Scott Spradlin Developer Community Enthusiast Conferences
TechEd 2008
So this year TechEd is divided into two weeks -- one focused on developers and one on IT Pros -- and I'm going as a representative of INETA. We'll have a spot in the community area. INETA is also a big force behind the BOF sessions. If you haven't been to one of those in the past, try to check them out this year.

Monday night is the traditional Party With Palermo. That's always a great place to catch up with a lot of familiar faces at these events. I'm also looking forward to the .NET Rocks hosted panel discussion ......

So after the User Group Management Summit was over, a bunch of us also attended ALT.NET. It's a free conference by developers held in the Open Spaces format. I never would have believed how successful that format actually is unless I experienced it myself. I was pretty impressed and enjoyed several of the sessions I was able to attend. Touched bases with tons of friends, and even met some new ones. I especially enjoyed Scott Hanselman's session "Are we innovating or just porting?" Check out my buddy ......
