TechNet Events registration is now open! As I mentioned in a previous blog post, the next set of TechNet events will be in a “firestarter” format and will include a full day of content on a single topic.  The day will start off with a morning session that has 100-200 level content and then goes deeper into the subject matter, building on that knowledge as the day progresses. You can expect the initial morning session to be 100-200 level content with later sessions at 300 level.  This content focused on IT Pro’s will have information relevant for small, medium and enterprise sized businesses, so hit the registration link below to register today, seats are already filling up fast, so don’t miss out.

In addition to the change in format, now there are two different technology series per half year instead of one series per quarter. For the remainder of 2010 the set of events will be focused on SharePoint 2010 (my topic) and Windows 7 Deployment.  All of the registration links below have different dates for each of these technologies, so there will full day sessions on both SharePoint 2010 and Windows 7 deployment but on different days.  For example, November 2nd in New York is a full day on Windows 7 Deployment and November 17th is a full day on SharePoint 2010. Here are the details of the events with registration links below:
