Heroes Happen {here}

Today I registered for the Launch Day on March 11 and for the TechDays (former Dev & IT Pro Days) on March 12 & March 13. As a VIP Community member I received a free Technical VIP Community access pass for the conference. Great! Like last year, the event takes places in Ghent (ICC). The VISUG will again have a booth, so don't forget to drop by!

I'm looking forward to the event because of several reasons :
  • A time to look at the new products Windows Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008. So far I was only interested in the new release of Visual Studio and I didn't find time to check out the CTPs of the other products
  • Watch my colleague Yves Goeleven present the VSTS Application Lifecycle management
  • Attend interesting technical sessions on the latest technologies
  • Connecting with the VISUG Community
  • VISUG Geek bowling on March 12
  • ...
Last but not least - not officially confirmed - Steven Wilssens will probably come back to Belgium for the first time after his departure to Redmond in October 2006. He will most likely deliver two sessions on TechDays. So, the chances are really big that a small party will be kicked off after the sessions. It has been a while since we've met and we need to catch up on all the things that happened up till now. I think I'll have to book a hotel in the neighborhood to be on the safe side. Ghent : here we come! He will certainly have missed the Belgian beer and the great food over here ...

What's your reason to attend the TechDays?
