Just random IT related thoughts (ok, not exactly "random", but please excuse some lack of structure :))

imageNot only the truth, but also the name of the event I participated in Nairobi, Kenya on Nov 25.

Emmanuel, Stewart, team thanks a lot for making this happening!

What I really liked about the event - is the feeling of a real hunger for information from the community. What I didn’t like – is that I got another prove that we, as Microsoft, are not doing a good job informing out tech guys about the ways of getting information. I heard a lot of these from the audience:

  1. “what do you mean I can download it publicly?”
  2. “really? are these e-learnings and webcasts for free?”
  3. “what forums you mention where I can ask my question? TechNet/MSDN?”

From now on I commit to make sure these MSDN links are known to all MEA developers communities I meet, talk and/or e-mail (and the same links on TechNet are known for IT Pros):

ppt and other stuff will be available in this post

Ping me if you have ay questions guys!

  • В общем-то да. Когда нужно найти и скачать что-то конкретное, то сайты MS одно из самых запутанных и неудобных мест. По ключевым словам поиск какой только далёкой от предмета поиска "ерунды" не выдаёт. Вопросы выше возникают в т.ч. от этого. Пока найдёшь - спаму начитаешься.

  • как в анекдоте: ну а альтернатива? Альтернатива - блоги :) Спасибо, что тут читаете! Оч надеюсь, что поможет Вам, а Вы потом ещё паре-тройке десятков-сотен-тысяч поможете :)
