After� a flight� of around 2 hours we ( @BertWolters, @CoenV and myself) arrived at Madrid Airport around 9am. Since the convention center was the next Metro stop, we decided to register first and collect the TechEd Europe bag. After this short TechEd Experience we decided it was time to take a trip to our appartment. After a trip of about 45 minutes we arrived at the Metro station which was closest to our appartment.

Last week wasn’t only TechNet_Live week, but on Thursday it was time for the yearly GeekNight! During this evening you can attend some really geeky presentations. The demo-part of one of the most geeky presentations of the evening was for sure the one of Sander Berkouwer and Marien de Gelder (of the Dutch company OGD).

TechNet_Live : The KeynoteTechNet_Live : De Keynote

I’m sorry but since TechNet_Live is a Dutch event, the blogs about TechNet are in Dutch only. Please click Nederlands in the right pane to read the Dutch blog posts.  Helmer Erwin Hartenberg verzorgt vanmorgen de keynote en heet ons van harte welkom op TechNet_Live. Natuurlijk moeten de sponsoren ook even genoemd worden… We gaan het tijdens de keynote vooral hebben over ‘the cloud’. Hij wil hier ‘vanuit een bepaald perspectief’ over praten.
