PFE Sessions At Tech Ed 2013 and The Krewe



AskPFEPlat is in the process of a transformation to the new Core Infrastructure and Security TechCommunity, and will be moving by the end of March 2019 to our new home at (hosted at Please bear with us while we are still under construction!

We will continue bringing you the same great content, from the same great contributors, on our new platform. Until then, you can access our new content on either as you do today, or at our new site Please feel free to update your bookmarks accordingly!

Why are we doing this? Simple really; we are looking to expand our team internally in order to provide you even more great content, as well as take on a more proactive role in the future with our readers (more to come on that later)! Since our team encompasses many more roles than Premier Field Engineers these days, we felt it was also time we reflected that initial expansion.

If you have never visited the TechCommunity site, it can be found at On the TechCommunity site, you will find numerous technical communities across many topics, which include discussion areas, along with blog content.

NOTE: In addition to the AskPFEPlat-to-Core Infrastructure and Security transformation, Premier Field Engineers from all technology areas will be working together to expand the TechCommunity site even further, joining together in the technology agnostic Premier Field Engineering TechCommunity (along with Core Infrastructure and Security), which can be found at!

As always, thank you for continuing to read the Core Infrastructure and Security (AskPFEPlat) blog, and we look forward to providing you more great content well into the future!


Hey y’all, Mark here with a real quick post. For our readers that are at Tech Ed 2013 in New Orleans (home of everyone’s favorite X-Men Gambit). We got several PFEs delivering sessions that you should check out if you get the chance. Make sure you go up to them after the session and tell them AskPFEPlat sent you. All these sessions should be the deep content our readers are use to so take good notes. Let us know in the comments which ones you attended.

Also if this is your first year at Tech Ed or you are a Tech Ed grey beard make sure you get involved with “The Krewe”. They are a great group of folks that are super friendly and sharp. When I was a Tech Ed n00b I met up with some of them randomly and they really helped me make the most of my Tech Ed experience. If you are looking for a community to get involved with, start with them. A few of us here at AskPFEPlat even worked with the leader of The Krewe on some secret ADFS stuff so you know that means they are legit. Read more about them here and you can thank me later.

Enjoy Tech Ed 2013 everyone.
