Rehearsals for Ready! Launch Tour
Updated – Added Hobart Community Launch
Updated II – Corrected the Adelaide Venue – thanks Frank
I'm off to Melbourne tomorrow morning to rehearse with Dave Glover and smokin’ Joe Sango for the developer track for our Ready! tour launching VS 2005, SQL 2005 and BTS 2006. Rob Caron, who will be down here for some of the launch tour, will be joining us via Live Meeting for some of the morning.
In each city, we’ll be doing a community launch event and a business launch event. At the community event you can enjoy a night of networking opportunities with speakers, your peers in the industry, speakers at the next day’s presentations and the Microsoft team. The night will consist of impromptu presentations, plus great food and drinks. We will also distribute lots of resources to get you started with the soon to be launched products.
The next day, we’ll be running a full day event we’re calling the business launch (to distinguish it from the community launch). We’ll have a keynote (which will look very similar to this, but delivered by people with significantly more hair) followed by 3 tracks of technical presentations focusing on the technologies that we’re launching. These will be much more formal presentations than the events the night before.
Here's where we'll be and when:
