Yesterday’s keynote was delivered by Antoine Leblond, Microsoft’s Corporate Vice President of Windows Web Services. Antoine announced several updates to Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (known as MDOP in the techie community), along with details about the value Windows 8 will bring to businesses.
MDOP is near and dear to our hearts at Microsoft in Cambridge because a key piece of MDOP – Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V) – is developed
right here at NERD. App-V transforms applications into centrally managed services that are never installed and don’t conflict with other applications. Want to join the team? Check out the local jobs here.
Yesterday’s lunch address focused on Women in Technology, addressing issues about promoting, retaining and supporting women IT professionals and how they impact our industry. The discussion was vibrant and well received; something very important, yet slightly uncomfortable for an extremely male dominated audience.
Day two was capped off with a celebration at B.B.King’s Orlando, where TechEd guests enjoyed live music, comfort food and sophisticated conversation.
Today holds another impressive lineup for physical and virtual attendees. Also on the agenda are hands-on labs, TechExpo, workshops and track session. Everything is being streamed online here, don’t miss out!
