I haven’t blogged in a bit. I’ve been busy selling my house and moving. Now that I am moved and things are sort of back to normal, I hope to spend some more time back on the blog.
As the title of the post says, I am attending EnergizeIT. I got my hind end out of bed at 6:20, more or less cursing since the train left Kingston at 6:50 but I made the train with 5 minutes to spare. The train arrived in Toronto at 9:30. I got registered, sat down and then found David who also drove up from Brockville. The keynotes were okay, the topics were Secure Computing and Virtualization. Next was lunch, which was important since for me, it was the first meal of the day. Next up was a hands on lab on System Center, Garth Jones was procuring it.
While in there, I was interviewed by someone with Microsoft marketing about why I would take a 3 hour train ride to come to this event. Two reasons for me, the hands on labs and the networking opportunity. Even though it wasn’t live or not quite the scale of what Heather has been blogging about although it did have the boom microphone and such, I was still somewhat nervous as I usually prefer to be prepared for something like this, as today’s thing was off the cuff. Anyway, I am just catching a session in the main area on Exchange unified messaging since I finished the HOL early, but this is finishing up and it’s about time to go to the next hands on lab.
More to come.
