Microsoft Live Virtualization Chat
Join us in a live chat with Edwin Yuen, Microsoft Virtualization expert, TODAY, March 31st from 11:00 am to 3:00 pm EST. The chat is now open.
New Xbox Contest Announcement
Now through the end of April, you can not only show off your IT skills by asking and answering questions on ITKnowledgeExchange.com, but you can earn the chance to spend some quality time honing your bad-guy-vaporizing skills on your very own Xbox 360.
Through April 30th, you have a chance to win one of three Xbox 360 consoles. The winners will be the top 3 community members who have the most Knowledge Points earned and have asked 5 IT-related questions (you still earn Knowledge points for asking questions) during the contest period. Visit the blog post for full details on the prizes and contest rules.
We’re on LinkedIn!
We’ve recently created an IT Knowledge Exchange LinkedIn group. If you are a member of LinkedIn, come and join the group. You can network with your fellow members and continue the discussion. Visit the group here.
