TechEd Pre-Conference Seminars Offer Extended Learning

Sign in to queue


TechEd Pre-Conference Seminars offer in-depth study of the latest technologies for a full day, presented by industry luminaries. Attending a Pre-Con is an investment that enhances your learning experience at TechEd, giving you a step up on the week, and laying a foundation to help you get the most out of sessions and labs.

This year, choose from 13 Pre-Conference Seminars, each designed specifically to address a need critical to today's IT Professionals and Enterprise Developers. Check the list of Pre-Cons for North America and Europe and be sure to read the speaker bios and visit their blogs. Some of today's leading experts are presenting—these guys truly are the rock stars of our industry—and this is a great opportunity to tap into their knowledge and insights. Many are published authors, so you may want to maximize your learning opportunity with some reading before you attend.

Pre-Cons take place the day before the conference opens: Sunday, June 2 for TechEd North America and Monday, 24 June for TechEd Europe and include lunch with your peers—another chance to network and discuss what you're learning.

Explore the TechEd Pre-Conference line-up (you may have trouble choosing just one) and register today for TechEd North America or  TechEd Europe.

    In my experience, the pre-cons are spotty.  They are not recorded, and powerpoints/outlines/prep materials are seldom available, so you generally need to spend a fair amount of your bandwidth taking copious notes.  Jeremy Moskowitz's Group Policy one a couple of years back was quite good. 

    I would say that if you have a modicum level of knowledge they can be rewarding.  But I would definitely not use one of these to quickly master anything new.
