You may or may not know (or care 🙂 )but I get the privilege of running the TechEd content for 2006. Planning has already started with content submissions being received and fed into the planning process. I posted a call for papers for our conference here.
But let me give you a bit of the scoop of whats happening lately with it...
As you probably know its at the Sydney Convention Centre on the 23rd to the 25th August. I was in Sydney on Wednesday to look at the venue - its gigantic! For those of you who went to TechEd 2005 on the Gold Coast and remember the size of the exhibition area....imagine that....doubled in size!! All the breakout rooms are bigger so we wont have the session capacities max'ing out this time too.
We're planning for 10 tracks at present plus the cabana ones like last TechEd - big focus at Vista, Office 12 and the associated servers like SharePoint etc, Longhorn Server, Exchange 12 and so on. If theres anything you specific want to see then let me know!!
As Big Kev used to say...Im excited....:)
