Hi I’m Christian Beauclair, Senior Developer Advisor at Microsoft Canada. Talking with developers across Canada, we heard clearly that in today’s ever-changing economic climate as a developer, you are tasked with finding new ways to increase productivity, reduce costs, and help your organization move forward. We’ve also heard loud and clear it is a challenge keeping up with technology, flexibility is the key and you are looking for a solution, not just technology to meet your needs. We know that developers bring the magic of software to life and we want to ensure that we are supporting you.
It’s my role to ensure that we support you in understanding the possibilities of what technology can do to help you deliver on real-world solutions. That’s why we created the Energize IT Program. Energize IT is about showing you what’s possible from a solution perspective, connecting you with your peers while highlighting what others are doing in an effort to support you and your organization.
Next week, we will be announcing EnergizeIT program details, including registration options to our complementary event series to MSDN Flash newsletter subscribers. If you are not a subscriber, I’d encourage you to subscribe here today! This year’s focus is on how you can leverage the Microsoft platform to help satisfy business requirements while increasing IT and end-user productivity. Through Energize IT: From the Client to the Cloud events that are being scheduled in cities across Canada , along with webcasts, our team will show you how to take advantage of the Microsoft-based platform to help your organization navigate the choppy waters of the current reality, and help provide guidance on how to get there.
You will learn how to help reduce capital costs while increasing scalability through Microsoft’s Client and Cloud approach of bringing together the best aspects of Software and the best aspects of the Internet - Software+Services. We’ll also show you the value and potential of the new Microsoft Office 2010 platform, including SharePoint 2010, to take the way you work to the next level, and how to develop the next generation of applications, both on premise and for the Cloud, using Visual Studio 2010. You will see how the power of the Microsoft platform can help you as a developer form a solution perspective.
Subscribe to the MSDN Flash newsletter today to be the first to hear about the free EnergizeIT program offerings.
I look forward to connecting with you in the near future,
Senior Developer Advisor, Microsoft Canada Inc.
