When it comes to getting that promotion, that new job, or just holding down what you've got, the key is a having a well-rounded set of operational skills - including "prerequisite" products that are outside your main expertise. On this Friday morning, join TechMentor co-chair and MVP Don Jones for a fun, relaxed resume booster - ably assisted in spots by fellow MVP Jason Helmick. You'll learn "just enough to be dangerous" for key administrative tasks like SQL Server, IIS, and even PowerShell Remoting. You'll also learn resume-boosting "soft skills" like how to give a better presentation and how to write a better e-mail, from two experts at presenting and writing. Peppered throughout the morning will be advice on where to point your career, and overviews of "new stuff" like containerization and configuration management, so you can sound smarter when you get back to the office. We'll move quick, cut everything down to the absolute essentials, and absolutley keep you awake and entertained.
