So, another TechEd is over. Last TechEd I worked in the "Ask the Expert" booth, this TechEd I gave a lecture on developing for the Vista Media Center. The lecture was in the first day, so after that I have the time to go to sessions and most important to meet people. My session score was not high, but since it was my first lecture in TechEd Europe, it is O.K. Most of the comments that I have got were about dissatisfaction about issues in the Media Center SDK and tools, such as no tool such as Expression for Media Center....

If you are coming to Tech-Ed Barcelona and you wonder what to do in the first day at 16:00, then don't. Come to hear my lecture about Media Center development. I will show you what Media Center is and you'll understand why you should create a Media Center Client to your application or Web site. Then I will present the various ways to create Media Center Applications. If you are familiar with MCE development then this lecture is probably not for you. See you.
