Are you prepared?!?
Windows Server 2012 was released to manufacturing (RTM) earlier this month: http://blogs.technet.com/b/windowsserver/archive/2012/08/01/windows-server-2012-released-to-manufacturing.aspx?Loc=zatfz_zTS1z&type=zEVz&media=zWCz&tech=zCLz&prod=zWSz
and will be launched on September 4th. Join us for the virtual launch event: http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/server-cloud/new.aspx?Loc=zatfz_zTS1z&type=zEVz&media=zWCz&tech=zCLz&prod=zWSz
In the mean time, I think the Jump Start content on Windows Server 2012 is a great place to start honing your technical skills: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/video/windows-server-2012-jump-start-01-core-hyper-v.aspx
and if you are looking to host your own launch event, you can start with the Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate Sneak Peek Ready-to-Go materials: https://readytogo.microsoft.com/en-us/_layouts/RTG/DownloadCampaign.aspx?CampURL=https://readytogo.microsoft.com/en-us/Campaign/Pages/Windows Server 2012 Release Candidate Sneak Peek.aspx&CheckAll=true
