Speaking at ExpertsLive Australia in April

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

Upcoming Webinar on MP Authoring Using VSAE

After the workshop, our plan is to make the content available to general public, therefore, Richard and I will be conducting 2 additional webinars next week to cover different time zones. We will repeat what we did in last week’s internal event, and demonstrate how to build such a MP from scratch using VSAE and Visual

My Global Azure Boot Camp 2016 Presentation Recording

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.

System Center Universe 2016 North America Arrives After New Year

As the holiday season is fast approaching, 2015 has only around 10 days left. The first big System Center community event in 2016 would probably be System Center Universe North America, which is going to take place at Dallas, Taxes. As you may or may not know, System Center Universe was originally started by my friend and fellow CDM MVP Cameron Fuller few years ago. As Cameron is currently busy organising this event, he has asked us to help him spread the words. I’m more than happy to do so because in my opinion, the System Center Universe “franchise” would
