Techdays 2008 – Ghent Belgium – {Hero} – review

10:21 am in Uncategorized by mikeresseler

Here's my review of the Techdays 2008 that took place in Ghent this year. The short version :-)

Day1: the launch

I hosted the SQLUG booth and did some chitchat with other communityleaders and members, some customers and some friends…

Day 2 : Techdays01

taking the bus to the location i heard people talking about the session Frederik Vandeputte delivered the day before, saying it was one of the best sessions they ever attended. Great to hear that all the work Frederik puts in his presentations is noticed by the attendees…

I hosted the SQLUG booth and attented a great session from Bart de Smet about Powershell 2.0. Great speaker and a very nice session. Can't wait for 2.0….

Day 3 : Techdays02

Started the day with a fantastic session by Kurt Roggen on Group Policies. Discovered lots of new things I didn't know (the coolness of RSAT and that you allready can use it against a W2K3 environment). The session was delivered very good and I think i wasn't the only one that wished Kurt could speak for another half a day or so about this topic. Too little time to cover all the cool things…

Second session was by Edwin Yuen about SCVMM. As one of my current projects involves rolling out this software I discovered not that many new things. But it was nice to see that even some very biased Vmware dudes liked what they saw…

Third session i attended was about SCDPM by Jason buffington (I'm also rolling out this software @ customers). Nice session and an overall good overview. Had a good "afterchat" with Mr Buffington that solved some of my problems I was encountering.

the last session I attended was the Hyper-V overview by Edwin Yuen. Nice session but too bad it was more of a marketing session….

The day ended with a nice lunch together with the SQLUG coremembers

Anyway, a nice couple of days, saw many friends, a nicely filled goodiebag 😉 and no XBOX 360 for me :-(
