Ed Tittel to volunteer career & cert Q&A sessions at MCCC 2/17/2011, Microsoft Certified Career Conference 2 to be held 2/17/2010, second MCCC scheduled for 2/17/2011
When last I heard from Microsoft Learning before the holidays about the second and upcoming Microsoft Certified Career Conference (aka MCCC) the date had not been set, and for some reason February 20 stuck in my mind. Wrong! I just visited the current registration page and it’s happening on Thursday, February 17. Mark your calendars, and think about registering if you’re at all interested in MS IT Certifications (discounts are available to students and MCPs or better, and overall costs are pretty low: it was $55 last time with 50% off for the aforementioned constituencies). Likewise, if you have friends or family who are interested in working in IT you may want to share this info with them as well.
I’m volunteering to run another couple or three 1-hour Q&A sessions at the upcoming conference, just like I did last time around. We were very busy chatting during all of these sessions, and this time I’m trying to recruit some other IT Certification heavies to help out with the traffic.
Of all the online conferences I’ve ever attended (which must be dozens by now), the MCCC is among the best built and easiest to use of any of them. I recommend this event highly, and since they’re not paying me to participate, I’m also happy to say I’ll be putting my time where my mouth was, since there’s no money in it for me!
