Today was the first day of the TEK conference tutorials. These are generally about 3 hours in length and dive into a given topic a little deeper than what you would typically get in a session. The biggest problem is that you can usually only go to one. Theater hopping, in this case, means that you end up getting less entertained.
There were 3 topics that were given.
Building a Zend Framework application
Converting Your MySQL App to NoSQL with MongoDB
Bad Guy For a Day: A Websecurity hands-on tutorial
