This week, we’ll be joining Microsoft in New Orleans as a sponsor of the 2013 TechEd Event. With over 7,000 IT professionals and developers planned to attend the show, we are excited to engage and collaborate with Microsoft innovators, third-party experts, and thousands of our peers.

As an exhibitor at the TechExpo, we’ll have a booth (#229) and will also be featured during a Windows Azure session on Wednesday, June 5. During the session, Elmer Thomas, Developer Evangelist at SendGrid and Chris Shaw, Program Manager at Microsoft, will take you through a lively demonstration with a sample app utilizing the Windows Azure platform and SendGrid to queue and play emailed songs via an API. This is an interactive session you won’t want to miss!

The agenda includes keynote presentations led by Microsoft’s senior leaders, discussions on timely, technology-based topics that are suggested, selected, and moderated by your peers as well as hands-on and instructor led labs.

The event is at the New Orleans Morial Convention Center and gets started with conference sessions and the TechExpo on Monday, June 3, and goes through Thursday, June 6. If you haven’t already, visit the TechEd website now to register to attend. And Windows Azure customers can sign up and get started with 25,000 free SendGrid emails per month. Be sure to visit us at booth 229. We’re looking forward to seeing you there!
