Second day at Teched. Keynote: Windows 8 Lots of different features of the new Windows 8 are shown. Windows 2 GO demo was cool – you can boot an entire Windows from usb 3.0 stick. If you unplug the stick you have 60 seconds to replug it and everything continues to work. First Session: Introducing the New Visual Studio 2012 Unit Testing Experience (Peter Provost) Peter showed some new features of the new Visual Studio – looks great.

Yesterday was the 180th day without problems on my DEV/DEMO environment – until my eval expired without noticeable warning ahead. The whole thing just locked down and of course my SharePoint doesn’t like that: {.thickbox} Great, just great. Because Alegri is a Microsoft Partner, we do have valid SQL Server 2012 codes – so I asked for one, received one and tried to upgrade my license from EVAL to ENTERPRISE.

I will blog a bit about the sessions and stuff I saw at TechEd in Amsterdam – all from the perspective of a SharePoint guy.   Keynote (Brad Anderson) Its all about cloud and virtualization. Broad coverage of all the new stuff, quite like the new Visual Studio features (List definition builder integrated, wondering how it will work with taxonomy fields) {.thickbox}{.thickbox} First session: What’s new in Windows Azure (Scott Guthrie) Provisioning of Azure virtual machines with a new and lean HTML5 web interface – metro styled of course.
