O conferinta ce nu ar trebui ratata: TechEd Europe 2013 25-28 iunie, liber la înregistrări


S-a dat drumul la procesul de înregistrare pentru TechEd Europe 2013 (conferinţa Microsoft pentru dezvoltatori), de data asta la Madrid, Spania şi în Amsterdam. Cum am avut ocazia să particip la multe ediţii TechEd, PDC şi BUILD vă spun că oricine lucrează în industria de software, indiferent că e dezvoltator, arhitect, analist sau orice altceva, ar trebui să meargă măcar o dată la un astfel de eveniment pentru că i se vor deschide perspectivele. Va putea să prindă tehnologie direct de la sursă, va putea să stea de vorbă cu cei ce au creat-o şi o folosesc de timpuriu. Cinci zile de conectare non stop la tehnologie înseamnă cât multe săptămâni de studiu individual pe tehnologii noi.

În anii trecuţi au fost şi prezentatori din România. Tiberiu Covaci are deja un track în Pre-Conf (apropo, Tibi va veni şi la IT Camp 2013) – aşa că mă aştept să îl vedem şi pe Ciprian Jichici pe zona de BI.

Vorbiţi cu şefii şi faceţi-vă rost de bugete – 2095 EUR + TVA pe early bid sau 2395 EUR+TVA costul normal. Nu e deloc puţin, acoperă însă participarea şi cazarea.

Extra, dacă ajungeţi acolo nu veţi avea doar parte de tehnologie – partea de distracţie e chiar bine acoperită :). Gândiţi-vă şi poate ne vedem acolo!

Deja sunt anunţate şi sesiunile: Securitate, BI, Developer and Tools, Office 365, Windows Azure, Windows Client şi Windows Phone. Ca de obicei există şi track-uri pentru Pre-Conf, le vedeţi mai jos.

  1. PRC01 | Deploying and Managing Windows 8 in the Real World

    Mikael Nystrom, Michael Niehaus

    What does it take for organizations to deploy and manage Windows 8? Walk through the entire process during the pre-conference day. Understand what has changed in Windows 8, how to prepare for a Windows 8 migration and create your Windows 8 image. Learn how to deploy Windows 8, and Windows 8 apps to the already-deployed computers using an enterprise app store. Regardless of whether you are new to Windows deployment and management, new to Windows 8, or an existing Windows 7 or Windows XP expert, there are benefits for all attendees, from tutorials to best practices to tips and tricks.

  2. PRC02 | From 0 to DAX

    Marco Russo, Alberto Ferrari

    The DAX language is the foundation of self-service Business Intelligence using the Microsoft stack. It is the language used to query and program both Microsoft PowerPivot for Excel 2013 and the new SQL Server Analysis Services Tabular model. Learning the basics of DAX is very simple, but mastering it is a different story because it requires a mindset that requires some study, for both BI Professionals and Information Workers.

    During this one-day workshop, the authors of the best selling books Microsoft SQL Server 2012 Analysis Services: The BISM Tabular Model and Microsoft PowerPivot for Excel 2010: Give Your Data Meaning guide you in the process of learning the DAX language, through many examples and scenarios that help you understand what are the important concepts of DAX and how to leverage them in your everyday work.

    The seminar is useful to many profiles: information workers interested in exploiting the many interesting features of PowerPivot for Excel 2013 and BI developers who want to learn the DAX language.

  3. PRC03 | Implementing Next Generation Infrastructure Solutions with Windows Server 2012

    Corey Hynes

    This seminar offers a deep look at how you can implement Windows Server 2012 to create new, modern solutions to the age-old problems of controlling access to and securing resources, expanding the network to remote users, and managing ever more complex environments.

  4. PRC04 | Windows Server Direct Access

    John Craddock

    Any time a user connects to the Internet with DirectAccess they are seamlessly connected to the corporate intranet. There is no need for the user to initiate a VPN connection, the user experiences the same connectivity regardless of whether they are connected to the intranet or Internet.

    DirectAccess was first introduced in Windows Server 2008 R2; however its implementation presented a number of challenges for administrators and to provide an enterprise ready solution inevitably required the use of Forefront Unified Access Gateway (UAG). Windows Server 2012 now includes an enhanced full feature solution for DirectAccess including load balancing, multisite, multidomain and IPv4 support via the inclusion of DNS64 and NAT64. There is even a 3-click wizard to deploy a fully functioning DirectAccess solution for SMBs. This implementation removes the need for PKI and can be configured on a single network card behind NAT. While the Wizard masks the complexities of the technologies involved, a thorough understanding of DirectAccess is required to troubleshoot and build enterprise solutions.

