The TechNet Springboard Tour – free event in Reading on 1st November

The Microsoft Springboard team, based at our headquarters in Seattle, create really good content on TechNet to help you to understand and deploy our latest technologies. In a way, they are a network manager's best friend, because they provide useful web guides that provide step-by-step processes for things like Windows 7 deployment.

At last, they're hitting the road, and coming out to join us in Europe, with a free event in Reading on the 1st November. If you're looking for a single day when you can rapidly get up to speed on deploying our latest products  included in your School Agreement - Office 2010, Windows 7 and the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack - then this is for you.

imageAt the five-hour workshops you will:

  • Learn about Office 2010 IT investments.
  • Learn about key deployment strategies for Windows 7 and the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack.
  • See the opportunities for training and certification in these key products.
  • Learn why Windows 7 has received rave reviews from IT organizations and is setting records as the fastest selling operating system in history.
  • Gain a clear understanding of the tools, tips and tricks you need now to jumpstart the successful deployment and management of your Windows desktop environment today.
  • Meet and network with members of the Windows and Office US Product Teams, as well as local Microsoft Technology Evangelists for technical training, professional networking, and real world guidance
