Tracking the tracks at Tech Ed New Zealand


Quick tour around the Tech Ed New Zealand 2007 Marketplace and Microsoft MSDN discount tip

, posted: 13-Aug-2007 22:44

I am just going through the contents of my bag of goodies (well, more paper than goodies really), and I found this leaflet offering 20% discount on MSDN subscriptions.

All you have to do is buy Visual Studio 2005 with an MSDN Premium or MSDN Professional to get this discount. This is valid from 1st September 2007 through 30 November 2007.

Visit microsoft.co.nz/visualstudio from 1st September for details.

Back to the swag...

During my walk around the Marketplace today I got to talk to a lot of people, put faces to names and in general have a great deal of networking. What an incredible day it was.

I also heard someone from Unisys being called three times - he won an Xbox 360... But I think he didn't show up, because they then proceeded to call another name. Unlucky for one, lucky for another.

I stopped to talk to the guys at the Double-Take stand. I found this software a few months ago when investigating alternatives to keep the Geekzone SQL Server database up during a disaster, if needed. I forgot about it for a while, and just last week I was looking for the software again - I couldn't remember the name!

Today I was looking through the stands at the Tech Ed Marketplace, and here it was! I got a very good explanation on how it works, replicating MS SQL data and transaction logs, how it performs the failover and failback, and other fine features.

I also had a good insight into Content Beamer, a server printing solution that works with mobile devices and laptops.

Cheryl and Keith at Hyro gave me some of her time explaining their mobile capabilities.

And the coffee (thanks Ace!) was great!
