From March 21st until March 25th the Microsoft Management Summit 2011 is running in Las Vegas, Nevada in the good old US of A. I’d love to go and I had considered finding a way to do so but the amount of chaos at work have left me on rather unfavorable position and a mountain of issues to deal with. So I’m not going to get there at the moment. To bad, but there will be other opportunities.
For all those of you who are lucky enough to get to MMS 2011 or are still considering going (you should if & when you can). You’ll find great technical education and knowledge to be gathered. Also, and very important to me, are the networking opportunities and community interaction providing a platform to discuss technology with peers and colleagues. The proximity and availability of access to Microsoft and industry IT management experts is awesome. One of the things they did get right at Tech Ed Europe 2010 by the way in Berlin last year. I’ve blogged before on why I attend tech conferences, if you’re wondering what it’s all about you can read that here Why I Find Value In A Conference
I know a bunch of people who are going and who I would have enjoyed talking IT shop with but it just isn’t going to work out for 2011. The good news is the info will be passed along and the buzz can be felt through streaming, social media & blogs.
