Architect Road Rally @ TechEd

Among my other duties, I am co-ower of the architecture track at this year’s TechEd. We’ve got a great track lined up, including two new sessions from Pat Helland in his Metropolis series. You can see an earlier version of the original Metropolis session as part of the Architecture Strategy Series or read an article about Metropolis in the latest JOURNAL. I’m presenting a session on information architecture (guess I gotta get the slides done soon!). Plus there are 15 other great sessions to see on architecture. We’re also running two precon’s on architecture : One on patterns and practices (run by Keith Pleas, my recent partner-in-crime on .NET Rocks) and one on identity management.

After the precons on Sunday night, we’re having a party – the Architect Road Rally @ the San Diego Auto Museum. Party goers get a close up look at the history of Porshe, race RC cars and play the new Rallisport Challenge 2 on Xbox. We’re also giving away some RC cars as well as copies of RSC2. Plus, food & beer all evening (i.e. this is not an hor’dourves party). So please register and come have a good time.

Finally, we’re also planning on running focus groups @ TechEd – your chance to help us help you better with architecture. Also, people chosen to participate in the focus groups get something Cool. Register for the focus groups when you register for the road rally.

See you in San Diego!
