If you are attending TechEd, be sure to say “hi” to the members of the team who will be there. Todd Anglin, our head of Developer Evangelism, will be running Birds of Feather sessions on building great web applications: http://telerikwatch.com/2009/04/join-me-at-my-teched-bof-sessions.html
Stephen Forte, our Chief Strategy Officer, will try to break his personal record of 10 TechEd sessions by doing 11 (you read it right - eleven!) talks this time. Here's his schedule: http://www.stephenforte.net/PermaLink,guid,d1e24c20-eff1-48e4-a0e8-7dbad80994f8.aspx
If you try to locate the Telerik booth, you'll notice that there isn't one this year. Unlike many others, we choose not to send marketing and sales people to trade shows. We only staff our booths with some of the most experienced people in our technical organization, as well as members of the senior management at Telerik. And in light of the upcoming Q2 release, which is packed with new stuff and improvements, we decided to give our PMs some “trade show” rest. You’ll soon see why we did not want to distract the dev teams and take their valuable time away from our pending projects.
As a token of consolation (and partly because I'm trying to stay true to my style), I'd like to share a screenshot of one of our Secret Projects. Details? Well, it’s a really cool WPF application... Not enough? Stay tuned and we’ll have more news about it in the coming weeks.
We will be sure to welcome you at our booth @ PDC and if you are coming back to Los Angeles, so we look forward to seeing you then! And if you are looking to talk with a Telerik representative, Todd will be at the Microsoft “Ask the Experts” Web Experience booth and Steve is easy to find after his sessions. You can also find him at the “Ask the Experts” SQL booth or at “Speaker Idol” where he will be a judge.
