1. Come to the IT Classroom on Campus
Sometimes, stepping away from everything is the best way to learn anything. Attending a live conference remains the best way to stay current in the ever-changing IT industry. You need a single event that will cover all your bases, taking place at THE source of all things Microsoft – you need TechMentor!
2. In-Depth, Relevant Training Created for IT Pros
In sessions, workshops, keynotes and networking events, you'll have access to the expertise of independent IT veterans and Microsoft insiders dedicated to helping you answer your most difficult questions. Walk away with real-world solutions to your everyday IT problems that you can implement immediately within your organization.
3. Modernize Your Datacenter
We've specially crafted this year's agenda so that you can start squeezing more return from your existing server and infrastructure investments. That's what "Datacenter Edition" means to us: a focus on those back-end investments. We're focused on modernization tips for the solutions and operating systems you have right now, and on helping you prepare for the next generation of Microsoft technologies.
4. Get Hands-on Training HERE
We offer eight (8) hands-on labs – laptops required – covering everything from PowerShell to handling a Windows crash to troubleshooting and group policy intensive training. Bring your laptop and get hands-on!
5. Learn from the Best
The speakers at TechMentor are some of the best in the business. Don't miss your chance to learn from experts such as Master Consultant Bruce Mackenzie-Low, Microsoft Sr. IT Evangelist Yung Chou, and TechMentor Conference Co-Chairs Don Jones and Greg Shields.
6. Dive Deep!
Ever leave a conference session thinking, "One hour was only enough time to scratch the surface. I wish there were more time to really dig in." Well, we read your mind (and your conference evaluations). We devote two days in August to 3 hour, content-rich deep dives, allowing amply time to dig into the details of today's technology.
7. Live like a Blue Badge for the Week.
TechMentor is BACK at Microsoft Headquarters in Redmond, WA. Take advantage of this opportunity to get inside the technological mecca – you'll have the chance to explore the campus, visit the employee-only area of the company store, lunch with Microsoft employees, and more!
8. Network. Network. Network.
There's plenty of time between sessions, during meals, and at any of the scheduled activities to get to know your fellow attendees, learn from their experiences, and share a few of your own.
9. Just the Right Size.
TechMentor Redmond is a boutique IT conference, and it's for a reason! The smaller conference size allows attendees to have one-on-one time with both speakers and fellow attendees. Take advantage of time between sessions, meals and networking events to mix and mingle – IT education doesn't stop in the classroom!
10. Relevant Industry and Insider Content
At TechMentor, we pride ourselves on providing unbiased, technical training from today's most renowned and experienced independent IT experts. At TechMentor Redmond, you'll also benefit from being "at the source" and hearing from more than a few Microsoft insiders on the latest technologies available.
