We had a very well attended roadshow event in Edinburgh earlier in the year, but the truth is we don’t hold as many events outside Reading and London as we’d like to. I’m going to be doing some of the organizational stuff on the next roadshow so I’ll probably have a list of reasons why we prefer to stay in Reading.
I mentioned Andy Malone last week and he’s delivered some technet events for us in Scotland. Andy’s (fairly new) blog has details of a technology roadshow event he’s running. This isn’t an official Microsoft event, but still looks well worth attending. Last time I talked to him he was telling me how pleased he was to reactions he had for the last event, so all the signs are that this will be worth going to. The technologies he’s covering will be Vista, Longhorn server and Exchange 2007. We’re going to be talking about a lot of the detail of Longhorn server for the first time in public at Tech-ed, and to the best of my knowledge Andy will be the first person to cover this ground in the UK. So for once Scotland gets the information first.
