Oh – about 32,990 kms – based on the exact flight paths for a round trip from Ottawa – Vancouver – Auckland/New Zealand – Gold Coast/Australia – Sydney/Australia – Vancouver – Ottawa.
Based on my sessions I’ve presented at TechEd North America, contacts at the Australian and New Zealand editions reached out to see if I’d be interested in presenting down under. After much back and forth with internal policies, expense paperwork and convincing my Boss – we hammered out a deal.
How does this help with TechDays Content? Well – both conferences will have top notch content from top speakers from around the world. I’ll have the opportunity to evaluate sessions on Virtualization, Office365, Azure, client deployment, collaboration – you name it. I’ll be bringing the best from down under back up north to Canada as candidates to included in the Session Selection process that is already underway. Have a peek at the New Zealand catalogue and Australian catalogues to see what’s on. Leave your requests in the comments or send me at tweet with the #techdays_ca hashtag or drop me an email.
While I am not auditing sessions – I’ll be blogging on new announcements and cool stories / technologies from down under AND I’ve got some pre-blogged posts on some virtualization topics that are in the queue.
