My mark @ Tech.Ed

Ok, I am back, and boy, do I have some stories...

On the first day I had a presentation about templates and features with US consultant and trainer Milan Gross. I was not very satisfied with our presentation, and I think we should have kept the scenario simpler.
I showed how I built the wsp solution and features for the Enhanced Content Query Web Part and for the Print List feature.

My next presentation was with Gayan Peiris, who left my company to join Microsoft just a month ago. We did a presentation on upgrade and migration from sharepoint 2003 to 2007.
Now, before people start asking me how to upgrade I have to say that that was Gayan's part of the presentation. My part was warning about the customization upgrade (custom webparts, event handlers etc.), and about what is different in the new version that requires re-thinking on the information architecture.
That Session went very well, if a bit tight on time, and we got good reviews (7.62) even if we didn't get to the top ten.

After our presentation we left with all of tech.ed to Movie World, where I went, for the first time in my life, on a roller coaster - Lethal Weapon. I have been told by people with more experience that this is the most frightening ride ever, everywhere. I can now believe it.
The only reason I was brave enough to go on the ride was that it was night - I couldn't see the ride. I was sure that a "lethal weapon" ride would be a video game with shooting in it.

Here is a picture of me on the ride:

Here is a movie of what the ride looks like:
