Today the Energize IT '07 "early-bird" registration page went live.  You can go and register yourself for the event and join us for the day as we celebrate the past year and get your geek on!  Energize IT '07 will be a big event, much bigger than last year and we have a lot lined up.  While we are still working out the schedule I can let you in on this much....

  • At least three speakers up from Redmond to talk about vitualization, security and SQL Server Codename Katmai
  • Three hands on labs covering System Center and ForeFront
  • Eight tracks covering IT Pro, Developer, Designer, Security, Game Development and more
  • Longhorn Server, System Center, Unified Communications
  • 2000 of your fellow IT enthusiasts
  • A boatload of fun, swag, and geekyness

I am especially excited because this is the culmination of a pretty exciting year for me.  You might rememeber that I was a speaker at Energize IT '06 delivering two breakout session on the IT Pro track around virtualization.  You may also remember the demo I did during Allen Stewart's keynote doing an unplanned failover with a Virtual Server 2005 R2 cluster.  Well since then things have been a little hectic with a new job, moving to a new city, travelling across the country numerous times etc..... 

Energize IT '07 is the culmination of this for me personally, and for Microsoft Canada it is a chance to celebrate with you the exciting year we are about to wrap up.  I really hope you can join us and if you can't we will be recording all the sessions and keynote for your viewing pleasure.  We even have a few tricks up our sleeve.........

  • Wasn't there Energize IT satellite sites last year, where the local groups rebroadcast what was shown in Toronto locally? Remembered one at BCIT last year out here in Vancouver, will there be another one this year for other locations besides Toronto?

  • Hi Bill,

    The event won't be streamed live but all the keynotes and breakouts will be recorded and made available afterwards.
