Hi, I'm Damir Bersinic, Program and Skills Manager for TechDays 2010.

Last month I, along with Rick Claus, Ruth Morton, John Bristowe and a handful of your peers attended TechEd 2010 in New Orleans, where Rick and I both delivered sessions. The main reason we all went down to TechEd was not in fact to party in the Big Easy (though New Orleans is a great town to party in), but to use the opportunity to scout out great content to serve as the foundation of sessions at TechDays 2010.

TechEd 2010 is a monstrous conference where to walk from one end of the conference center to the other is well over 2km!  It is also monstrous in the number of sessions you can possibly see and the technology areas it covers.  Having your peer Developers and IT Pros help us to scout out what is important to you was key to ensuring we bring the best content to TechDays 2010.  Sean Kearney, Reza Alirezaei, Cory Fowler, and other Canadians we met in New Orleans all lent a hand to find the best content and their assistance is greatly appreciated.

Over the next week we will be announcing the session content for TechDays 2010 on the TechDays web site . You will soon have an opportunity to build your customized schedule to help ensure that you get the learning experience you need to help you be successful in your job.  Come check it out.

If you have not yet registered for TechDays 2010, remember that the Early Bird price of $349.99 (a savings of 50% off the regular price of $699.99) is still available.  Register today.
