Blogging from MMS 2010

From being on my way to bed Sunday evening I am now in Las Vegas. Just arrived to Hotel Venetian in Las Vegas last night; after 35 hours travelling from Denmark. Late Sunday evening (20:30) I heard a rumor on Facebook saying; that if we could be at the Copenhagen airport within 23:00 we could be transported to Oslo where a flight was waiting to take us to Washington or NY. I Called SAS and got the rumor confirmed (Huge thank to Stefan Schörling, Swedish ConfigMgr. MVP – great to have a friend who’s spending most of his Sunday evening [...]

On my way to MMS 2010

It’s nothing less than a miracle. The airspace in Norway is now open. Right now I am waiting for a bus that will take me from Copenhagen to Oslo tonight 02:00 AM. The bus will take us thru Denmark, Sweden and finally to Oslo (Captital of Norway). Here (hopefully) I will board my flight to Washington. This will take me around 30 hours; but hey – there is gold waiting for me at the end of the Rainbow. Great sessions with the number 1 System Management speakers of the world :-)

MMS 2009 – Day 3 Wednesday

I am starting to grow old :-( woke up this morning with pain in my legs from the last few days of running. So no running this morning, instead I was spend the morning rearranging my schedule for today. My problem is that I have so many sessions I want to see and only so little time. The opening keynote by Brad Anderson was a great mix between new announcements, demos and a look into the future. One of the new interesting members of the System Center family is System Center Online Desktop Manager. I haven’t a short name for [...]

Wauw is the word that first comes to my mind when I think of the next version of Config Mgr. Today at the State of the Union session – brilliant as always – the next version of Config Mgr. was revealed to the public for the first time. The version doesn’t yet have a name (at least not a public name). So we refer to it as Config Mgr. .Next or CM .Next From the short demo I have made my own personal top 6 list of new cool features and improvements. Performance No more MMC console I repeat NO MORE [...]

MMS 2009 – Trying to keep up with my schedule

I am prepared for this year main event – Microsoft Management Summit 2009 in Las Vegas. The event is not as big as Teched but still; in order to survive you need to be well prepared. I have filled out my schedule, checked out the various “after parties” and made arrangements to catch up with “soulmates” that I haven’t seen since MMS 2008. This is in essence what makes MMS such a special event. The conference offers a great chance to mix technical learning along with socializing with interesting people from various System Center communities. Well; I am prepared and [...]
