I’ll be attending TechEd North America 2011 in Atlanta, GA this year. As an IT Professional, I’m looking forward to all the sessions and networking to be had. (P.S. If you’re a vendor in the SMB space and will be at TechEd, send me an e-mail. (tom at tomontech dot com) I’m always looking for new things and would love to meet up.)
I’ll be attending the 2011 Imagine Cup Worldwide Finals in New York, New York this year. The Imagine Cup is an incredible event, with students from all over the world coming together and showing of technological solutions to some of the world’s toughest problems.
If you’re reading this, it means that I have arrived in Seattle, Washington for the 2011 Microsoft Student Insider kickoff and 2011 Microsoft Most Valuable Professional Summit.
Over the next eight days, I’ll be meeting with various product groups, meeting new people, and hopefully gathering information that I can share with you my readers. (Might be tough, as both events are covered under Non-Disclosure Agreements.)
I don’t have a schedule yet for the Student Insider kickoff, but will have one in the morning, and as I know more, you’ll know more.
For MVP Summit, I’ll be meeting with the Windows Home and Small Business Server team as well as attending some fun sessions to learn some new things.
I’ll be taking lots of pictures over the next few days, and will have a link posted to a photo gallery as soon as the first batch of photos are uploaded.
I’ll be in Seattle February 23rd-March 3rd for Microsoft Student Insider stuff and the 2011 Microsoft MVP Summit. I’ll be taking my new SLR digital camera with me and taking lots of pictures, so look for those over the course of those eight days.
Please join me in welcoming the following to the Student Insider program for 2011:
- Den Delimarsky –@denniscode – dennisdel.com – Den is what I consider a Windows Phone Ninja. He knows the platform inside and out and blogs about it extensively on his own website and on DreamInCode.
- Drew Devault – @sircmpwn – sircmpwn.blogspot.com – Drew is an XNA and Silverlight wizard (and he’s still in high school!)
- Billy O’Neal – @MalwareMiniGun – winwrench.com
- Steven Nowak (Don’t have any blog or Twitter handle for Steven yet. When I do I’ll update this.)
MVP summit content is covered under the Non-Disclosure Agreement, so I’m not able to talk about what I’ll be doing there, other than to say that I’ll be meeting with the Home and Small Business Server team at various points through out the week. If you have any questions that you want me to try to answer, feel free to leave them in the comments.
