PHOTO GALLERY: Inside the Microsoft Tech Ed RFID boiler room

Microsoft Tech Ed delegates are most likely IT professionals who like dance music, Facebook, Crysis, and have never attended the event before.

The trends are being broadcast live onto a screen in the RFID boiler room at Microsoft Tech Ed 2008 in Sydney, using information collected from delegates as they pass either fixed or mobile readers.

After IT professionals, architects were the most popular job title moving past readers at the time of writing, accounting for around a quarter of attendees.

A little over 10 per cent of people in the auditorium were developers.

An interesting trend was that most people in the room had never been to a Tech Ed event before. The percentages dropped significantly for people who had attended Tech Ed pre-2003.

Facebook was the most popular method of community participation, followed by Twitter. There were as many bloggers in the room as there were people with an online photo gallery.

Almost a quarter of attendees appeared to prefer dance or electronic music, however 62 per cent of people in the room had not specified this preference, so the data could not be recorded.
