Sneak Preview: TechEd North America in Atlanta Next Week

Microsoft TechEd North America 2011 banner

My 2011 SharePoint World Tour continues Monday as I wing my way to Atlanta for TechEd North America 2011.  I’ll be in Atlanta through Thursday and, as per usual, will be blogging as many SharePoint sessions at the conference as I can manage.  TechEd in Orlando was the first Microsoft conference I attended, just a couple of weeks after starting at Bamboo three years ago, and this year will mark my third TechEd, having also covered last year’s event in New Orleans. 

TechEd is unlike any other SharePoint conference in that … well, in that it’s actually not a SharePoint conference, but is instead a cavalcade of all things Microsoft, including in-depth sessions on a staggering array of topics and products, as well as onsite workshops, seminars, and Microsoft certification testing.  Not surprisingly, it’s possible at TechEd to follow an entire SharePoint track if you so choose, and that’s exactly what I’ll be doing next week.  For a glimpse into the TechEd coverage I’ll be providing, here’s a peek at the sessions that I’m currently considering covering:
