Me and Christian Knarvik my colleague (and co-writer @ this blogg) attended TechEd Europe 2013 which was hosted in Madrid this year.
For those that do not know. TechEd is Microsoft’s premiere event for IT Professionals and Enterprise Developers and has lots of great stuff like ands-on learning, deep product exploration, and last bot not least opportunities to build relationships with the community of Microsoft experts and peers.
We started of on Monday and both took an exam(Microsoft offers 50% off). Christian passed his 70-341:Core Solutions of Microsoft Exchange Server 2013 and I passed the 70-243:Administering and Deploying System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Exam. We celebrated by using the great Surface offer we got from Microsoft.
I already received my Surface Pro and am still waiting on the RT. Kodus to Microsoft for fast shippment.
Just love the the Surface and will soon be posting some posts about windows 8.1
Microsoft also released previews of the next version of the “Cloud OS”. There are new releases for both the Server OS, the System Center suite, SQL and Windows Azure. Evaluation versions are now available on MSDN and TechNet.
