Tech-Ed 2008 Conference DVD Set has arrived.

Tech-Ed Conference DVD Set (5 disc version) I like having a copy of the TechEd DVDs as they make great reference material.

This year’s Tech-Ed DVD Conference DVD Set contains 9 Dual-layer DVDs!  Those  9 DVDs are from the North American Tech-Ed Developers (Disks 1 –> 5) and IT-Professional (Disks 6-9) conference.

I’ve extracted the presentation lists from those DVDs, and have made it available below.

You can buy the set here.  Note that I’m not sure if it ships with 5 disks (pictured) or whether you get the full 9 DVDs.

What I do with my discs is extract the presentations, this year they are all Powerpoint 2007 based, and keep them in a reference folder.  Which is then searchable by my desktop search tool (Google Desktop at the moment).  This year’s collection is 2.6GB in size.

The presentations which have caught my eye so far are:

For the curious, I have:

  • extracted the DVD content list
  • added it to my Tech-Ed 2005 / 2006 / 2007 content list, and

placed it in a (zipped) Excel spreadsheet here.

edited 18th October: expanded out why the DVD set is worth buying.
