  • 5 minutes to read

There are 14 core tracks and 2 virtual tracks at TechEd this year, which will cover more than 1,000 sessions. In case you’re wondering, a virtual track is a collection of sessions or labs that share a common theme but span several tracks.

Microsoft has revised the technical tracks slightly since my original post, so I have updated my summary.


Business Applications

Business Intelligence

Database Development and Administration

Developer Tools and Technologies

Identity and Access (Virtual Track)

Management and Operations

Microsoft IT (Virtual Track)

This is a virtual track that doesn’t really cover any key products and technologies. It should cover best practices and strategies for deploying:

Mobility (new track)

Office System


SOA and Web Services

Unified Communications

Web Development and Infrastructure

Windows Client

Windows Server Infrastructure
