Hyper-V TechFest - TechEd Live New Zealand 2008

What's a great event without an amazing party? TechEd's "TechFest" is world famous in New Zealand as The Tech Party Of The Year, Every Year! And this year the Hyper-V TechFest was no exception, in a great new location, with eye-wateringly great parfomances by the boys from Op Shop and dDub - proudly brought to you by the Virtualisation & Server team at Microsoft New Zealand (thanks lads!)

TechEd 2008...done
I knew we could lay claim to being the largest ICT conference in NZ but I was told yesterday that TechEd is the largest conference event of any type in New Zealand. Wow.

Everything turned out like we had planned...
Opshop headlined last night at TechFest and I can't get that song out of my head now - I think the technical term is an earworm! Great night last night...
