    EduGeek\Microsoft Conf - Feb 2011

    Just as a heads up for you all. We will be having a joint conf with Microsoft on Thursday the 24th Feb 2011 at the Microsoft campus at Reading. It's limited to 50 places and there will be more details after BETT, but suggestions for content would be welcome.

    If we all stay over on the Wednesday night we could do the EduGeek awards ... a bit like the Razzies?

    On another note, we still need content for the conf. My suggestion are:

    Microsoft Labs and a look at eh shiny free things within.

    A Sneak-peek at upcoming Microsoft products.

    Ray Fleming also suggested that as we have to opportunity to access some of the biggest brains they have we should have a couple of product themed sessions. Any ideas?

    Same here but I'm happy to record a video acceptance speech


    Certainly think I can blag a trip to Reading for the day though. More news on MPS2011 world be interesting. And what about their system security package? (looking at buying it next year).

    OOOH, good idea

    An explanation on WHY THE HELL THERE'S SO MANY ACRONYMS IN THAT PRODUCT LINE would be nice too.

    or as I call it, Domino's WTHTSMAITPL SCCM session....

    Shame it's not in half term.

    Live@edu (demo and comparison with Exchange would be nice), MS Security product lines. In these increasingly financially difficult times, demos or just awareness of freebie MS products would be nice to!

    Will have to see if I can get the day off, though whether the school would pay is another thing...... Any of those £8 a night hotels nearby!?
