Mark your conference calendar. Educators working with (or considering working with) software developers may want to have someone attend the upcoming Microsoft Tech Ed conference in Boston, MA June 11-16, 2006. It’s pricier than for most education conferences. It concentrates on learning how to build, deploy, secure, and manage solutions using the full range of current and soon-to-be-released Microsoft products. You can ask specialists in mobile platforms, including Tablet PCs, questions about using these devices in schools. It’s small enough for many attendees to arrange meetings with specialists.
