Greetings. Just want to let you know about an upcoming event (two weeks from today) featuring Mark Russinovich, one of the authors of Windows Internals, Fifth Edition (Microsoft Press, 2009). Here’s its description:

Springboard Series Virtual Roundtable

The Last Mile: Pilot and Deploy Windows 7

Join Microsoft Technical Fellow, Mark Russinovich, on April 29 as he leads a discussion around the process of planning, testing, assessing and rolling out Windows 7 in an enterprise organization.

Mark will be joined by a panel of IT professionals who are currently in the piloting and deployment process, along with Microsoft subject matter experts who can speak in depth about the technologies.  The event will be broadcast live over the web at 9:00 am PDT, and will be available for on-demand viewing following the broadcast. The discussion will be open and candid, with the panel sharing insights, dispelling myths and getting down to the real story around technical adoption of Windows technologies. Specific topics will include the role of the pilot and the critical information it provides, best practices and tips & tricks for ensuring a successful effort, tools and technologies that will help automate the pilot and deployment processes, and conducting a frank post-pilot assessment.  During the event, Mark will field questions coming in via the web from viewers across the globe.

Questions can also be submitted in advance to vrtable@microsoft.com.

Join us live at 9:00 am PDT: http://ms.istreamplanet.com/springboard/

We’ll post another reminder for you before the roundtable.
