TechEd 2013 Recap

Here’s a recap of some of the things we noticed at TechEd 2013 in New Orleans, where two of our trainers, Don Jones and Greg Shields, were presenting:

  • People are excited about virtualization and automation.

  • Windows Server 2012 is going to have a major impact on the industry.

  • People think that Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 will provide them with new opportunities to be more efficient and offer them more flexibility.

The meet and greet sessions with Don and Greg had great turnouts. A lot of people came up to our booth to tell us how much they enjoyed hearing Don and Greg speak at the event.
