The academic event at SAIT Polytechnic was attended by students and faculty wanting to hear about the ICT industry and learn a little about technologies like Windows 7 and Windows Azure. We had a lot of great questions and we able to share some information about our programs. (Check out http://students.energizeit.ca/ for more information!)
In the evening, we met with members of the user group community in Calgary at Cardel Theatre. (A great venue, just a bit off the beaten path.) We had about 75 folks show up to hear us talk a little about technologies like application compatibility in Windows 7, Windows Server 2008 R2, DirectAccess, and BranchCache. Here, we had a lot of questions about BranchCache. I, being the developer, played the role of Oprah and passed the mic around for questions about its implementation.
Overall, it was a very good day. Tomorrow brings our EnergizeIT event (from the Client to the Cloud). We'll see you there!
