    Windows 7 (and Windows Server) briefing at Microsoft on 21st August (free, of course)

    Hi All,

    A quick note to pass on details of the event we're hosting at the Microsoft campus in Reading on 21st August. Maybe this shows "there is such a thing as a free lunch.

    It's a Windows 7 workshop, where you値l have the chance to hear about Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 and to explore what they mean for education. The agenda includes:
    - James O誰eill from our Developer and Platform Evangelist team
    - Richard Lane, one of our Account Technology Specialists
    - Gareth Hall, Windos Server 2008 R2 product manager for the UK
    - Asif Jinnah, who runs the Microsoft IT systems in the UK (he'll talk about what we've done internally)
    - Alan Richards (fellow EduGeeker who's rolling out this summer)
    - Dave Coleman (ditto!)

    We aim to explore how the new products launched this year can help you to streamline your ICT infrastructure and improve the ICT management and user experience. With Windows 7 available to existing School Agreement customers from the end of this week, and Windows Server 2008 R2 available from the 19th August, it seems like the perfect time to take a day out of school to understand how it fits into your future plans.

    There are already a number of schools planning to implement Windows 7 this summer, and so we hope to make the day as interactive as possible, with plenty of time for discussion with your peers from other schools, to compare notes and experiences (there will be schools attending who値l have implemented Windows 7 by the 21st, so hopefully they値l have practical advice for us all!)

    To allow for those making longer journeys, we値l start at 10am and finish by 3pm.

    Full details of the event are on this webpage

    Ooh, this is quite exciting. After following your blog for so long (and laughing at it so much), does this finally mean that I'm going to be in a position to peer through the anonymity-shield?
    I think I'd better keep it to myself though.

    Sadly there were a few who booked yesterday, so can't narrow it down yet

    can't change this one, but if there's enough demand, I can see what I can do. (The challenge is getting such a great line-up of speakers to travel on the same day).
