This award is given to exceptional technical community leaders who actively share their high quality, real world expertise with others. We appreciate your outstanding ...

  • MVP Summit 2009

    Earlier this month I was lucky enough to attend the 2009 Microsoft MVP summit in Seattle. The bulk of the summit consisted of two days of sessions with our product teams (I popped across to some Directory Services sessions as well), and a one day executive keynote session. Some heavy hitters turned up for the executive keynote - Steve Ballmer ...

  • Broken teams can't react quickly - what can we do?

    Mitch talks about the problems encountered when SysAdmins struggle to provision the infrastructure necessary to support developers - and I entirely see his point-of-view. In my opinion, it is rare for an organisation that has SysAdmins that are already skilled up on the issues required to deploy new technologies when the development teams are ...

  • Tech.Ed Australia (hopefully!) and Tech.Ed South East Asia (yes!)

    Early Bird registration for Tech.Ed Australia closes 27th May (two weeks away). Tech.Ed Australia will be on the Gold Coast again this year (like 2005) from 7th-10th August. At this stage I'm not sure I can make it - hopefully I can get a speaking spot again this year, or maybe work will send me - I think my boss is reading this blog! :-) I ...

  • Climate Change - get the facts (to the best of our knowledge...)

    Whilst IT, and solving problems with IT (both business and technical) is undoubtably one of my passions, climate change has been another for quite some time. In my day-to-day life I run into quite a few people with strong opinions one way or the other on climate change. A lot of what people think is incorrect - either completely or by degree. ...

  • Tech.Ed 2006 - the "secret handshake"?

    Mikal thinks it's a bit creepy that you need a secret handshake to submit a session breakout paper for Tech.Ed 2006 in the US. For as long as I've known (but that's probably only been the last few years) open submission of papers has not been accepted for Tech.Ed US. You've had to have been invited to submit a session (though the ...

  • David Wang resumes blogging - a comment on corporate blogs?

    David Wang (formerly of the IIS Team) resumes blogging at his new blog. His second post is revealing - it alludes to a tension between what a blogger wishes to write about, and what image their employer wishes to convey publicly. I mention this tension because Avanade (my employer) is about to launch its own corporate blogging site ...

  • What to blog about, when you can't talk about what you do?

    Brad Smith, from MCS Canberra, seems to have started blogging. He asks a legitimate question: as a consultant (whether for MCS, or for Avanade like me) what do you blog about when all the interesting work you do is off-limits? I know that most of the time I can't even list the clients we have, let alone the work we are doing, the technologies ...
