  • Blog Post: TE08: First Ever Australian Annual IT Demo Champion - Tatham Oddie

    Way back in March this year we kicked off the largest ever launch of a Microsoft product, with the Heroes Happen {Here} Launch of Windows Server 2008, Visual Studio 2008 and SQL Server 2008. Since then we've been running a competition throughout the community of Microsoft technologists, at Usergroups...
  • Blog Post: TE08: Who will be crowned the 1st Annual Australian IT Demonstration Hero?

    Here at TechEd08 we’ve been working through the National Finalists of the Demos Happen {Here} competition. So far we’ve had 4 demo hero’s strut their stuff on the stage in the Expo hall, with another 3 to go. The competition is so successful that we decided to make this the inaugural event of what will...
  • Blog Post: DH{H}: The final countdown…

    Our epic Demos Happen {Here} competition is rapidly moving to its next phase, the State Finals. In fact there are less than 49 hours (as of this post) left to register an entry. So how does is the competition stacking up? In terms of # of entries by State: Qld - 6 NSW - 5 SA - 4 Vic - 2 I believe there...

  • Blog Post: Demos Happen {Here}

    Our National Demo Competition is starting to hot up, despite the seeming lack of activity on the Community Website, and I've been fielding a number of questions across the board. I thought it may be high time to post the most frequent, and attempt at least to answer these as best I can. As ever if you...
  • Blog Post: Demo's Happen {Here}

    Are you worthy of the title Australian Demo God 2008 ? Do you have what it takes to demonstrate complex technical techniques simply, efficiently, enthusiastically? Do you want to be celebrated for your technical prowess at TechEd08 in Sydney later this year? Are you confident enough to win an all expenses...
  • Blog Post: Up the Mighty Swan

    Once all the demos were delivered, we were treated to an evening out on the Swan River. As you can see, we were treated like kings, cruising downstream with the magnetic views of Perth in the background. We reached the apex of the cruise at about sunset. Watching a host of Kite surfers do their stuff...
  • Blog Post: Preparing for Perth

    I got into Perth this afternoon, and after a bite to eat, headed straight to the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre. What a great location. Of course, the sound, vision, technical, and events crews were still in the process of "bumping in" and I wondered over to the Auditorium, where the...
  • Blog Post: Heroes Happen Launch - Adelaide

    We're in Adelaide, and it's HOT, HOT, HOT!!! Not only with the launch, but also the weather. 11th consecutive day of +35 deg C temperatures. Walking outside is like peering into a furnace. The summer that Sydney missed. Those of you following our exploits will know that I was down to deliver the Keynote...
  • Blog Post: Adelaide here I come

    It's been a hugely eventful week (check out what happened to our family last night) for me. Not least of which has been trying to come to grips with the Keynote Demo for the Adelaide Wave Launch. But most of us arrive tomorrow and have a jam-packed agenda: Tomorrow evening Steve Riley will be presenting...
  • Blog Post: Sharepoint in SA (South Australia)

    Loving all the work that Daniel Brown and his compadre's are doing around Sharepoint in Adelaide. This month, apart from taking part in the Heroes Happen Launch (shameless plug), they're hosting a Networking Event at the Pasta Palace. If you are in Adelaide on the 18th March, and have anything at all...
  • Blog Post: Heroes Happen Launch - Take Two

    So I'm here at Melbourne with the second iteration of the Heroes Happens Launch, and if anything, I'm enjoying it more than Sydney. Last week I spent much of my time chatting to our MVP's, Usergroup Leaders and customers. And although I've been meeting heaps of people here too, I've taken the time out...
  • Blog Post: Impressions of a Launch Event

    This is not my first launch whilst working for Microsoft. There's been Windows Vista, Exchange 2007, and a while back the 2005 Ready Launch (Visual Studio 2005, SQL Server 2005). And Microsoft launches are certainly not new to me in my career. I was there way back when Windows for Workgroups 3.11 and...
  • Blog Post: Heroes Happen {Here}

    So I'm at the launch event, ready to rock, but I thought I'd blog (initially at least) on a slightly different spin to the launch of Windows, SQL, and Visual Studio 2008. That is interoperability with the Open Source Communities: We have a campaign for the heroes that work with Microsoft technologies...

  • Blog Post: Play Nicely Now

    I Love our generation. I Love the technology we work with, and I especially Love the Internet. One of the things I love is enabling people, connecting people. The implications of that over my career, has been to work with a heap of technologies: JCL, COBOL, Novell, WordPerfect, Windows for Workgroups...
