Join us for an unforgettable day of Windows Server 2008 training and exploration.


This time we have several different tracks and training opportunities.


Lecture only (Morning)

We are offering places for over 100 people to join us and listen to David Hanna of Microsoft speak about Windows server 2008. He will be doing a 3 ½ hour end to end presentation on Server 2008 that will cover just about everything with plenty of time for demos and questions.


After lunch those who register for the labs will break into two rooms.


Track 1, Microsoft Training Lab (Afternoon) Microsoft is opening up their training room with 20 computers. They are planning to have the training lab open and available for us. They will have 5 or 6 Windows Server 2008 labs ready for folks to use.


Track 2, Virtual Load Fest (Afternoon)

We will be having a virtual load fest. Bring your own box and install Virtual PC. We will be loading Windows 2008 onto virtual machines. We will have over different 10 Step-by-Step labs for your use and enjoyment.

The labs and Virtual machines you will be able to take home and complete at the remaining labs at your leisure.


The Idea is to get OUT of the office for a day and to explore Windows Server 2008 (Longhorn), with other technical people.
