The Ultimate Event, Sweden, October–Do not Miss this!

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on September 2, 2013

T-bana-IntroMarkJohanMikael

(In Swedish)

Kollegor, vänner, det är nu det händer. I oktober månad åker Jag(Mikael Nystrom), Johan Arwidmark och Mark Minasi ut på en turné, vi kommer att besöka Malmö, Göteborg, Stockholm, Umeå och sist men inte minst Oslo. Denna gång ger vi oss ut med ett demo mania kring Windows Server 2012 R2, Windows 8.1 och System Center 2012 R2. Vi har sedan I våras vridit, vänt, lekt, testat och nu vill vi att DU ska förstå vad som är fantastiskt och vad som kanske inte var helt genomtänkt. Vi kommer att lägg ner tid på både klienten men också server och datacenter hantering, det blir lagom med deployment och lagom med management. Att sedan Mark Minasi följer med är inte bara roligt för vår egen skull, Mark är helt klart en av dom bästa föreläsare som finns, underhållande och kompetent. Det finns en risk att eventet blir fullbokat, särskilt när den här affischen sitter uppe I Stockholms tunnelbana!

Windows Server 2012 – December Roadshow in Sweden and Denmark

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on November 22, 2012

Friends, it is time for we to travel around in Sweden and also stop by in Copenhagen to show you as much I can around Windows Server 2012.

I will spend time on Hyper-V, Storage, DataDeDuplication, SMB 3.0, IPAM, PowerShell, VDI, Remote Desktop and Windows Server 2012 Server Deployment and then some… The special about this roadshow is that the agenda is my own based on the Fun-and-Cool factor, it is what most of you would classify as a “Community Roadshow” and that means a special thanks goes to friends in Copenhagen (Coretech), Stockholm (LabCenter), Göteborg (IT Hantverkarna) and finally Borlänge (ICT).

So if you hope for a full day of PowerPoint

The event is free but seats are limited so you need to sign up now!

Windows Server 2012 Community Roadshow–In Sweden

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on June 2, 2012

Windows 2012 Roadshow

Yes, it is true. The Windows Server 2012 Community Roadshow is touching down in Sweden and guess who is running the show, well as you might have guessed it is me (of course)

So, if you would like to know more about Windows Server 2012 this could be something for you. The cost is none since it is sponsored by HP, Dell and for some reason Microsoft. I will be in Stockholm, Gothenburg and Malmoe “soon”

What will we cover?, well first of all we will run the demos on Windows Server 2012 RC (or later) and we will focus on Hyper-V, Storage, Network and Powershell (still working on trying to create as much script as can so I have some real useful scripts to show you)

I know the seats are limited so I’ll guess you should reserve a spot for your self as soon as possible.

You might like to now when, well. That is easy:

Malmoe 2012-06-18
Gothenburg 2012-06-19
Stockholm 2012-06-20

 

So, just go ahead, sign up here

Roadshow – Microsoft days (September 2011 in Sweden)

Posted by Mikael Nystrom on August 25, 2011

In September I’ll do a Roadshow here in Sweden (yes, the language will be Swedish)

It will be a full day of Windows Server, Client and management around these. It will also contain things like Windows Intune and System Center Suite. During the day we will cover things like Server Manager, Powershell, Active Directory, Hyper-V, Remote Desktop, File , Print , Failover Cluster, OpsMgr, ConfigMgr, WSUS, Event Viewer, WinRM/WinRS, Opalis, Virtual Machine Manger, Backup, Windows Intune and tools around all this.

During the day we will focus on how to build and manage a modern datacenter based on Microsoft Windows, how to make it easer day-by-day, how to save time and money and how to leverage things you already have but don’t know about. One thing that could be worth mentioning here is that this is more about educating customers then selling things. In other words it will not be a standard roadshow with sales people doing PowerPoint by death….

My best guess is that you don’t want to miss this…

(and since this a Microsoft the cost is…nothing)

If you want to attend or read more in detail, here are the links:

19 of September 2011 – Stockholm
20 of September 2011 – Gothenburg
21 September 2011 – Malmoe
22 September 2011 – Sundsvall
