Tech.Ed Oz: Ask the Experts

Last night was the Ask the Experts evening. This was something that I thought worked quite well last year and was looking forward to it again this year. However I have to say that the execution this year was a little lacking, although I did only hang out in the one area (Web Developer & Infrastructure). Rather than tables with balloons and labels indicating the different expert topic areas, the balloons were positioned from the floor, which kind of made it difficult to determine who in the general area was there to answer questions. Also, the designated experts were hard to identify as they weren’t marked up in any special way. Last year the experts were issued with large orange badges that made it very simple to approach them and ask a question.
