Evan’s TechEd 2007 Wrapup

I realized this week that all of the sessions (and video recordings of each session — I didn’t even realize they were recording ALL of the sessions!) are available online.

The first Exchange breakout session this morning served as a bit of an “Exchange 2007 Keynote” talk, with our General Manager Terry Myerson doing the delivery. He covered E2k7’s features and characteristics end-to-end in 75 mins, and had a couple of us help out with demos to dig in on a few areas (Unified Messaging,…
