Time moves quickly!  Hard to believe that we are only a few weeks away from the first TechDays 2011 event in Toronto on October 25/26.  We’ve been busy getting the content ready and are working with a great group of subject matter experts from Microsoft, our Partners, the MVP community and your peers to deliver some of the best content we have ever put together!

I’m really excited to let you know that in Vancouver on November 15th, Scott Hanselman , Principal Program Manager Lead on the Software and Tools Team at Microsoft will be delivering the keynote address, showing developers how that can leverage the Microsoft platform to create great applications for the client, web, phone. 

We are also excited that in Toronto, on October 25th, we will have Jeff Woolsey , Principal Program Manager Lead on the Hyper-V team deliver the keynote address where he will talk about Microsoft’s virtualization and Private Cloud strategy for organizations of all sizes.  This is a not-to-be missed opportunity to hear first-hand how your organization can leverage Microsoft’s virtualization technologies to help streamline your IT infrastructure today and in the future.

But TechDays is not just about the keynote — it’s about all the great sessions that help you to grow your technical skills, and this year is no exception.  We have some phenomenal sessions submitted by your peers, as well as others on technologies that you told us are important to you.  Check out the session list bring rolled out on the TechDays web site in several waves with the final session list published by mid-October.   Don’t forget to also go to the TechDays YouTube channel to learn more about what you can expect from the TechDays 2011 Content Leads themselves.
