It's TechEd Europe time. I got into Barcelona yesterday, arriving from Tunis where I spoke at the first North Africa Developer Conference. It was great event at a fantastic location. I mean ... how much better can it get that a beach resort where the session rooms are 500m away from the beach. Malek Kemmou, the Microsoft Regional Director from Morocco and the speaker rock-star in North Africa was the most excellent host one could imagine.

Now I am sitting at the speaker's hotel in the lobby (wireless enabled) checking email and prepping demos. I am looking forward to meet lots of friends from all around Europe, to quite a few parties and I am sure my talks are going to be fun, too. And what's even better: This event marks the end of a stretch of about 4 months (excluding that one week of vacation) that I have been almost constantly on the road. After Barcelona I will actually get some time at the office, start to figure out new stuff and can complete and consolidate a bunch of things that I started during this time but could never get quite done. And that also means that this blog will be much less boring than it was in the last couple of weeks ;)
