The last day of 2009 is an awesome time to prepare for MMS 2010
The Microsoft Management Summit is the best conference on Earth (I’ve not checked the one’s on Mars yet, so I can’t speak to that). MMS has always been the best place to catch up on System Center products, attend labs, and develop friendships and networking contacts to help you manage your environment. The cool thing is – myITforum has been part of MMS since the very beginning. If you want to learn about that, drop out to the MMS Wiki and read all about it and even grab the RSS feed:
During my talks at MMS, I ask the same question each year: “How many people are familiar with myITforum?”
In the early days, even with smaller attendance numbers, the majority of people did not know about myITforum. These days, even with the larger attendance numbers (i.e., 3,000 or 4,000 people), the majority of people know about myITforum and use its services daily.
With our long history with MMS, its should be no surprise that we also provide many services in conjunction with MMS. So, this post is kind of a reminder for all of you that:
- myITforum is the place to go for MMS 2010 information, and
- Its time to start thinking about getting approval to attend MMS 2010, if you haven’t already.
We have a couple docs to help you justify your attendance for MMS 2010. You basically just grab these docs, tailor them to your own needs, and send them off to your manager for approval. These docs are a sure-fire way to be able to attend MMS, meet the myITforum folks (System Center community), and become part of a System Center tradition.
Here’s the docs:
