We few we happy few, we band of brothers.

June 11, 2014

Late last night I returned home after two magic and exhausting days in Barcelona. As you might know I were there for the TechEd Europe Roundtable discussions.

During the discussions we shared experiences and thoughts in and around TechEd and especially the TechEd Europe conference that returns to at Fira Barcelona in Barcelona, Spain. In October 28-31 Microsoft and a variety of industry experts will give all of us another great conference and awesome memories.

One of the discussions that are close to my heart is the community. A great conference as TechEd Europe isn’t just the great lectures, opportunity to get your hands on the technology and direct access to Microsoft employees and other technology experts. It’s the hallway discussions, the interaction during lunch the great joke in the evenings while sharing a beverage of your choice with good friends.

In my previous post I talked about a community called theKrewe and I already knew just about half of  roundtable members from just that community and seeing them again was priceless. But to get to know the other members was even better be course seeing them again will be just as awesome. Erik, Golnaz, Dieter, Sean, Aidan and Alan it was a pleasure meeting you and I already look forward to the next time we meet. Denise it was awesome to finally meet you. Ler

Beverly and Corey I haven’t forgotten about you but we still have to meet in person. 😉

It is always with mixed emotions I leave conferences and this Roundtable meeting wasn’t different. I had the opportunity to meet some good old friends and made new ones.

On my flights home this came in to my mind.

Shakespeare’s Henry V, 1598:

KING HENRY V:
This story shall the good man teach his son;
And Crispin Crispian shall ne’er go by,
From this day to the ending of the world,
But we in it shall be remember’d;
We few, we happy few, we band of brothers;
For he to-day that sheds his blood with me
Shall be my brother; be he ne’er so vile,
This day shall gentle his condition:
And gentlemen in England now a-bed
Shall think themselves accursed they were not here,
And hold their manhoods cheap whiles any speaks
That fought with us upon Saint Crispin’s day.

I do hope to see you in Barcelona if you haven’t registered yet, go ahead and do it today and save 300 €

You will learn a lot and return home with a lot of professional knowledge and some new friends.
