And here we are, just a week away from Microsoft TechEd 2010, India happening at the cyber city Bangalore.image

It’s always been an excitement moment for TechEd in India. Last year we had TechEd India was held at Hyderabad and the response was amazing. During the tough times our teams had organized the event and set the benchmark.

I am particularly very much excited because I am presenting at TechEd 2010. Over the last few months after last TechEd, I have been seen enjoying the journey of delivering sessions for various Microsoft events, that includes Virtual TechDays, Community TechDays, New Efficiency Launch Events.

The second track is Windows Server track, here I will be talking about Group Policy Improvements in Server Platform.
