About three years ago, I noticed when perusing the speaker list for TechEd US (which is sorted alphabetically by first name) that there were a lot of Brians. Then I started counting and realized that there were more men named Brian speaking than there were women speaking.
I couldn’t help but notice on this year’s TechEd Developer speaker slate that there were only five Brians. Heck off the top of my head I can list more than 5 women.
- Kate Gregory
- Amanda Silver
- Sara Ford
- Lisa Feigenbaum
- Mary Chipman (SQL Server team)
There are more but I don’t know them off the top of my head. 🙂

lol – women speakers outnumber Brians. That’s pretty funny.
