Wow really...this was my first TechEd but I was looking forward to getting the TechNet subscription from colleagues that mentioned they have received it in the past. A small let down, but not going to let it ruin my TechEd experience. Maybe they will surprise us with something else like mentioned above...we can only hope.
I was also looking into MMS is that located in Vegas every year? Next year I will have to decide between TechEd or MMS again. I would like to gather a list of a bunch of good conferences to attend because if the training budget is good I would like to go to a conference once a year. So far I only hear about TechEd and MMS.
