FREE trainings of MOF 4.0 and SCCM 2007 by MVP Cleber Marques

Hi Friends,


My great friend Cleber Marques, one of the authorities in project management of Brazil and Microsoft MVP, released in his website (http://www.clebermarques.com/) two free training for students and professionals: one about Microsoft Operations Framework (MOF) 4.0 and other about System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007.


In the MOF training, he developed eight videos and a sheet about the MOF 4.0 Foundations certification, which was released at the end of the last year. One important note: he was approved in that exam, raising the credibility of this material.


Below are the URLs to the videos and the sheet (In Portuguese):



The another training is about System Center Configuration Manager 2007. In his site, there are 13 videos in Portuguese, covering the main topics of this solution from installation to management. This training has more than four hours of video, providing a great foundation to the professional.


Below are the links to these videos (In Portuguese):



I recommend these trainings, because their technical qualities are awesome. I wish to congratulate my friend Cleber Marques, by the initiative of creating this material. Thanks, my friend.

Windows Vista Springboard Series – Recognition

Hi Friends,


On the last semester of the last year, many presenters and collaborators promoted a series of events in many states of Brazil about Windows Vista and its first Service Pack. This series was known as Windows Vista Springboard Series, and had the support of Microsoft Brazil, Culminis and INETA.


In our case, we promoted presentations in five cities of Brazil: Fortaleza (State of Ceará), Picos (State of Piauí), Boa Vista (State of Roraima), Salvador (State of Bahia) and Manaus (State of Amazonas). In resume, more than 250 professionals were present in these events, and learned about features and functionalities of Windows Vista and the improvements brought by SP1 to users. In all cases, we had many professionals who changed their minds about Windows Vista, and understood that this version is far superior from its previous version.


To recognize the efforts made to promote these presentations, Microsoft Brazil created a gallery with the 10 mainly collaborators of Springboard events in Brazil. And is with great happiness that I share with you that I was one of these ten collaborators of Windows Vista events in our country! Below is a picture with the list of these professionals in Microsoft’s Technet site. The URL for this page is http://www.microsoft.com/brasil/technet/comunidade/premiacao_springboard/default.mspx.


Springboard Gallery


I wanna say thanks to all professionals that attended these events, because we couldn’t achieve this recognition without you. Also, I want so dedicate this victory to my wife Priscila, who is a fortress in hard moments. Thank you, my Priscila. I LOVE YOU!


To finish, we will begin a new series of efforts to promote the new Microsoft OS: Windows 7.

New Year, New Paths

Hi Friends,


I´d like to begin this post apologizing about my “missing” in the last few months. I´m involved in a project that finishes this week, and soon I´ll be sharing with you here in my blog.


But, until that, let´s get back to work! And I start sharing with you my newest path: the Master degree in Applied Informatics.


In January, five slots for this Master course were open. Since I became Bachelor a few weeks ago, I took the chance and participated of the trials. And, after a week, I was selected and I will develop my project focused in the Database area!


Below is the screen of the website with the list of the five selected students.


Master in Applied Informatics


I wish to dedicate this victory to my only one love: my wife Priscila. Without her support, I couldn´t have achieved this great victory. Thank you, my love. I LOVE YOU!


Soon we´ll have more news! Wait and see!
