Did you miss TechEd North America or TechEd Europe this year? Never fear, because although you did miss out on the live interaction of being there, you can watch some of the presentations on Channel 9.
Here's a run-down of 3 IIS-related breakout sessions that you will want to check out:
For the latest on the new features in IIS there's "IIS: What’s New in Window Server 2012 R2" presented by Wade Hilmo, development lead on IIS at TechEd Europe
A different take on IIS' new features comes from 2 other members of the IIS team at TechEd North America, Erez Benari and Ahmed ElSayed.
For on-premises hosting built on the goodness of IIS and Windows Azure Web Sites, there's the Windows Azure Pack (former codename "Katal") presentation at TechEd Europe by Ryan Jones.
It's not quite like being in Madrid or New Orleans, but the content is still great. Enjoy.... and hope to see you at TechEd next year!
