This Wednesday (March 16) at I’ll be hosting the first of what I hope will be many (several already scheduled… more to follow) of what we call “IT Manager Community Chats with Kevin Remde”.  Our first one is going to be with Microsoft’s Tharun Tharian, a Sr. Product Manager for SQL Azure.  You’ll learn about what SQL Azure is, what it does, and most importantly, why you will want to consider it in your business. 

“So, this is just another webcast?”

No!  If you just want to listen, that’s fine.  In fact, these are added to the series feeds (below), and you can subscribe using your favorite podcasting software for an automated download if you choose.  But the benefit of attending these chats LIVE is that it is an opportunity for YOU to ask questions of our guests.  So if you have questions about our subject, please join us LIVE and get your questions answered. 

And if you want to check out the other recordings that we made last year, check out the series landing page here.

Plus.. here are the feeds subscribing, just in case you want to use your Zune or iTunes software:

And… Hey Kansas City! I’m going to be doing #2 in the new series in front of a live audience! If you’re attending our TechNet Event that morning, or even if you just want to drop by before the webcast starts, you’re invited to join us live and ask questions right then and there during our conversation. We’ll be talking with Group Product Manager Chris Van Wesep all about the big announcements made at this year’s Microsoft Management Summit about the newest System Center tools, and how they work with “the cloud”. 

(That chat hasn’t been officially scheduled yet, so watch this blog and my twitter feed for that announcement.)

“Say Kevin.. you don’t look anything like your photo.”

Yeah.. well… I didn’t pick the photo.  Or the different title they selected.  Oh well.  Maybe I’ll have them fix it.  But actually, I think I like their photo choice better than my ugly-and-outdated mugshot.
