A Message from Your TechMentor Co-Chairs

There's nothing quite like information straight from the source. That's exactly what TechMentor delivers this August 7-11 as we return to the Microsoft Campus for another week of straight-from-the-mothership IT learning.

The conversation continues this year with another look at the topics and technologies that are relevant and immediately-usable in your IT datacenter. Like always, each of our sessions is taught by either an independent industry expert who knows and uses their technology in the trenches; or, by one of Microsoft’s “blue badges” themselves. No one knows these topics better, and no one is better equipped to knowledge transfer them to you.

We break the content apart this year into seven major tracks, giving you the opportunity to hone your server and datacenter skills, learn the details of implementing DevOps, dig deep into the biggest client issues of the day, enhance your infrastructure and security positioning, get the real-world and immediately-usable guidance for cloud services, and even brush up on your soft skills. Take a tour through this extensive catalog of courses for all the details.

That's not all, though. TechMentor is also…not…the biggest IT learning conference out there. At TechMentor, we're not large and you're not a number. You'll get one-on-one with our speakers and experts during our Birds-of-a-Feather lunch events, our kick-off Dine A-Round Dinner, and our Wednesday evening Seattle Sunset Cruise, among a week of opportunities.

You're also not bound by the usual 75-minute sessions seen at most other conferences. TechMentor goes deep with morning three-hour Deep Dives along with an entire Monday and Friday of long-form, and in some cases Hands-On, sessions that are not to be missed.

Whether your datacenter has a dozen servers or a thousand; whether they're centralized or distributed globally; whether they're physical or virtual; whether they're on-premises or deployed in the cloud; TechMentor offers cutting-edge education designed to help you get the most from your current investment, while making smart decisions for future technology investments.

Are you ready for an unforgettable week in the middle of everything? We'll see you in Redmond!
