We are getting closer and closer to the first TechDays 2010 event in Vancouver on Sept 14-15 .  Many folks have asked what they can expect to learn at TechDays 2010.  There is something for everyone. 

We have an entire track with great sessions where you will learn the tips and tricks of deploying Windows 7, Office 2010, Office Web Apps, and more, as well as how to troubleshoot when things go awry.  The Collaboration: The Next Generation track has sessions on migrating to SharePoint 2010 as well as Exchange 2010, and how to help protect the content in these critical business applications, to name a few.  You will also learn how to take advantage of Microsoft-based development tools and good development practices and procedures to optimize the development and testing of your applications.  Finally, you will learn how to effectively use virtualization in a variety of scenarios, help protect your infrastructure, and tricks on how to make Active Directory work for you. 

You can check out all of the 50+ sessions and their abstracts  here.   Remember to click on each track to see all the sessions.  You can even create your own customized agenda of TechDays 2010 sessions from any of the tracks allowing you to tailor the learning experience to your unique needs.   To create your own agenda, go  here and sign in with your Windows LiveID to start building your schedule.  If you have not yet registered for TechDays, you can do that too and then build your agenda.

One more thing...there are six tracks at TechDays 2010 but you will notice that www.techdays.ca/sessions only lists sessions in 5 of them.  The Local Flavours track and its content is up to you and your peers!  We are looking for passionate individuals (developers, IT professionals, designers, IT architects, etc.) to submit their session ideas by going here.  Please download both documents, fill out the submission form with your great session idea and email to us at td_can@microsoft.com

TechDays 2010 is shaping up to be the best yet.  Please visit  here for more information or to register and take advantage of the Early Bird rate of $349.99 plus tax - (about 50% off the full conference fee of $699.99).
