While many gather for the European edition this week, just a couple weeks ago was Microsoft TechEd 2013 in New Orleans.
I had the good fortune of joining Brace Rennels to represent the EMC Community Network with the sole goal of connecting into a contingent of the enterprise community I had not been accustomed to knowing: those who focus on Microsoft.
As I’ve written about before, the brand advocacy program at EMC known as EMC Elect is modeled in a strong way after the success of the Microsoft MVP. That hat tip acknowledged, the MVP were not the community that stood out at TechEd.
To my surprise, an independent collection of MSFT friends gathered passionately under the banner of The Krewe.
I sat down with cofounder and all around wonderful person Michael Bender - no typo or relation to me – to discuss what people should know about this gathering of technical minds and how they can join in.
Here are some key links to stay in touch with The Krewe:
