So, TechEd South Africa started today. So far it’s been fun. As usual for the local TechEd events, the sunday was the opening keynote and a nice party. Some points that struck me during the keynote:
- Microsoft is heavily pushing the virtualisation technologies, including Hyper-V
- The application virtualisation looks fantastic for large corporations
- Silverlight 2 looks very cool
- Still no release date for SQL Server 2008
I have nothing particularly technical, just a couple pictures of the opening party.
