I'll take contributions if you like, but I was really talking about Microsoft's upcoming events. You can register now, pay for them now, and attend them next year. So if you've got funds that go away at the end of 2008, look into these events:
You can bet there will be plenty of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 coverage at both events. Agendas aren't yet finalized, but we expect to be covering MDT 2010 pretty heavily too.
Got money left in the budget? Send it to Microsoft. http://blogs.technet.com/mniehaus/archive/2008/12
