Unconference Teched: Improving App Installation UX in Win 7


TechEd India is all about Us – the community. In the true spirit of community the UnConference space was presented at Teched India. UnConference was hosted in the Community Pavilion @ TechEd India throughout the day and streamed live. It was one of the favorite place where people connected at the Teched.

My session discussed about the tool “Client Profile Configuration Designer” which is used to give an effective user experience during installation. Further, I also touched on the benefits of having a per-user applications and the application Deployment enhancements with Windows 7. You can download my presentation deck here.

I was there at the teched only on 14th, and hence got a chance to attend few sessons of Vikram and Chaitra. I reckon, all the other sessions were great as well. No doubt with the speaking capabilities of Dr. Nitin, Arun and Pinal. They must have just rocked the UnConference space !!!

It was a fantastic experience to meet fellow MVPs again and Pinal just brought me back the memories of the South Asia MVP Summit. I am eagerly waiting for the Next Teched !!
