Trip report from TechED Europe 2009

As many of you know already, I was at TechEd Europe 2009 between November 8, and November 13. The event was sold out, and because of that very crowded. I got to meet a lot of interesting persons, to make a lot of new friends, and to do a lot of activities as well. One very interesting thing that happened to me, was that Intel got an eye on me before TechEd was even started. Prior to my Birds Of a Feather “The Future of Parallel Programming” a team from Intel came to me and asked if I agree to be filmed during my session, and after that interviewed, so they can publish it on “Intel Software Network”. The answer was yes, and the result is here:”Video chat: The future of parallel programming”, and here:

So now I am on YouTube! :)

Anyway, it was a very busy week. If you go to ThechED online and lookup my name on the session list you will get 17 hits. More a about those sessions in a future post. I was as well member of the jury panel on the first day of Speaker Idol contest, and worked on the Hands On Lab Area. I did as well some interviews for the www.cloudcasts.net with Tess Ferrandez, Paula Januszkiewicz, Karen Young, and Jon Flanders.

One thing I didn’t like, was that there weren’t any activities for speakers. So the only place to meet other speakers was on the speaker lounge, but  almost everyone was using the room just prior to their own session, so everyone was very stressed.

This week I am at PDC, and I plan to attend the preconference day on Patterns of Parallel Programming, and then to do some more interviews for the www.Cloudcasts.net , so stay tuned.
