After prolonged and interesting discussions with Microsoft Learning, I’m going to pitch in and help out with their upcoming career day conference on November 18 (two weeks from today, in fact). My role will be to attend online, and blog to report on what’s going on, and to hold three different one-hour chat sessions to answer questions and provide information and advice from a non-MS “help your career” perspective. MCPs and students enrolled at a recognized higher learning program (usually based on their email addresses AFAIK) can get half of the conference’s $55 registration fee waived with corresponding proof of one or the other (visit the link in the first sentence of this blog to get all the details).
What’s interesting about this 24-hour, round-the-clock training and cert extravaganza is that everything is going to be recorded and will remain available to attendees for the foreseeable future. As far as I can tell, this is a lot of potentially interesting and useful content for a very little money. That’s why I’ve decided to chip in and help out, and why I hope you’ll attend yourself, and let your friends, colleagues, co-workers, and family members know about it too. See you there online!
