As many of us already knew, there won’t be a Tech-Ed Europe 2011. Main reason is that Microsoft got much feedback asking for shifting Tech-Ed Europe back to the summer timeframe. And this is going to happen in 2012.
Organizing a Tech-Ed conference takes much time, having one in 2011 in the current timeframe (Q4) and one in Q2 2012 would be way too much. Therefore Microsoft decided to drop the one for 2011.
Another thing is the place: Amsterdam, the country where I live! On one hand it’s nice, on the other hand a pity as well since I always loved to travel to another country (attended Tech-Ed 2008 in Barcelona which was AWESOME!). But also the two ones afterwards in Berlin (2009 & 2010) were very nice.
Any one looking for a Tech-Ed 2011? There is one in North America (Atlanta, Georgia) you can attend. Want to know more about that one? Go here.
