TechEd 2013 Survival Guide

Odds are fairly good that at least some of you reading this will be attending Microsoft TechEd 2013 in New Orleans this week. I’ll also be there with a number of Petri IT Knowledgebase contributors and writers, including Aidan Finn, Phoummala Schmitt, Peter De Tender, and Simon Bisson. While what Microsoft will be announcing at the show is still a tightly guarded secret, there’s plenty of news about TechEd to share.

For starters, be sure to stop by the Microsoft Server and Cloud Blog, which provides 11 tips on how to get the most out of TechEd. Microsoft’s Channel 9 also has a handy TechEd FAQ that answers most common questions about the event.

If you can’t make it to TechEd this year, you can still watch select TechEd sessions online for free, and even stream Microsoft VP Brad Anderson’s Monday morning TechEd keynote. You should also check out our TechEd 2013 photo galleries on Facebook and Google+, as we’ll be posting photos from the conference during the show.

One of the best reasons to attend TechEd this year was just announced by Microsoft a few days ago, so this won’t help people who weren’t able to make the trip this year. As part of a “special Surface offer for TechEd attendees” promotion, Microsoft will be selling the Microsoft Surface RT w/64GB for $99.99 and the 128GB Surface Pro for only $399.99 onsite at TechEd via the Microsoft Retail Store.
