Back from MMS 2011
Back from MMS 2011 in Las Vegas and somehow managed to catch a cold and even lost my voice this morning. Did I mention already, that I hate all those air-conditions? However that gives me some time to prepare and publish the source code of a couple of the web service demos I gave. I will publish a blog post per upload so that they are easier to find and I can also add some explanation.
I just wanted to take the opportunity and give a big Thank you to Johan Arwidmark, Mikael Nyström and Kenneth van Surksum. It was great fun preparing and giving sessions with such experienced speakers and I would be happy to be able to repeat that next year . Johan somehow managed to publish all his session from MMS at his new page DeploymentResearch. If you haven’t had a look at it yet, make sure you give it a try as it contains another couple dozen videos about Deployment related topics plus he will also use this as his main blog for the future (It was really time to replace DeployVista, wasn’t it?).
And as I’m doing some marketing already, I just saw that Johan and Mikael are about to do one of their great “Deployment Roadshows” through a couple of cities in Europe. On May 11th they will be in Munich. If you have the time, be sure to attend. Those two will just rock the stage. And if you attend, please ask Mikael to wear his pink bunny suit .
Finally I just wanted to say it was a lot of fun and a good opportunity to put some faces to the names and it was also a great experience. I learned a lot and got a lot of feedback especially on the Deployment Web Service and the MDT Web FrontEnd that will have some impact on the upcoming versions. Yes, there will be new versions coming soon (yeah, I said that a couple times already but it’s getting close ). Enough babbling for now, expect the demos and corresponding posts within the next day.
