Your Guide to the Latest Windows Server Product Information
We’ve put a lot of work into Windows Server 2012, and are happy to see the positive feedback from press and those who’ve downloaded the beta. We look forward to presenting Windows Server 2012 at our June TechEd events in Orlando and Amsterdam. In this blog, Christa Anderson, a Program Manager in our Partner and Customer Ecosystem team, talks about an opportunity for those that can’t make it to those events.
Not everyone who wants to learn in-depth about Windows Server 2012 can make it to TechEd. Therefore, in cooperation with our co-sponsors Dell and HP, we’re sponsoring the Windows Server 2012 Community Roadshow, a complimentary series of events held around the world to present on some of the key infrastructure improvements we’ve made in Windows Server 2012, including:
Even better, this road show will be presented by Microsoft MVPs: independent technology experts and experienced presenters. MVPs speak regularly at third-party and Microsoft industry conferences such as TechEd, so we’re thrilled to have so many MVPs presenting in this road show.You can sign up at no cost for technical sessions in your area from the Windows Server 2012 Community Roadshow web site. Some events are already full, but you can get on the wait list by clicking the SOLD OUT link and following the instructions.This is a great opportunity to learn about core infrastructure improvements in Windows Server 2012 from independent technical experts. Go register!
It would be nice if there were more locations that those listed to attend the roadshow. Or, at least have a live stream or recorded session that those of us who cannot make the locations listed can still attend.
Hi, Brian. We did our best to visit the areas where we’d reach the most people—sorry we missed you! We're still adding some locations so please check back. Unfortunately, we were not able to record or stream the sessions, but I hope that you’ll be able to join us for a future event if your city doesn't come up this time.
It would be nice to see real Microsoft employees present these topics. Microsoft seems to be offloading more and more at public events to external parties. There can be a healthy ratio (80:20) of Microsoft vs external speakers, not the way Microsoft goes now. Simple thing: if its a Microsoft event, Microsoft should present.
Thanks for reading. We asked MVPs to present at these events because MVPs are independent and can--and will--tell it as they see it, and are also both highly technical and good speakers. Many MVPs are highly respected both by people on the product groups at Microsoft and the community at large, and we're very happy to have their participation in this roadshow. If an event is taking place near you, I strongly recommend you check it out.
