    Really? A co-worker of mine went to the Orlando VSLive and described is at "a worthless waste of time and money."

    Actually, PDC being delayed helps me. It was going to be a fight-and-a-half getting it approved this fiscal year since I went to Tech Ed last year. If it happens next year I should be able to get it approved quite easily.

    I went to the one in San Fran a while back and can somewhat agree however the fact that it is in Vegas would make it worthwhile.

    Not for me. I'm from there, so I've pretty much done everything there AT LEAST twice. Tongue Out

    Besides, my parents live there so I could very well go ropped into having to go home and do chores while I was there! :O

    devscovery looks to have some more advanced topics that may make it pretty good, while devconnections has more breadth.

    I'm undecided between more advanced programming and more broader-topics (architecture, etc)...which by itself maybe more of a vote for devconnections.

    devscovery looks good agenda-wise, but how good are the sessions if they are all short?

    I went to my first Tech Ed in Barcelona last year (TechEd Developers) and it was a great week.  I'm hoping I get the opportunity to go this year, fingers crossed.  Plus this year both the developers and it forum is a full five day conference, no longer 1 day pre conference and 4 day main conference.  Well worth attending I felt, I learned so much in that week.
