Microsoft New Zealand 2008 Summer Roadtrip

By Mauricio Freitas, in , posted: 11-Dec-2007 15:06

As many of you know we are already running Geekzone on Microsoft Windows Server 2008 (RC0) as part of an early adopter programme.

Microsoft New Zealand has started planning the launch activites for Microsoft Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008 and Microsoft SQL Server 2008. These activities include a "2008 Summer Roadtrip".

Chris Auld and Jeremy Boyd are going to be touring the country showing off all the stuff in Windows Server (Virtualisation, IIS, etc), SQL Server (File Stream, Spatial data types & queries, etc) and Visual Studio (LINQ, CSS designers, etc).  In each location they will be joined by a local speaker.

These are the dates:

  • Auckland – Feb 4
  • Tauranga – Feb 5
  • Hamilton – Feb 7
  • New Plymouth – Feb 8
  • Hawkes Bay – Feb 11
  • Palmerston North – Feb 12
  • Wellington – Feb 13
  • Nelson – Feb 14
  • Christchurch – Feb 15
  • Dunedin – Feb 18
  • Invercargill - Feb 19

    If you are available in any of these dates, come in for more information on these platforms and tools. Darryl's got more information on his MSDN blog.

  • PS. When you register you enter the draw to win one of two server hardware, Windows Home Server software and more. And you get another entry in the draw if you invite a friend.
