New Windows Server 2012 IT Camps Coming!


Yes it’s the season of IT Camps again and I’m really excited to announce our next round of IT Camps based on the recently released Windows Server 2012. With the release of Windows Server 2012 there is simply too much content to fit it all in for a 1 day camp. So this time around myself and Andrew are looking to do multiple waves of camps throughout the year. To give you an idea of how much content there is check out the image below.

itcamp topics

As you can see we have a wide range of topics to cover and we can’t cover it all in a 1 day or even a 2 day camp. The content has been designed in a modular fashion so we can slice it up any way we want. For the first round of events we have decided to go with the following agenda. This agenda will focus on 3 broad areas: Multi-Server Management; Virtualization and Storage Management. Future camps will cover additional topics as needed so make sure you keep an eye out for additional camps.
