Microsoft Learning partnered with the Microsoft Server and Tools team and Developer and Platform Evangelism (DPE) to deliver the “Windows Server 2012 Jump Start: Preparing for the Datacenter Evolution” on June 20-21, 2012. Thanks to an amazing product and a phenomenal team effort, this event shattered two Jump Start records with 2,064 attendees from 103 different countries and extremely positive event feedback!

We are excited to announce the release of the HD-quality video recordings available on TechNet Videos now!

Special thanks and congratulations to the instructor team of Rick Claus (Microsoft Senior Technical Evangelist) and Corey Hynes (President & Lead Architect for holSystems). Both have led Jump Start courses before (check out Virtualization for VMware Pros and Cloud 101) and the audience absolutely loved their engaging, conversational style, clear explanations, scenario-based discussions, and of course, lots of cutting-edge demos.
