I'll take contributions if you like, but I was really talking about Microsoft's upcoming events. You can register now, pay for them now, and attend them next year. So if you've got funds that go away at the end of 2008, look into these events:
- MMS 2009, April 27-May 1, Las Vegas. Registration is open at http://mms-2009.com/public/registrationoverview.aspx. There's a $320 discount if you register on or before March 24th.
- TechEd 2009, May 11-15, Los Angeles. Registration is now open, see http://www.msteched.com/teched/registration-info.aspx for the details. There's a $300 discount through December 31st.
You can bet there will be plenty of Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 coverage at both events. Agendas aren't yet finalized, but we expect to be covering MDT 2010 pretty heavily too.
