TechEd was split into two weeks this year–one for developers and one for IT folks (a formula that has worked well at TechEd Europe the last couple of years)–and Monday morning TechEd Developers begins with a slate of full-day pre-conference sessions. I’m doing a precon on Silverlight, so if you plan to be at TechEd, stop by and join the party! It’s going to be fun. I have lots of slides to show, but more importantly, I have plenty of demos prepared. If you’ve heard about Silverlight but haven’t yet had the opportunity to dive into it, Monday’s precon is a great way to get started. We’ll start at square one and build up until you’ve seen most of the features of Silverlight 2.

I’m doing breakout sessions Wednesday and Thursday on Silverlight, asynchronous ASP.NET programming, and ASP.NET AJAX. Hope to see you there!
