I have been briefing you earlier that soon after the Microsoft Tech.Ed India 2009, the heat still remains and moves on Roads. All Microsoft User Groups in India are now conducting miniTech.Ed tagged as “Tech.Ed on the Road”. Here is the time now that we announce you some brief insights on what and when is it happening?
On June 13th, 20th, or 27th User Groups in the following cities will be hosting the Tech.Ed on the Road event: Ahmedabad, Mumbai, Bangalore, Pune, Delhi, Chennai, Kerala, Kolkata, Hyderabad, Siliguri, Mandya / Mysore, Surat, Nepal, and Bangladesh. We will reveal the URL of all these user groups in next few days.
To give you a hint, these are the same sessions that were conducted at Tech.Ed and all those who were unable to attend due to any reasons, these are now coming towards you with no fees – only your participation is much valued. So take this opportunity in finding your nearest community.
Some of the technologies that will be showcased are Windows 7, Silverlight 3, ASP.Net 4.0 with Visual Studio 2010 for developers, and IT Pro topics such as Exchange Server 2010, Windows Server 2008 R2, Virtualization 360, SQL Server 2008, etc…
The event is squeezed into One day and so you will have lot to check out. That’s not all, Microsoft is helping encourage submission of information in localised languages. Taking this initiative forward to reach your local cities, user groups are encourage to take up this opportunity of delivering one of the session in your regional language. You may find some user groups actively participating in this initiative. Your support as being an audience / member of the user group in being involved is highly appreciated.
In case anyone is interested in participating in volunteering with your local user group or being a speaker at the event, you may email me ashwin [dot] kini [at] culminis [dot] com
