TechEd Countdown? There’s a Site for That (Twitter too!)

Please take a moment and answer these questions:

  • Are you an IT Professional or Enterprise Developer?
  • Are you registered or planning to register for TechEd North America, Microsoft’s premier technology conference?

If you answered yes to those questions, congratulations! Keep going and answer the following:

  • Are you excited thinking about everything you’re going to do and all the people you’re going to see in Houston?
  • Do you find yourself wondering how many days you have to wait until TechEd opens on May 12, 2014?

If you answered yes to those as well, you’re in luck! I have the perfect website for you!  Stop what you’re doing, fire up your favorite browser, and go to:

What are you waiting for? Go! Go now! Bookmark the site! Share it with your friends and neighbors. Make it your home page on every browser you see. Get it tattooed to your arm.

You’ll be glad you did. Except for that tattoo idea. You probably won’t be happy about that later.

And if you need a daily reminder, go follow @TechEdCountdown on Twitter and get a daily tweet letting you know how many days remain as well as other info you might find interesting.

TechEd Countdown 175

In all seriousness, I created both the site and Twitter account because I love travel countdowns, especially those related to TechEd.  I hope you find it useful and fun, and if you don’t, that’s OK too. I learned a few things, mostly what a pain in the “you know what” PHP can be.  I also have to acknowledge Mike Rudy (@MikeRudy) for being the inspiration to extend my basic countdown site when he came along with his How Many Days Until Star Wars site and Twitter account ( @DaysTilStarWars).
