Microsoft TechEd Review

Lets begin with my Microsoft TechEd review.  This is day one.  I plan (time permitting) to write a quick review every day until the conference closes.

Disclaimer: If you don’t know, I work for VMware in the vCloud Hybrid Service Business Unit.  You will not find anything in this article that is in any way detrimental to VMware or its services.  If your looking for that, sorry. Right, now thats out the way, lets talk about the day, and provide an intro to my later posts.
