I received approval yesterday to attend the Windows in Higher Education Conference 2012 in Redmond (April 29 to May 2). Held on the Microsoft Campus, this event is like a mini TechEd for those of us who work in Higher Ed. I attended back in 2007 and wish I had made more of an effort to attend in the intervening years. Presentations are split with half by Microsoft speakers and the other half by peers. Take a look at the agenda from this year’s conference for an idea of what topics are covered and by whom.
It is sometimes difficult to find and meet up with other Higher Ed people at TechEd, so this is a good opportunity to network and compare notes. I remember coming away from the 2007 event really excited about Live@Edu, and I’m interested to see what I will take away next year.
I’m also looking forward to getting back to Redmond and the Microsoft campus. Hopefully I will be able to meet up with friends and contacts while I’m there. I’ve only been to Seattle a few times, but always enjoy my time there.
Time to start a new countdown. Only 193 days until TechEd, and 150 days until Windows HiEd. See you there!
