I'm John Oxley, Director of Community Evangelism at Microsoft Canada, and I'm really excited to let you know Tech·Days is back to bring you the most current technical training on all new Microsoft-based technologies. We’re visiting seven cities this fall: Vancouver (September 14/15); Toronto (September 29/30); Halifax (November 2/3); Calgary (November 17/18); Montreal (December 2/3); Ottawa (December 9/10); and Winnipeg (December 15/16), and we invite you to register today .

As a loyal Flash subscriber, I would personally like to offer you an exclusive, limited-time ticket price of just $249* until July 1, 2009—that’s a savings of more than half the regular $599 ticket price!

We’re still ironing out all the details for this year’s event right now, and you can be guaranteed this year’s Tech·Days is still all about helping you:

- Learn the technology—with a customizable agenda from over forty skill-strengthening sessions across five technical tracks, so you get the knowledge you’re looking for on the hottest new products, like Windows® 7, and Microsoft® Exchange 2010;

- Connect with Experts and Peers—with Birds-of-a-Feather lunches and the new Lounge for Windows 7, you’ll have lots of opportunities share your ideas with those who know the products best; and

- Apply what you learn—with a Learning Kit packed with products and resources, so you can continue to grow your skills long after the event has finished.

This is a great opportunity to build your skills for the future-so buy your tickets now and reference this code TDDIRVIP to take advantage of the $249* limited time offer. And if you have some friends whom you think would enjoy this year's event, just pass on the promo code and they'll receive the same low price, only until July 1, 2009.

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact me . Also, stay updated with the Twitter hashtag (#techdays_ca). I look forward to seeing you there!
