Getting a head start on attending the UK 2008 launch event

Getting a head start on attending the UK 2008 launch event

  • Comments 7

My Colleague the Moth has posted a blog entry that gives you a link to pre-register for the UK 2008 launch event for Windows Server 2008, SQL Server 2008 and Visual Studio 2008.

It will be a popular event so if you're interested in attending I'd recommend getting in quick.

  • Post
  • any free goodies planned for this year?

  • I definitely can't say ......

  • Ian why is it your reply reminds me of Shrek 3?

    "It wouldn't be inaccurate to assume that I couldn't exactly not say that is or isn't almost partially incorrect.

    ...

    I'm possibly more or less not definitely rejecting the idea that in no way, with any amount of uncertainty..."

  • I like it. I'll have to use that sometime.

    And as the years go by I seem to be looking more and more like Shrek too, so maybe it all makes sense.

    Seriously though, I don't own the launch and it definitely isn't my place to make any comment beyond the fact of the event itself.

  • Is the Birmingham launch the only UK launch planned (to your knowledge)?  If I remember correctly, with the VS2005 launch there was a launch tour which included London and Birmingham (certainly London as I was there).  With Vista/Exchange/Office, similarly there were ones at London, and local ones at Reading for Developers/Community etc.

    Being down in the South, travelling to Birmingham would be a significant trek if there's going to be ones done more locally too.

  • To be honest I haven't been close enough to this launch (for a change). I know a number of options have been explored, I'm not sure where it finished up.

    I am reasonably sure this is the only "big" launch event though (there are separate specialist events such as for partners).

    I'm about to leave the office until 2nd Jan, if I find out anything before I go off radar I'll post it here.

  • Better late than never: Birmingham is indeed the main event. There will be some TechNet and MSDN events in the weeks/months after the main event that will cover some of the content, but there won't be a repeat of the main event.

    So...if you want to attend I would recommend signing up for the Birmingham one.

    HTH.
