    EduGeek@Microsoft 24th Feb 2011

    OK Guys and girls, a date for your diary. We are to be hosted by Microsoft at their Reading campus, or TVP as they like to call it (homely!) for a day on the 24th Feb.
    There are spaces for 50 people, so it's first come, first served. Please start to indicate your inention to attend below. We'll get something better to handle the booking sorted out next week.

    As they have offered up the slots to the topics of our choice I'd thought I'd take advantage and suggest Office 365 and goodies from the Microsoft Labs as two sessions. Please feel free to suggest what we fill the other 4 sessions with. Please remember they ahve some world leading experts on Microsoft technologies there so it would be prudent to pick wisely.

    I'd be bang up for this one, whack me on the list please.

    Off the top of my head -

    live@edu - and whatever is in the pipeline there (overlaps with office 365 though).
    licensing changes - probably a bit dull
    Server 08 R2 & Win7 - getting the most out of them.

    We can include the new licensing scheme but it would be awfully dull though, and give the opportunity to ask Microsoft about really funky stuff I think we'd better pass on it, unless you want a licensing break out session perhaps (we also have a smaller room)?

    Intending to be there Day booked as Holiday - Thanks for the update Chris

    As for topics being discussed, I agree i think Office365 should be on the agenda as it's something i think alot of people are going to looking at going towards over the next year.

    I agree Live Labs would be another good choice, seeing what is ahead for the future.

    Is it worth maybe finding out more about Unified Communications and Collaberation, and maybe some more information on the Virtualization (Server and Desktop) aswell as AppV as i imagine some people still would prefer more information on how to use these kind of technologies?

    Maybe looking at how they have now used Direct Access (windows7 and server2008r2) ? (External Services)

    James.

    Interested!

    I'd second the suggestions about App-V, I've used it a bit and have found it extremely useful for software that has proved troublesome to deploy using traditional methods. Even if people aren't sold on the 'virtualise everything' concept (I know I'm not) I think more people would like to know about the option.
