Midwest Management Summit Kicks Off in Just Over a Month

When Microsoft decided to end the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) after an extremely successful 10-plus year run, the community that had been built around the event was left homeless. Microsoft promised to do a good job integrating MMS alumni into TechEd, but failed – even after soliciting boardroom feedback from MMS alumni in Redmond. Microsoft tried again with Microsoft Ignite this year, but that event seemed to be the nail in the coffin for many, forcing refugees to start looking elsewhere for adequately managed and deeper technical learning events.

DevOps – PowerShell in a Continuos Integration pipeline

Also I might have missed a couple of steps here because of time constraints. Enjoy the recording and comments are obviously most welcome.

Get MMS right at home every month…making your own user group!

Last year at the Midwest Management Summit 2014 one of my overall favorite and most useful sessions to attend was the Get MMS Right at Home every month! session (pptx). It was basically a ‘how to create your own user group’ session. As a proud member of LouPOSH and now co-founder of LouSMUG, I love user groups! I find they are one of the best ways to give back to the community and get to know your peers. I took about a page of notes in this session and have implemented a lot of the suggestions in the local user groups I am a member of. These notes have been buried in my notebook since November, and after a few longstanding requests I am posting them for all to share. Post everywhere You can get a free Office 365 website!
