It’s Saturday and we are busy in the lab. This is a tough day – first the 3rd written exam and then the Qualification Lab!
It has been a good week with topics like Edge, Load Balancer, Architecture Case Study, Operations & Troubleshooting, Tools and Application Integration.
Adrian hosted a Meet the OCS Master reception and had invited component PM’s, UC Marketing, UA (the folks who write our product documentation) and MS Learning. There was a good turn out and the OCG Corporate VP Gurdeep Singh Pall was also kind enough to stop by to meet the OCS Masters.
The Microsoft Certified Master team has started their own blog at http://blogs.technet.com/themasterblog/default.aspx. There are some good blog entries on what it is like to go through a master rotation. Worth reading.
Adrian and his team from MS Learning have done an excellent job with the alpha rotation. As always with an alpha there are some things, which can be changed to improve future rotations, but I believe that all of the participants feel they have had a great time.
I would like to thank the PM’s from OCG and Exchange, who have helped us review the material, answered numerous questions and in some cases stopped by the rotation and helped out. A special Thank You also goes to my colleagues Sasa, Jérôme, Tom and John who helped a lot with review of the material and answering questions.
This will be the final report from the OCS Master alpha rotation. It has been 3 hard weeks, but also very rewarding. After having been through it I’m glad I was able to participate. However I’m looking forward to go back to my wife and sons and continue my real life 🙂
