I meant to post this a couple of weeks ago when the registration links went live, but I totally forgot to do it.
I did want to let everyone know that we have some upcoming TechNet Events in Arizona and Southern California slated for the month of September. The content is on Windows 7 Deployment. The two sessions are:
Can We Bust This Myth? “It’s impossible to upgrade a Windows XP computer to Windows 7”
In this fun and interactive session we’ll look at different ways to move your Windows XP machine to Windows 7, keeping user data and settings in place, and ensuring the required applications are installed in the process. We’ll look at the different methods available to help with this daunting task. Will the MYTH be busted? Can it be done in under 75 minutes? Of course it can, that’s why we’re having this session!
Automate your Windows 7 deployment using the MDT 2010
You don’t just have a handful of machines to deploy, you have hundreds. And, you want to be able to automate your Windows 7 deployment. The Microsoft Deployment Toolkit offers a configuration database that allows methodological automation of deployment configurations based on a number of criteria, allowing you to configure the automatic assignment of properties based on the target computer location, make and model, and computer values. You can also assign Roles to those methods that contain further configurations. In this session we’ll take a deeper look that how we can use this capability in the MDT 2010 and simplify your organizations deployments.
Following are the three cities I’ll be presenting in along with the dates and times.
Check-in begins at 8 AM and you don’t need to bring the confirmation page with the bar code since I don’t use that anyways. Ignore the start time on the registration page since it states 7:30 AM and the Microsoft Offices don’t open until 8 AM. I will be there early, but I won’t start until 8:30 AM.
PS: If you look on the left navigation bar of my blog, you will see that I’ve added in links for upcoming events that do include these three.
