Tech.ed Day 1

The day flew by really. Wandered round Ramblas in the morning, checking out some of Barcelona.

Then the guy I met yesterday (Andy) offered to show me the ropes in getting the Metro to the conference centre which was really helpful.

Quick and easy registration, followed by some lunch and then the first session I went to, Steve Riley. This was amazing, a great presenter and he really made security interesting. (not easy). I think I may have to check out some of his other sessions.

Later on I went to a session on Sysvol in 2008, i.e. you can replace NTFRS, with DFSR. One thing I learnt was you need to get to sessions early because this was totally full and I was the second last person allowed in.

An evening reception and chance to check out vendors and Ask the Experts. I met Mow and Tobias on the Powershell stand which was great. I also thanked the very nice ladies at the Technet Plus stand for the competition I won to get me the place here - they want me to do a video for them on Wednesday so naturally was happy to return the favour.

Just before leaving I was invited out by those great guys at Specops, so an excellent meal was had by all.

Plenty of sessions to get stuck into tomorrow and of course the Powershell panel discussion.
