Windows IT Pro Authors Speaking at TechEd

There are literally hundreds of sessions, roundtables, breakouts, seminars, and keynotes offered up every year at Microsoft TechEd. Finding the best sessions can sometimes take some work, so I thought I’d take some of the guesswork out of your TechEd session selection by pointing out the sessions that are being presented or co-presented by Windows IT Pro editors, freelancers, and contributing editors.

Based on my quick, informal research, here’s a list of the all of our colleagues and contributors who are speaking at TechEd, following by a display of what topic they’re generally speaking about at the show. Beneath this list you’ll see the author listed individually, along with a short session description taken directly from the TechEd 2012 content catalog.
