TechEd EMEA Developers is just around 2 weeks away now and the pre-conference nervousness is starting to get to me :) This will be my first time at TechEd (even as an attendee) so I am really excited.

I was just chatting a little with one of the track-owners to figure out what the venue and the presentation rooms looked like to get a feel for what the sessions are going to be like. They scheduled my breakout session (WUX405 Common ASP.NET production issues and how to troubleshoot them with windbg) in the auditorium!!! He just laughed at me when I asked how many people the room took :) doesn’t exactly give me less pre-conference jitters :)

Update 2021: I still remember how nervous I was when I entered the 5000 seat auditorium in Barcelona

It’s scheduled for 5:30-6:45pm on Wednesday, right before the country drinks. Hopefully some people will still show up and get in the party-mode by filling their brains with troubleshooting hints and tips on what to do and not to do when developing .net applications… I’ll be joining the Swedish party for the country drinks later, so feel free to come by and have a chat about debugging and troubleshooting or whatever you want. I’ll be roaming the TechEd halls between sessions as well, so come by and say hi if you see me :)

Now, I need your help with the interactive session (TLA05-IS Debugging performance issues, memory issues and crashes in .net applications). I have a lot of demos and tidbits about the .net framework prepared, but the interactive sessions are really about what you want to know. If you have something that you really want to know about, please let me know so I can prepare it a little for the session. I really want to make sure that if you attend, you get as much out of it as possible…

A little caveat, I don’t really do much visual studio debugging, most of it is production level stuff, i.e. debugging and troubleshooting problems that happen in production environments where you can’t use visual studio, but I’ll try to answer whatever debugging/troubleshooting related questions you might have.

A little update on the interactive session as well, it is scheduled for Thursday at 1:30-2:45 PM and will be repeated on Friday at 10:45 for those of you who want to attend but can’t attend on Thursday.

I really hope to see you there.

If I have a good internet connection I am hoping to do some blogging from the conference…

Laters, Tess
