Those that are familiar with the teams inside System Center know that the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS) is “our” event of the year. It’s the one event where we pull out all the stops, have tons of sessions, and we focus on System Center and related Microsoft Management products. Rightly so, the weeks leading up to MMS are full of preparations for the event – last minute session changes, trial runs through presentations, getting all your *normal* work done as much as possible before you’re out of the office for a week. It’s just crazy.

My week-before-MMS is even more crazy this year because of all the sessions and labs I’m doing as well as getting last-minute swag for the show :) Next week will be my most jam-packed event ever, with 10 different session or lab commitments plus the keynotes and a couple of sessions I might be able to actually see. Here’s a quick look at all the sessions our team is doing at MMS this year:

So as you can see, the team is quite busy! I’d really recommend checking out the Opalis sessions. This is one really hot product that I believe will be a part of virtually everything we do over the coming years.  Get ahead of the curve and get involved now!
