Introducing Windows 7 – What’s New – Stephen Rose

Windows 7 – Diving Deeper – Direct Access and RAS Features – Joe Davies

Joe Davies writes the “Cable Guy” articles for Technet Magazine. He is a networking gearhead with the ability to make even complex networking features easy to understand. Joe recently delivered a very well received session at one of the local user groups here in Redmond and has been asked back to do more. If you want to know about networking in Windows, Joe Knows!

If you have ever been to the Technet Edge site, you have probably seen David Tesar on a screen/wecast or two. David is one of several corporate IT Evangelist and one of his specialties is Internet Explorer. He also blogs actively under the moniker of Extreme on the Technet Blogs site.

Migrating Windows XP to Windows 7: Get it done! – Jeremy Chapman

Jeremy Chapman “wrote the book” on XP to Windows 7 migration internally here at Microsoft. In fact he wrote the session that us in the field will be delivering at many of the Windows 7 events you will see cropping up around the country in coming months.

Windows 2008 R2 – Diving In! – Chris Avis

I will be delivering the closing session on Windows 2008 R2. I only get a little more than an hour so i will be focusing on demos around new features in IIS, Branch Networking, Anywhere Access, management Enhancements, and Data Protection improvements.

Look forward to seeing you there!
