Hey folks, I'm back from play time with Mickey and as it turns out my team started a new blog series while I was gone. :)  February's series is about Migration and Deployment.  From Windows 8 to System Center App Controller, we will be providing daily articles on these topics.  The schedule(notice we spared everyone weekend reading/writing):

  • Week #1 (February 4-8): Windows 8
  • Week #2 (February 11-15): Windows Server 2012
  • Week #3 (February 18-22): Windows Azure
  • Week #4 (February 25-28): System Center 2012 App Controller

Since I was out for the first part of the series I thought I would write up a summary of the topics with links to the articles here.
