With Windows Server 2012 becoming generally available September 4, we want to make sure you get some hands on experience with this latest server offering. With new advances in virtualization, networking, storage and automation among other things, there is lots to hear about and lots to experience.
To that end, I’ll be keeping this blog post updated so keep coming back! I’ve even created a nice short url to help you remember and tell others: www.aka.ms/ws2012events. I’ll add details for what’s happening where and how to register as events get finalized. So far, I’ve got the details for the Windows Server Launch events and I have the cities that we’re looking at for the Windows Server IT Camps. Note that this doesn’t mean we won’t be in any other cities – these are just the cities I know for sure where you’ll be seeing us.
Your pre-event preparation
Join presenters from Microsoft to learn about what’s new in Windows Server 2012. As an attendee, you will see what is possible with Windows Server 2012 through a business value keynote, hear about how customers are already using Windows Server 2012, see a demonstration of key features and have afternoon focused on a hands-on, scenario based, camp like experience.
Register now for an event near you:
If you can’t make it to join us in person in Canada, you can also opt to join the online launch event hosted out of the US.
IT Camps are free, full day, hands-on workshops in a classroom setting where you work through common scenarios in a lab environment. We'll be providing computers and lunch as well as funding $10 to the local user group for each attendee. Seats are limited by the number of computers and space we have so please be sure to attend if you sign up! If you can't make it - please cancel in good time to allow someone else the opportunity to take your place.
During the IT camp, we'll be covering the following material:
As we confirm new dates and locations, the list below will get updated. Please remember - if you register, please make every effort to attend as space is limited!
* The Regina IT Camp is a 2 hour, bring-your-own notebook workshop in the evening. It is a guided, interactive session put on as part of the Prairie IT Pro & Developer Conference.
** The Montreal IT Camp on December 11 is a 2 hour, bring-your-own notebook workshop in the evening. It is a guided, interactive session put on as part of the DevTeach Montreal 2012 Conference.
Don’t forget to come back often for my updates. Let your friends and colleagues know – the short url is www.aka.ms/ws2012events.
Funny you should ask that today as I've got a big ol' calendar out in front of me and am going through dates. We've been a bit delayed as our events folk have been swamped with organizing the Windows Server 2012 Launch events, but you'll be hearing from me soon!
Thanks for your patience. :)
No Victoria BC dates upcoming?
I'd add in that I would be very interested in attending something in Halifax if you do manage to arrange one for here.
Why do these events never come to Halifax NS?
They used to have them at the Park Theater, but that was a long time ago.
Hi G. Trozzo,
We'd like to do an event in Victoria, but we don't have a local active community to work with and we don't have a suitable venue. If there's anyone out there that can help us with both, we'd appreciate the help.
Hi Matt C,
We're planning to do an event in Halifax if we can find a venue and some local support. We'll keep everyone updated on whether we can make it happen. Glad to hear you're interested.
we're hoping we can come to Halifax as well (see my other comment), glad to hear you're interested.
