It’s the time of year with conferences and User Group community events are in full swing. TechDays is just around the corner but that’s not the only thing happening in the next couple of months. Based on your feedback, we’re working with the community to bring you a new event format called “IT Pro Camps”.

IT Pro Camps will be a highly-interactive, in-person learning event for IT Pros seeking professional development as it applies to Microsoft products and technologies (Data Center, Virtualization, Cloud)as well as a great opportunity to connect with your peers. The camp takes an informal “un-conference” approach, with a focus on hands on learning and audience participation. This approach ensures you will come away with some very real learning that you can apply to your job immediately.

We have 4 confirmed dates so far (with more on the way):

-Oct. 24 Toronto

-Nov. 1 Ottawa

-Nov. 14 Vancouver

-Nov. 28 Montreal

Registration links will be live soon and will be available at the TechNet Events Calendar , where you can find other Microsoft and community events from all across Canada. Be sure to check the calendar regularly for the IT Pro Camps and other events that will continue your learning and give you the opportunity to connect with others in the IT industry.
