Kevin’s TechEd 2006 Diaries – Day 1

Bob Muglia delivering the KeynoteDay 1 – Exchange Server 2007 Pre-Conference Session and Keynotes

Today I worked as a proctor in the pre-conference instructor-lead session on Exchange Server 2007.  My time was spent learning more than helping, but I managed to answer a few questions.  My team mate and partner here at TechEd, Harold Wong, answered many more. 

Chloe O'BrianThe evening really represented the kick-off to TechEd, with the big Keynote talks given by Bob Muglia, Ray Ozzie, and Chris Capossela.  A fun twist on the evening was the appearance of the Fox television show “24” cast member Mary Lynn Rajskub really playing up her role as everybody’s favorite ultra-geek, Chloe O’Brian. 

Coolest demo I saw today:

Example of the Virtualized Server re-provisioning via MOM (or SCOM).

 

Funniest thing I heard today:

“…and in Exchange 2007, you will no longer need WINS for anything.”
“Really?”
“Really.”
“No.. I mean, REALLY?”
“Really REALLY.”

Tomorrow I’m going to attend a few sessions, play with a few HOLs, visit the Exhibit Hall, and tomorrow night I have a shift in the TLC (Messaging Area) from 5–9pm.