    John Craddock has worked extensively in the challenging environment of DirectAccess with Windows Server 2008 R2 and UAG. Windows Server 2012 allows the implementation of quicker and more compelling solutions. Come to this pre-con and learn how to deploy and troubleshoot Windows Server 2012 DirectAccess, and realize all the benefits that the Windows Server 2012 implementation has to offer. An IPv6 primer is included to provide you with sufficient knowledge to fully support your DirectAccess implementation. Comprehensive demos accelerate your learning.

  5. PRC05 | Simplify and Maximize System Management with System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1: Notes from the Field

  7. PRC07 | Lessons from the Field: Useful Hacker Techniques for Administrators

    Paula Januszkiewicz, Hasain Alshakarti, Marcus Murray

    This pre-conference seminar teaches infrastructure security concepts, including the techniques for how to attack and how to respond with an appropriate countermeasure implementation. Everyone has heard about hackers! It is commonly known that their jobs differ from system administrator jobs. However, things they do in their darkened rooms are definitely interesting and worth knowing. Many of the techniques they use are very useful in everyday administration tasks. A Hackers’ knowledge is considered to be valuable, both by system creators and common users. Administrators do not have to be taught how to be a hacker; it is often enough to show them one simple, but very interesting tool or technique, to change the point of view on their own IT environment. Paula Januszkiewicz, Marcus Murray, and Hasain “The Wolf” Alshakarti help you to feel for the hacker’s role and evaluate your network from their point of view.

  8. PRC08 | Install and Configure SharePoint 2013

    Todd Klindt

    In this session Todd helps you build out your SharePoint 2013 farm from scratch. This is no wizard-based, one-account-for-everything install. This is a real world, multi-server, least privilege install the same way he does for customers around the world. Even more exciting? Todd hates PowerPoint slides as much as you do so the whole day is a live demo of building a working farm using Microsoft SharePoint Enterprise Server 2013 with Microsoft SQL Server 2012 running on Windows Server 2012.

    Topics covered

    • Installing SharePoint 2013
    • Configuring the farm so there are no GUID or long database names

Brought to you by the author of Contoso Cookbook series of hands-on labs.

  10. PRC10 | Mastering ASP.NET MVC4 in Just One Day

    Tiberiu Covaci

    If you are still considering if you should implement your project using MVC or not, then come to this workshop where we build together an application from scratch using MVC 4. At the end of the workshop you get the resulting solution so you can continue working with it when you get back home. Having all the facts and seeing how elegant your solution can be with MVC might help you make that decision. For best experience I recommend that you bring your own computer with Visual Studio 2012 installed on it.

  11. PRC11 | Kickstart Your Application Lifecycle Management Using Team Foundation Server 2012

    Anthony Borton

    Frequently Microsoft Team Foundation Server (TFS) finds its way into organizations through well intentioned developers taking it upon themselves to install and configure it. Unfortunately this usually leads to a very ad-hoc usage of the product that fails to deliver the real benefits of an integrated Application Lifecycle Management suite.

    In this workshop we start by setting ourselves up with a brand new Team Project on TFS 2012 and then proceed to configure everything required to get our team ready for their first iteration.

    This pre-conference workshop is designed to help attendees learn how to get projects started using Microsoft Team Foundation Server. The range of topics covered in this level 200 workshop have been selected to ensure attendees cover the primary areas of value in the product.

    Attendees to the workshop receive workshop notes in electronic format which including the hands-on lab exercises, as well as a comprehensive list of resources that they can use after the conference to get up to speed with TFS.

  12. PRC12 | Enterprise Agility Is Not an Oxymoron

    Steve Borg, Cheryl Hammond

    Every enterprise wants to develop software better, but adopting a methodology which fails to take into account your organization’s context, culture, and regulatory or legacy obligations is usually too risky. Too radical a change too quickly, or the wrong change too forcefully, can drive a wedge between engineering and business. Complete or partial process failures compound themselves by demoralizing the team.

    There is a better way.

    All of the popular lean and agile methodologies offer valuable insights and are backed by real success stories, but no methodology can work if it’s carelessly or dogmatically applied. In the enterprise, it’s critical to identify and focus quickly on your unique leverage points. Starting up right allows you to create early wins and then build upon your teams’ success to achieve real gains faster than you could have imagined.

    This workshop exposes the practices and measures that drive continued improvement, and how they can be introduced gently to the organization. We show you how incremental, measurable improvements can be adopted with minimal risk. Think you have to rework your entire development process and radically change everything overnight to get agile success? Think again. Real improvements are easily accomplished without the need for radical changes, using the tools taught in this workshop. We explore ideas from lean, kanban, the Theory of Constraints, and of course, agile principles and Scrum, all with the perspective you need to identify and put in place the right practices for your organization.
