Office 2010 & Windows Intune at SWUG this Wed


I’m looking forward to the Sydney Windows User Group (SWUG) this Wed (only 2 days to go!).

Nick Rayner (newly blogging again) has lined up another rip-snorter (<- the first definition) and managed to get both Alistair Speirs and Jeff Alexander presenting on the same night (many people travel miles to hear just one of these guys – they’re that good :-))

Alistair (newly married) will be talking about Office 2010 including Visio, Project and SharePoint. I’m a big Alistair fan (as you know), so I’d be going anyway, but having just upgraded to Office 2010 I wouldn’t miss it. Office 2010 is an excellent upgrade IMO, particularly Outlook 2010 which has removed just about every frustration I had previously – its speed improvements are worth the upgrade alone (search, startup, shutdown, etc). I love it, and am looking forward to learning all those little tips and tricks that usually take months to learn – Alistair is a master at surfacing them.

Jeff (newly TechEd planning) will be covering something I’ve never heard of – Windows Intune (no, not iTune!). Something geeky about cloud services… managing… securing… PCs.
Whatever – if Jeff’s presenting it’s worth tuning into (<- see what I did there).

By the way, did you know that SWUG is the ultimate Windows User Group? Well it is. There, it says so on the box…
