The end of last month was very busy for us.
On Wednesday October 29 I had a small part in the Winning with Windows Vista Webinar facilitated by Satish Kanwar and Matt Wolodarsky who is a product manager with Microsoft Canada.
Matt speaks about a new program for small businesses is being introduced here in Canada called the Vista Small Business Assurance Program. The program will provide one-on-one free high level support for new Vista users.
I spent a little time focused on how we Microsoft Partners can augment our Windows Vista skills and develop a passion for the product by knowing its feature set. One way to do that is to get Windows Vista Software Assurance and tack on the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack for our small I.T. company. Check out the Webinar for more info.
You can download the Webinar after logging onto the Microsoft Event's Web site.
The second Webinar that I participated was on Thursday October 30: SBS 2008 Setup Webinar.
With Harry Brelsford, my co-author for our upcoming SBS 2008 Blueprint book, we ran through an SBS 2008 setup from start to nearly finished. The setup was without an Answer File so everyone could see what the setup routine would look like.
While the install was running we fielded lots of questions from attendees ... and there were a lot of you! :)
Thank you for the great questions, and especially to those who challenged me on some mistakes that I had made in what I did or said!
All in all, the SBS 2008 Setup Webinar was a blast ... even with the stalled VM at the beginning.
Check it out. We had a blast, and judging by all of the feedback we received once the Webinar completed, so did a lot of you that listened live.
Hopefully we will have a few more Webinars in the coming months. I am certainly looking forward to it!
