Usually I spend my time engaging with IT Pros at large scale events and user group meetings. I don't usually visit colleges or universities right now - it's something that I have been planning to do for a while, but I was lacking the proper introduction to someone responsible for such things.
Then that changed. A colleague of mine introduced me via email to Algonquin College and eventually to Nancy Côté (Student Support Coordinator - Computer Studies) who asked if I would be interested in presenting a session to students and faculty. We finally met up last week and nailed down a date for an event which has just been confirmed.
I am very excited to say that I will be presenting a session that I've entitled "Windows Vista - What's in it for me and what's in it for an enterprise?" at 10 AM on Tuesday April the 10th. I'll be pulling stuff from a variety of sessions I have done in the past in order to combine both a student/consumer side with some of the business value for enterprises. I wanted to try something a little different and I think this will fit the bill for some ideas I've had over the last while.
In addition to some of the demos I already have planned - I wanted to have this post up NOW so that individuals who might attend on the 10th can either post a comment here or click on the EMAIL link at the top of the page. I am very interested if there is anything that you are SPECIFICALLY interested in seeing or any questions you would like to have answered during the session. Click on the comments link at the end of the post and let your voice be heard.
I look forward to hearing from you and I look forward to visiting Algonquin College.
