think I’m still on Boston time, so I was up at 5:00 this morning, but other than that it’s coming together.

I think my two biggest takeaways from TechEd, as compared to the last time I went (2003) are that there were way more women at TechEd (good) and the inconsiderate cell phone use was at an all time high (bad). 

Other key learnings:

  • the food was terrible
  • the TLC concept was much cooler than the “cabanas” last time
  • it’s very easy to write good tooling in VS 2005 + GAT + DSL
  • WCF and WF rock

I had a great time meeting new people, and it was very entertaining standing in the shadow of the great man. :-)
