#InnovateIT- UK IT Camps, new content, new events

The @TechNetUK #InnovateIT events are changing – Find out how and why.


One of the most noticeable differences between the ‘Old World’ and the new Mobile first, cloud first world of Microsoft is that the content rarely stays the same for more than a few months.

This rapidly changing theme has an impact everywhere, the products, the training courses, exam content and now to our very own @TechNetUK #InnovateIT IT Camps.

For the last six months we have been running a series of events with hands-on labs and audience participation covering What’s new in Windows 10 Enterprise, What’s new in Windows Server 2016 and What’s new in Cloud Infrastructure based on Azure Resource Manager templates.

Well, out with the old and in with the new we have three new areas of content with right up to date material and labs to use. Please note you still need to bring your own device to use the labs.

This device only needs to have internet access and a browser. A keyboard is highly recommended as the iPad / Tablet without keyboard experience is hard to use.

A screen size in excess of 8” is also recommended , especially if your eyes are as old and tired as mine are.

The new areas we are covering between March and July are:

The days takes the form of a mixture of lab exercises, demonstrations, presentations and useful group chats about areas of technology that will be key to most if not all businesses over the next few months and years.

This obviously keeps us in the @TechNetUk office on our toes in a technical learning way, which is good. It also means we can come around the country and pass on the latest greatest advances in the Microsoft world to you all.
