Tech Ed. Need I say more?
For the last two years I have missed out on going to Tech Ed New Zealand because I had foolhardily scheduled the births of my son and daughter to coincide with the biggest Microsoft event in New Zealand.
This year I am finally free, with no impending births, to attend this big event in Auckland.
Except for one thing.
I am no longer sure if I want to be away from my family for two night and basically three days.
I have been to Tech Ed twice, both times I was foot loose and fancy free. Now, I have other priorities. It is a real shame the conference is never held in Wellington or at least has never been held here in my short memory.
Another conference I do enjoy which is held in Wellington is WebStock. I managed to attend this five day event two years ago and it was great. Especially since it didn’t involved flying to Auckland. Hopefully I get to attend again in the future, perhaps even next year.
In the meantime, Tech Ed is still my favourite and perhaps as the time draws near I will be more keen to actually attend.
Did I mention the food is great? ;)
