Edugeek @ Microsoft UK - Windows Education Workshop
Please download the full post attached; There is alot of important information about Server R2 and Windows 7 you might want to be aware off
Well after the early start on Friday Morning travelling down to Reading the day turned from me being very tired to being very pleased with the whole event.
Myself, Chris (Dos_Box), Ric (Ric_) attended the conference on behalf of Edugeek, the Turn-out was very good just over 50 attendees in the end I believe and I think most of them were Edugeek Members.
A few Edugeek Members sat with us through-out the conference, SoulFish, Robf, AngryITTechnician and GrumbleDook to name a few Thank You to you guys for showing your faces and for the great conversations.
The Whole day was very “geeky” with various employees from Microsoft Talking to everyone as well as Dave Coleman from Twynham School and Alan Richards from West Hatch School both talking about their experiences when Deploying Windows 7 in their schools.
Alan Richards was infact the first Person to Deploy Windows 7 Fully in a school in the UK (possibly worldwide) so well done to you!
After the conference itself a group of us or the Edugeek Crew as GrumbleDook calls it went out for a few drinks and a lovely meal courtesy of Dos_Box himself cheers for that! It was very nice J apart from GrumbleDook moaning all the way their because he has a very LARGE appetite ;-) poor bloke bet he was starving! Dribbling everywhere hehe.
After the meal we went back to the Hotel for more Drinks, and didn’t leave until around 1am thanks to everyone who stayed behind for a drink and a chat!
Dos_Box even brought me a “White Russian Cocktail” never had one before and it was very nice indeed!
Anyway I won’t go down that route! It was a great night well it was until it was time to go to sleep then I had to put up with Ric Snoring all bloody night ;-) going to buy myself some ear plugs next time!
