Speaking at ExpertsLive Australia in April

Written by Tao Yang


As many of you may already know, the legendary System Center Universe franchise has been merged with ExpertsLive, which is also a popular community event over in Europe. As the result, the upcoming SCU Australia has been renamed to ExpertsLive Australia. Unlike last year, instead of just an one-day event, it is going to be a two day event, with 3 tracks: Cloud, Data Center and Enterprise Client Management. ExpertsLive Australia 2017 is going to be held at Crown Promenade Melbourne on 6th and 7th of April.

I will co-present 2 sessions with my friend and MVP veteran Pete Zerger (@pzerger). Our topics are:

  1. Discoverying and monitoring your network topology using OMS
  2. Cloud Based Automation Overview

There are many local and international speakers have already been confirmed, such as Alex Verkinderen, James Bannan, Thomas Maurer, Marcel Zehner, David Obrien, and more!

Make sure you check out the event website: http://www.expertslive.org.au and hopefully I’ll see you all there!

My Meetup Recording–Developing Your OWN OMS Solutions

Written by Tao Yang

Last month, I presented at the Melbourne Microsoft Cloud and Datacenter Meetup on the topic “Developing Your OWN OMS Solutions” (https://www.meetup.com/Melbourne-Microsoft-Cloud-and-Datacenter-Meetup/events/233154212/). I recorded the session but then realise the recording had some technical errors due to the change of screen resolution without restarting Camtasia. This morning, I re-recorded the session and uploaded to the Meetup’s YouTube Channel.

If you are interested, you can watch the recording here (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zUzI31iIcTk):

My Global Azure Boot Camp 2016 Presentation Recording

Written by Tao Yang

Last Saturday, I presented the topic of “What’s New in OMS” at the Global Azure Boot Camp 2016 Melbourne event. I have recorded it using Camtasia and uploaded to YouTube. You can watch it here:

You can also download the slide deck from HERE. When I was editing the recording, I noticed that I might not placed the lapel microphone properly as it was rubbing my collar and you will notice the some noise in the video. Oh well, something to improve next time.
