My Experience at Microsoft Tech-Ed 2011– 25th March 2011- Bangalore

Microsoft Tech-Ed is the premier technical and networking event for tech enthusiastic which is mainly focused on current and upcoming Microsoft technologies, tools, platforms and services. Tech-Ed India 2011 held at the The Lalit Ashok Hotel , Bangalore From 23rd –25th March 2011. I didn’t think that I will be attending the Tech-Ed 2011 this year as I had already been there at TechReady , Seattle and was busy with my other travel and some of project delivery. But, I finally managed a single day ( thanks to my manager and team mates )  for travel to Bangalore from Hyderabad to attend and meet community geeks over Tech-Ed.

I started from my home at 4 AM and took a early morning flight ( 6 AM ) from Hyderabad and reached to Bangalore Airport at 7.15 AM . Reached Hotel Lalit Ashok at 8.15 AM, I thought it was too early, but sorry, I was wrong, too many techies are already roaming around. I did my registration first and looking forward to meet with my friends. First person I met of there was Dhanajay Kumar ( We called him DJ ) , a Connected System MVP and one of my good friend. Then what, met one by one all of my MVP and community friends like Jacob Sebastian ( SQL Server MVP ) , Ranekua Prasad ( Expression Blend MVP) , Malleswar Reddy ( Mobile Apps MVP ) , Pinal Dave ( Microsoft Evangelist – SQL Server ) , Vijay Raj (Application Setup MVP ) .

While roaming around the venue got a chance to catch up with my great colleague Harish Ranganathan ( MS Web Developer Evangelist ) , Abhishek, Chinmay, Mehul who were there for last 3 days. I had a talk with them regarding their experience over past days.

It was time for Key Note session for Day 3. Keynotes speaker for Day 3  Jason Zander Corporate Vice President, Visual Studio . He is a great speaker and presenter, I have already attended couple of session from Jason  while I was in Seattle, he is always with his best. Had a blasting key notes for Tech-ED, day 3.

Once done with keynotes, met and discussed so many things on IE9 , Search Engine with many MVP friends Lohith, Anoop, Suprotim Agwarwal, Abishek Sur, Shravan, Pranav , Krishan

What else, much awaited session from Harish Ranganathan on “HTML 5 with VS 2010 SP1” and Deep Dive: MVC Controller Architecture By Chris Eargle. Harish  Session was awesome, where he explained about HTML 5 and what’s new with VS 2010 Service Pack 1 for HTML 5. Best part of the session was to many demos and very much interactive with very small small VS Tips and Tricks.

Best moment while at Tech-Ed

Had a nice discussion Technical Discussion with Annop Mahasudoon ( Client App Dev MVP ) and met with my one of my very good collage friend Abhsihk after more than 4 years .

Great thanks to Pranav and Shravan. They did a really great job by interviewing so many folks. Hope to share the video soon

And also distributed some gayan to Dhananjay  . DJ is good listener !!

What else, it was already 4.30 PM, I have had to leave for Airport for my flight back to Hyderabad. Left the venue with some great experiences. Back to Hyderabad at 8.30 PM .

It was an awesome and great to be there at Tech-Ed. Next time on awards will plan for 3 days with out any failure. Thanks to all of you !
