If you haven't signed up for Tech Days '08 Atlanta, what are you waiting for. Run on over to http://www.msdnevents.com/atlanta and sign up for 1, 2, or all 3 days.
In addition to the posted conference, there's a series of chalk talks that are not on the official schedule. These are great ways to interact with experts at a level that is typically deeper than you get in the standard lecture type presentation. There are some interesting sessions which Glen has outlined on his blog.
Here's the quick rundown:
8:30 AM - Developing Applications for Windows Mobile - Rob Cameron (Microsoft)
9:45 AM - XNA Game Studio Development for Zune - Rob Cameron (Microsoft)
11:00 AM - Introduction to Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio - Brian Johnson (Microsoft)
8:30 AM - Can we use SharePoint for That? - Doug Ware (Elumenotion)
9:45 AM - Deep Dive into the ASP.NET AJAX Update Panel - Wallace McClure, Scalable Development)
11:00 - LINQ Deep Dive - Jim Wooley (Yours truly)
9:00 AM - Overview of Visual Studio Team System "Rosario" - David Scruggs (Microsoft)
10:30 AM - ALM Open Space (Panel)
You don't have to be registered for these chalk talks to attend. These should be great talks and highly worth the cost of admission (free). I would highly recommend taking MARTA to get there as parking is not included
