Tips to take control of TechEdFrom jambalaya to Po boys, from Windows Server to SQL Server, New Orleans is the place to be next week for TechEd North America 2013.  At this premiere event for IT pros and enterprise developers alike, you’ll be able to get a grip on Microsoft products at the Hands on Labs, flock together to join your peers at the Birds of a Feather sessions and lay the groundwork you need to build upon your knowledge and expertise at our Foundational Sessions.

In fact, TechEd offers so much technical goodness that we wanted to share some tips on how to get the most out of your trip in advance.  Start by attending one of the seven Foundational Sessions, which include four specifically from the Server-Cloud-Tools group,  and then check this off our list of  11 ways to get the most out of TechEd North America.  Of course, all work and no play makes the IT pro a dull boy, so we’ve also set out some of the many opportunities to relax and play at the event.

Of course, if TechEd isn’t in your plans for next week, you can still stay connected to TechEd 2013 from anywhere. Also be sure to visit us here next week for the latest event and product news direct from the conference floor!
