Tech Ed Australia Kicks Booty Down Under

I've been chatting with Wayne Small, MVP from Down Under.

And he mentioned the butt-kicking pre-day event he's putting on for the Microsoft Tech Ed conference in Sydney Sept. 2nd.

Check out all the juicy details Here.

And get a summary of all the pre-day events on the Australian Tech Ed page at

One of the coolest additions to the agenda is a Student Day to introduce professional I.T. to the high school (morning) and university (afternoon) students. We need more of that!

Wayne's event is the Windows Essential Server System (SMB Day) event.

The SMB Day also features our good friends Robbie Upcroft and Dean Calvert. Festivities start with nibbles and registration at 7:30 AM and go through about 5:30 PM.

Then the big Tech Ed Welcome party is scheduled from 6:00 PM until "very late." Sounds like an Australian good time!

From the web site, here's a summary of What will you get out of it?
  • 300-LEVEL CONTENT - on Small Business Server 2008 and Windows Essential Business Server 2008 - Enterprise-class Server Solutions, designed and priced for SMBs.

  • DEMONSTRATIONS - will show the installation, set up, deployment and migration from previous versions, and updated features.

  • NETWORK WITH YOUR PEERS - at the premier event for Microsoft SBS partners this year.

  • ROUNDTABLE the issues, and gain tips for driving your business from your Peers, with extensive Partner-to-Partner content.

OH, I wish I were going to be there.

Plus, attendees get an okay-to-sell full version of SBS 2008.

Thanks for the info, Wayne.
