TechEd on the road, Surat - Great show

Microsoft has organized TechED India 2009 at Hyderabad in the month of May during 13th to 15th. This was a biggest community event for IT professionals and Developers from all over country, and was big success and User Group leads of various cities have been asked to organized similar events in their cities, Surat was among those 10 cities.

Surat had its first TechEd event on 28th June 2009, and was organized by Surat User Group (IT Pro community) in association with DotNetChaps (Developer community). The event was organized at Umra Police Station auditorium and 150+ participants were registered for the event. You can see the event photographs



We had 80+ attendees inspite of heavy rain in the morning, we've got a mix of students, developers, IT Pro and lecturers from various institutes. We had 5 speakers who delivered power packed sessions on new technlogies, I spoke on ROW/Page compression in SQL Server 2008 and Virtualization 360 , Mrityunjaya Kumar spoke on Silverlight 3.0 and Windows 7 for Developers, Dhaval Faria spoke on What's new in .Net framework 4.0: VS 2010 and Aviraj Ajgekar spoke on Windows Server 2009 RC2.

It was really nice experience for me, all the technical sessions has got 4 out 5 rating and participants suggested to have more events in the future.

Let me say my thanks to our sponsors Microsoft, SQLPASS, UG Support Services, SolidQ Mentors, Sharma Infoway and XCellence-IT for their support, I would also like to thank Bhavin Gajjar | DotNetChaps lead for his support in organizing this event.
