Where in the World is Mark Russinovich?
I haven't had a chance to write a new post in a while because I've been busy working on Windows, new Sysinternals tools and enhancements to existing ones, and the 5th edition of Windows Internals, so I thought that I'd update you on my speaking schedule, book status, and what's going on at Sysinternals.
My next event is one that anyone can easily attend live, or via recorded webcast: it's the third virtual roundtable in the Microsoft Springboard series of round tables I've been hosting. Springboard is program designed to connect IT pros with practical information, guidance and tools to help them in their evaluation and deployment of Windows without marketing fluff getting in the way. This next round table is on September 24 and takes on the topic of performance. As usual, we'll have a panel of MVPs and customers sharing their experiences and real world tips with you. You can sign up to watch it live and find the contact to send in your questions ahead of time here.
In addition to the round table, I've got a full conference schedule for the Fall, including three keynotes:
TechEd Hong Kong, October 8-10, Wanchai, Hong Kong
Virtualization Congress, October 15-16, London, UK
Microsoft Platforma, December 4-5, Moscow, Russia
I'm also returning to one of my favorite conferences, TechEd EMEA IT Pros. I love reconnecting with my speaker friends, the enthusiastic European attendees, and Barcelona. I'm delivering several sessions, including an updated "The Case of the Unexplained...", complete with all new examples.
TechEd EMEA IT Pro, November 3-7, Barcelona, Spain
I hope to see you at one of these events, and if attend one of my sessions please stop by and say hello.
The book, which is updated to focus exclusively on Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, is well along and we're on track for publication in January. I'm writing it again with David Solomon, my coauthor on the previous two editions, and Alex Ionescu, who is new to this edition and contributing great content. With all the new information and experiments, the book is going to be around 250 pages longer, making it its bed-time reading value stretch even longer. You can find information on the book on its official home page here.
Finally, Bryce and I have some exciting Sysinternals updates, including a major Process Monitor update and enhancements to Process Explorer, planned for release in the coming weeks and months.
If you'd like to hear directly from me on what I'm up to at Microsoft, what's behind the Sysinternals operation, what new feature we're releasing in Process Monitor, and my views on Windows, operating system security, and more, check out my recent interview with TechNet Edge.
