I am always asked if there are any good training events happening that have great technical speakers.  I thought I would mention that there is an event called Tech Days taking place in San Francisco (at the Microsoft downtown office) on May 2nd and 3rd.  The list of speakers include the following:

  • Mark Minasi
  • Jeff Hicks
  • Laura Hunter
  • Steve Evans
  • Richard Campbell
  • Chris Avis
  • Kevin Remde
  • CA Callahan
  • Sam Bowne
  • Nick Hawkins
  • Glenn Block
  • Christa Anderson
  • Jennelle Crothers
  • Aleksandar Nikolic

Most of these folks are either MVPs or Microsoft employees. 

There are quite a few topics including PowerShell, Windows Server 2012 (Hyper-V, Storage, etc.), Windows Azure, IPv6, SharePoint, Windows 8 and Lync.  I was originally going to speak at this event as well, but since I changed job roles, I was not able to make it.  If you are in the Bay Area, I would definitely encourage you to set aside the time to attend.  More information can be found at their website: http://techdays.org.
