I'm writing this in Heathrow Terminal 5 whilst en-route to LAX to speak at tec2010. I'm super honoured to be delivering two sessions in one of the most technically recognised conferences ever. The line-up of speakers is staggering, folks from the exchange product group as well as several super bright mvp's. Speaking amongst such greatness is quite humbling and I'm looking forward to learning as much as I'm going to be imparting knowledge in my own sessions.
If you can come to TEC then do so. It's massively empowering AND it happens twice a year, in the US and in Europe.
