    Hope Springs Eternal

    • 0 Comments
    Kimberly here. In July, one reader included the following comment in a book survey: “I'm not convinced these surveys are always looked at, but I always live in hope!” Well, dear reader, I am here to assure you that your hopes are fulfilled on a regular basis! Back in January, when we launched our new book survey, we also launched a formal program to review the results. Each quarter, we look at the results for the books that sold during that quarter in two ways. First, we derive a numerical customer satisfaction score from the quantitative data. We report that score to the Microsoft Learning organization and it becomes part of our goals as a Microsoft Press team. Second, the Microsoft Press team meets to review all the comments for the books in a particular series or that cover a particular...

    Ed Wilson: Well … the week is nearly done

    • 1 Comments
    Today is Thursday! Yep, the week is nearly finished. It has been an exciting week, highlighted by conducting a week's worth of Live Meetings that have been attended by a couple thousand people . If history is any indication, the series of five live meetings will be downloaded many many more times than the actual number of attendees. The topic? Well Windows PowerShell of course. When doing Live Meetings, the thing that is great is the diversity of the audience. Actually, though, this seems to be the case wherever I go. Several years ago when I was teaching VBScript classes, I would always have a wide variety of people in the class – some who were clearly advanced scripters, and others who were just beginning to see the advantages of automating repetitive processes on their servers....
