Our team of 11 Technical Evangelists (IT Pro Evangelists) are once again on the road and delivering live, FREE IT Camps for you!  We’re bringing you three very compelling topics:

  1. What’s new in System Center 2012 SP1, and how it makes it easier to extend your datacenter and private cloud into or onto hosters or even Windows Azure and IaaS (Infrastructure-as-a-Service) virtual machines.
  2. How to upgrade from earlier versions of Windows Server to Windows Server 2012, and
  3. The best, easiest, most flexible way to deploy Windows 8 to your users.

Click here for the TechNet Events pageThe day starts with checkin and breakfast at 8:30am, with the presentations starting at 9:00am local time.  We’ll provide lunch, a prize drawing, and then an afternoon of hands-on-labs that you can take at your own pace.  The day wraps up whenever you want to leave, but we try to clear the room by 4:00 pm. (I have a plane to catch. Smile)

“Are there any requirements for my hardware, or setup for doing the labs?”

Yes indeed.  And this is important.  To participate in the afternoon hands-on lab session, you will need to bring your own computer (laptop preferred) with the following minimum configuration:

Recommended:Although wireless internet access will be available, you may find that bringing your own mobile connectivity (MiFi™, phone data tethering, etc.) will be desirable.

See you there!
