There were hundreds of sessions at this week's Microsoft TechEd 2011 conference in Atlanta, covering a wide swath of topics for IT professionals and developers. There were sessions on everything from Forefront Unified Gateway, to the consumerization of IT. I've been slogging through the slides -- which Microsoft is posting along with the Webcast presentations from the show -- looking for some of the more interesting tidbits. (At least interesting to this Microsoft watcher. Your interests may, and most definitely will, vary.)
I've pulled out a handful of the slides I felt explained Microsoft's various products and strategies most succintly and tellingly. The first one here is Microsoft's latest cloud-computing architectural diagram. Microsoft's cloud diagrams have come a long way since the company first attempted to explain its public/private/hybrid strategy. This one highlights the key products Microsoft is positioning as being central to its public and private cloud offerings.
