So I just got back from three days of technical training in San Francisco at the Microsoft TechMentor Conference. I learned a lot about Server 2008, Vista SP1, and TONS of other stuff. My favorite speaker and author was there, Mark Minasi , and my second favorite speaker was Greg Shields. I recommend picking up any and ALL of Mark’s books.
Here is a link to ALL the session slides and audio clips!
