Here is video blogcast entry number two from last year’s TechEd in Orlando.
On Monday, June 6th, Chris Henley and I were working in the Server Infrastructure area of the Hands-on-Labs. We volunteered to fix a lab that was broken (HOL163), so I thought I’d document our efforts on video.
As you’ll see, our efforts really didn’t result in a fixed lab. But it was a good learning experience nonetheless.
And another comment I should make also…
I really don’t want this video to leave you with the impression that the HOLs don’t work. They do. And they’re awesome. These folks who run the Hands-On-Labs are getting this process down really well. TechEd 2005 was the first time they used a whole new engine for driving these things, and they’ve used it over and over again at other conferences since. At our internal training conference TechReady 2 last January, for example, they ran these, and nearly all of them worked flawlessly.
