We’re ‘super excited’ here at TechNet for Friday, when we will be joined in Reading by System Center guru Wally Mead for a packed agenda of System Center Configuration Manager 2012 sessions in association with the Windows Management User Group (WMUG).

Wally is a Senior Program Manager at Microsoft in Redmond and is widely regarded as one of the most authoritative sources of information when it comes to SCCM. He’s got a day rammed full of information, hints, tips and giveaways and it’s sure to be a brilliant opportunity to learn and network with WMUG members.

There’s only a very limited number of places left, so you’ll need to move fast! Click here for registration details and check out the agenda below.
