Tech Ed Europe content planning has started. If you want to be there, you can already start by locking these dates:

• Tech Ed Developers: 5 – 9 November 2007

• Tech Ed IT Forum: 12- 16 November 2007


My interest is obviously mostly the Developer event which will be bigger and beter than ever before. I was the overall technical content owner the last two years. This year I will jointly taking on that role together with David Webster. Check out his blog to find out more about the current thinking around shaping the tracks: http://blogs.msdn.com/davewebster/

Early thoughts I feel comfortable about... We will grow and offer even more sessions (I expect 20% more). We will offer the best of the PDC. In short, PDC (Los Angeles) will offer a view on what's a head of us 18 months and more and Tech Ed will help you with your job today and also help you prepare for what's coming in the near future. We will fight to offer some 20 sessions covering the highlights of the event.

Registration will only go live mid May but until you can already start influencing content. Please leave comments on my or Dave Webster's blog.
