Saturday I’m leaving for the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) in Las Vegas. This is one of the biggest Management events in world for for IT Pro’s. This year my main focus will be on Configuration Manager 2007, Microsoft Deployment (MDT 2010) and Windows 7 Deployment.

First thing on the agenda was the Keynote… As usual Bob Muglia was doing this presentation. I don’t want to go into any details about the keynote or the sessions. But if I say the keynote was both predictable and a bit boring I don’t think I’ll offend anyone. Better luck next year 🙂 My first real session was “What’s new in SP1 in ConfigMgr”. Not a “tech sexy” topic, but I think Wally did a good job. The focus was on Asset Intelligence 1.5 and the Intel AMT feature (Out of band management). After lunch I went to a…

Today the Microsoft TechEd 2008 North America starts. What we traveled half around the globe to attend had finally begun. Monday was Pre-Conference day. I attended the “Deploying and Managing a System Center Configuration Manager 2007 Environment” with Wally Mead as speaker. He started by telling us that we properly wouldn’t be able to complete the content of the session within the 7 hours available for the pre-conference 🙂 During the first half of today’s pre-conference, we was continually disturbed by the noise from the KeyNote practice. Loud bongo drums, and a hysteric woman that were yelling, for literally hours,…

I knew yesterday was going to be exciting, but it went beyond my imagination. We left the Hampton Inn in Fort Lauderdale at 8 am. We drove south, heading for the Tamiami trail (route 41).The first stop was the “Shark Vally Visitor Center”. At the entrance we saw the first amazing animal. I have no idea what the turtle is called, but check out these pictures: At the parking lot we saw this little fellow: Baby aligators… Cute…! The adult aligators…   And a lot of amazing birds.   We arrived at the hotel in Orlando 10 pm last night.…

Yesterday was amazing… We actually managed to spend more than 9 hours of non-stop shopping. Not even my wife can beat that 🙂 We got a lot of cool stuff, and to a very good prize… When you live i Europe, almost everything is about 50% off.   Today we are heading for Orlando. We plan to drive through the Everglades National Park. The largest subtropical wilderness in the United States, visited by more than one million people each year. This is how our trip is planned, and hopefully we’ll arrive at our hotel in Orlando around 8 pm tonight.
