IT Forum 2005 at Barcelona is on its way

About one and a half month to go till IT Forum 2005 in Barcelona (November 15th - 17th). A couple of days at Barcelona surrounded by great Microsoft technology in the fall is pretty attractive, isn't it? You still have 10 days for early bird registration. More information about the conference can be found on the IT Forum 2005 website.

A quick overview:

  • The slogan: "Three days of learning, one year of solutions". Notice the event is reduced to 3 days based on feedback of earlier editions, saving time and money for your company without compromising content or opportunities to meet with delegates.
  • Over 170 technical sessions in 10 targeted tracks for IT folks, being Solution and Infrastructure Architects, Administrators and Senior IT Managers/Directory, etc.
  • Covering technologies going from Windows Server System, over SQL Server 2005 to Navision. Also Windows Server 2003 R2 and Windows Vista will be covered.
  • Built on three key pillars:
    • Technology Education with pre-conferences on November 14th, more than 170 technical sessions filled with infrastructure content, Chalk-&-Talk sessions and a delegate website where you'll find all of the resources.
    • Technology Evaluation gives you an opportunity to see (new) products in action (Navision, Solomon, Microsoft Operations Manager 2005, SQL Server 2005, Windows XP, ISA Server 2004, SharePoint Portal Server 2003 but also Windows Vista/Longhorn and "Office 12") and to experiment with these technologies yourself in Hands-on Labs. More than 80 partners will tell you about their products, services and technologies too.
    • Community & Networking is the place to be to get in touch with Microsoft technology experts from the product teams, support services, MVPs and MCTs on the Ask The Experts. Join the partners in the exhibition hall and attend panel discussions to ask anything you want to ask.
  • The keynote presentation will be delivered by Bob Muglia, Senior Vice President of the Windows Server Division.
  • !!!NEW!!! Lightning Demos are targeted at people with or without a lot of experience with the product in order to get a quick overview and level of understanding. These 30 minute demos with high level explanations show the capabilities and top level functionalities of selected products and how they fit into the overall Microsoft Platform Strategy.

Consult the on-line brochure as well to find out more about this great event you should not miss if you're an IT guy in the Microsoft technologies space. Register now as an early bird (till October 7th) on this page and join over 3000 European IT peers. Hope to see you there on ATE or on my Chalk-&-Talk together with Lukasz Pawlowski, Program Manager on SQL Server Business Intelligence responsible for Reporting Services and Notification Services, on "SQL Server Notification Services Demystified" (CHT063). Scheduling has not completed yet, but I'll keep you up-to-date through my blog.
