TechEd has always been one of those shows that, in my mind "other people" get to go to, but I've been taking a look at where Microsoft has been going lately, and the fact that as a one-man IT shop, I use a ton of Microsoft technologies that I can only barely keep up with.
In a nutshell, instead of spending a week studying "this" or "that" - I've got the impression that TechEd is a great place to get a quick refresher (as well as some in-depth knowledge) across the width and breadth of the Microsoft ecosystem.
I suppose that, now that registration is looming on the horizon, I'd like to hear from others if that's an accurate impression?
I'm most interested in beefing up my knowledge of System Center, SQL, Virtualization (server-level primarily, to make sure I'm doing it "right"), as well as Exchange and possibly some Lync.
Would love to hear from previous attendees about the "bang for the buck" factor to TechEd so I can help make my case to management.
