MVPDays Community Roadshow in Canada


The second annual MVPDays Community Roadshow wrapped up recently in Western Canada. The conference focused on IT Professionals sharing their knowledge with other IT Professionals, allowing local communities to learn more and advance their skills based on real world experiences.

MVPDays was the brainchild of Canadian Hyper-V MVP Dave Kawula, who was looking for a way to give back to the same community that helped teach and mentor him for years, leading to his success in the IT industry. Dave enlisted the assistance of his fellow MVPs to help deliver this highly successful community conference.

MVPDays was hosted in Vancouver, Calgary and Edmonton on September 21st, 23rd and 25th respectively. Across the three days, each event was focused on Cloud, IT Pro and Blackbelt topics. There were more than 50 sessions that ranged from Windows 10, PowerShell, Microsoft Azure, Virtualization, DevOps, Hyper-V and much more.

The successful roadshow featured a total of 23 MVPs—with 18 MVPs presenting and 5 MVPs volunteering—and reached more than 400 attendees!

 

Dave is planning to host an east coast version of the roadshow in early 2016. He is targeting Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal as the cities for the tour. Stay tuned for more details via Channel 9: https://channel9.msdn.com/Blogs/Interview-with-an-MVP and at http://www.mvpdays.com/

    Thanks, Dave, Super Crystal and the rest of the team!  Although the sessions were jammed a bit close to each other, and didn't leave much time to talk to the vendors, the break-out sessions were great.  I learned a lot, and I especially liked Phillip Elder's session on Virtualization Bottlenecks.  Hope you do it again next year!
