Updated Schedule / Instructions: 24 Hours In The Cloud

We're getting down to the wire with the big "24 Hours in the Cloud" event. Starts June 1 at 9:00 AM Pacific and goes on for 24 hours. One webinar per hour.

The GITCA web site is impossible to traverse and doesn't work with browsers other than Internet Explorer. So here's how you can view these sessions.

I've posted the updated times, presenters, and session titles below. The timetable with longer descriptions is here:

Speaker information is here:

Note: There is no registration for this event.
So don't log in. Don't sign up. Don't confuse yourself by trying to register.

On the day of the event, simply go to and watch the presentation. If you want to ask questions, go to Twitter and follow hashtag #24hitC.

If you're not a Twitter Geek, here's an easy way to follow the discussion:

1) Go to

2) Click on the 1 X 2 option

3) Use the left side to play in case you get bored. On the right side type #24hitC and click Search.

4) If you want to join the discussion or ask a question, just send a tweet with that hashtag. For example: "Where do I buy SBS Essentials? #24hicC"

You can also follow the 24 Hours in the Cloud folks on Twitter at @24hitC.
