Upcoming Technet Events

I’ d been eagerly awaiting the annoucement of the latest Technet events (i heard about it first from Georgina Mitcham’s blog) and as Vijay was i was a little disappointed there were no events planned in the Midlands.

I appreciate that there are only limited resources but i thought surely the Midlands would be a good area to target the maximum amount of people.

But then i read Vijay’s comments and he’s quite right

and i quote, 

“Luckily the technical content is worth travelling some distance for”

and that is the key for me.

It’s a free event that will only cost me time and petrol money but will give me an awful lot of value and it will also present the opportunity to meet other techies and Microsoft staff

So currently i’m going to Manchester on September 20th for “TechNet on the Road” and i’ll be hanging around after for “Vista After Hours”

It’ll be a long day but worth it

Anyone else going to this event or any of the others?

  • I’ve been to the After Hours sessions when they were run earlier this year – definitely worth going to!

    I’m booked in for other TechNet roadshows – these are usually far better in terms of content than anything else MS produce.

    It’s only worth it if you know what you’re looking for and achieve it!

  • Good point!

    Every technet event i’ve ever been to i have come away feeling pleased with what i got out of it

    When i first saw the annoucement i let the venue get in the way of the actual content. I’m glad i changed my viewpoint

  • My reason for going is to start to get to understand Windows Server 2008 as it’s the next major Microsoft Server platform and Virtualisation. Seeing as Server 2008 is at the heart of Cougar then I see it as a must attend event.

  • I’ll be going to the Manchester event on the 20th, plus the “Vista After Hours” on the same day. With my house (a short journey from Manchester) being opposite to a late-opening pub – you’re very welcome to join “Netlink & Co Drink After Hours” too. 😉
