Episode 8 of the TechEd Countdown Show is now ready for your viewing pleasure! Rick (@RicksterCDN) and Joey (@JoeySnow) are in the Green Screen studio for this show which means Special Effects! You’ve never seen beignets so large!
They point out something I didn’t realize about the stores. There are two separate stores. The conference store will be the same as we’ve come to expect from earlier TechEd conferences. This store is where you can buy books, Microsoft clothes, and other Microsoft-branded items. The Microsoft Store will be a pop-up store where you can buy the same gear you will find in a regular Microsoft retail store.
The Windows Phone App is available now in the store. Look for Ch9 Events. This is a Channel 9 branded version of the EventBoard app that was already in the store. You will be prompted to setup an Eventboard account, and once you have that you will be directed to the Channel 9 site to link your Channel 9 account with Eventboard. Once you do that, you’re ready to go add your conference and start working with this very handy app. If you’re not using Windows Phone, check the app store for your device of choice for Ch9 Events.
