Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
The Microsoft® Configuration Manager team is pleased to announce that applications are now being accepted for participation in the Configuration Manager v.Next Community Evaluation Program (CEP). The goal of this program is to provide early adopters a streamlined approach to evaluating Configuration Manager v.Next.
For customer and partners who want to efficiently manage implementation, test scenarios, discover and contribute to best practices, the CEP provides a structured approach for connecting with the product group and a community of peers. As a member of the Configuration Manager v.Next community, you will be asked to participate through the sharing of your learnings, questions, and experiences.
