GeneralYou'd Think Microsoft Could Build a Decent Conference Website PinprotectorAspDotNetDev13-Nov-12 20:04 
But you'd be wrong. I'm at the SharePoint Conference and I use http://myspc.mssharepointconference.com/ to check my schedule and such (you won't see much at that URL unless you log in).
 
Lag: I couldn't even use it yesterday, as it was taking minutes to load each page (or not loading at all).
 
Paging: Given the slow load times, the paging just compounds the issue. There are 24 pages of "sessions" (basically, presentations on various SharePoint topics), and the pager looks like this when you're on the 5th page:
Prev 1 ... 4 5 6 ... 24 Next
That is effectively the same as:
First Prev Current Next Last
Since it's all handled via AJAX, there's no way to modify the query string to skip to specific pages either.
 
Wireless: This isn't a problem with the site, but it has prevented me from reaching the site. While I was able to load a page or two, the wireless has been laughable. Most of the time, I have an icon that indicates the wireless could not be connected.
 
Pretty sad, considering much of what they've been talking about at the conference so far is scalability and handling high load on the cloud. They can't even handle a few thousand conference attendees.
