TechEd 2011 – What To See, Where To Go For Cloud Data Services
[This article was contributed by the SQL Azure team.]
TechEd is next week! May 16-19 to be exact, in Atlanta. Unfortunately I won’t be there - I was at InterOp earlier this week in Vegas (I’ll send a recap of that in the next few days) and I’ll be sitting this one out to catch up on some work and to start work on an idea for a cloud application that I’ve been thinking about for a while.
My colleague, Tharun Tharian, will be there so I encourage you to say hi if you see him. He’ll be joined by the SQL Azure, DataMarket, and OData engineering teams delivering the latest on the respective services and technologies, and also manning the booth to answer your questions. You’ll find them hanging out at the Cloud Data Services booth if you want to chat with them during the conference.
For those of you going, below are the SQL Azure and OData sessions that I encourage you to check out the sessions listed below – either live or over the web. I encourage you to attend either Quentin Clark or Norm Judah’s foundational sessions right after the keynote to learn more about how to bridge on-premises investments with Windows Azure platform, and how SQL Server “Denali” and SQL Azure will work together in both the services offered, and updates in the tooling and development experience. You may even hear some new announcements about SQL Azure and other investments in cloud data services.
Enjoy the conference!
