Welcome to the TechEd Community!

For more than 20 years, TechEd North America has been the largest annual Microsoft event for IT professionals and corporate developers. It provides the technical education, product evaluation, and community resources to plan, architect, deploy, manage, and help secure a connected enterprise.

Born from the specific, deep technical needs of a subset of the IT community focused on systems management, the Microsoft Management Summit was created by the community itself. It has grown from an event focusing on SMS and managing PCs to an event that covers the Microsoft vision across PCs, devices, and data center and cloud computing—focusing on key investments being made in Microsoft System Center, Windows, Windows Server, Windows Azure, and more.

One Enterprise Event

We are excited to announce that in 2014, we’re bringing together the best of TechEd and MMS at TechEd North America in Houston, TX, May 12–15. We will continue to provide these two powerful communities with the rich experience and deep technical content they expect, while expanding the opportunities to interact with other professionals across the breadth of Microsoft technologies.

Why Attend?

Thought Leadership and Technical Education

Hear from industry experts about the latest trends and participate in a broader range of learning opportunities across the breadth of Microsoft technologies and enterprise solutions.

Community Connection

Experience the rich benefits of two powerful communities coming together, plus the opportunity to interact with technology professionals in both structured and informal settings.

Access to Experts

Access more experts from the Microsoft ecosystem and industry experts; get greater exposure to engineers, product experts, and industry influentials who know the technology best.

TechEd North America 2014 will be your source for the latest news, trends, resources, and deep technical education that make you experts in your field.

We look forward to seeing you in Houston in May!

There’s a lot more to life than just working to support yourself

I Just received my daily email from http://www.sqlservercentral.com and this is the first time I have ever reposted anything from an email… But I don’t think I could have said it better or as eloquently as Steve Jones has done below…

image

There’s a lot more to life than just working to support yourself. Sometimes you need to do just that, but often we have more flexibility to enjoy and appreciate the world around us.

We can take joy and pleasure in the experiences we have, the people we encounter, and the accomplishments we achieve. However there’s another part of life that I think is important for everyone, and that’s giving of yourself to help others.

I believe that almost everyone should volunteer their time or resources and give back to society. We should all work to make this a better world for everyone.

Whether this is through a church, a non-profit, your local community or some other way, we are all better off for the efforts.

I also believe this isn’t something you do constantly throughout your life, though if please feel free to do so. Some of us will volunteer when we are young, some when we retire. The important thing is that when we are able to do so, we act.

Giving of yourself helps others, and it can provide you with positive feelings. It can also be good for your career. This piece talks a bit about the traits of those people that give, and it seems they often find their own personal success grows. This is because the way they view themselves, their time, and their accomplishments, changes when they help others. Volunteering can reduce stress, and may help you enjoy your job more. That last item might be the most important reason of all.

This is something you can learn to do, by making time to help others at work, or in your life. Please be sure to balance this with the rest of your life, but you might find that taking a little of your free time to help others ends up improving the quality of your life, well beyond the price you pay in accomplishing less yourself. However please volunteer because you want to, not because you want to look good or add an item to your resume. Give because you want to give.

Steve Jones from SQLServerCentral.comJoin the debate, and respond to today’s editorial on the forums

This single editorial will ensure that I continue read with enthusiasm all of the email I receive from SQLServerCentral.com. To submit an article, rant or editorial, log in to the Contribution Center

Steve, this is a great editorial!!! I was just having this conversation with my son Jonathan earlier today,we have a responsibility to give back to our communities in which we live and to make the world a better place. You could not have summed up my thoughts any better as I look back at the past few years, where I have been very blessed to be part of a team and to be able to to give back to the folks who enjoy being a part of the community..

Thank you !!!

Microsoft Technical Communities – Leaders & Speakers Wanted

Many folks already know. But, I have found that there are still quite a few community leaders and speakers that may not be aware of the benefits to joining the Microsoft Technical Communities or that it exists. I made this assumption once I noticed all of the User Groups and Events that are not listed yet?

Part of the reason may be that UGSS has evolved into Microsoft Technical Communities and folks haven’t registered, just click on the link below and if you’re a Microsoft Community Leader (User Group or Event Organizer) or Community Speaker please register. I was a member of the UGSS but never received any information from the change to the new site, well maybe I did and don’t know. The cool thing is now we are getting the attention, time, training etc that will help all of us within our communities even more…. Once you have registered you will receive an email from MSTC within 3 days…

BTW – This is the only way I know of to request and receive re-imbursement for a part of the expense of supporting our community from Microsoft..

https://www.technicalcommunity.com 

 

image

After you sign-in, just click on the type of UserID your using and you will get further instruction, just click next and enter your UserName and Password and you will receive a WebPage like the one below where you can choose a role Community Leader or Community Speaker. Information will be filtered based on the role you choose. This actually caused me to walk through the site a couple of times. However, you can choose both roles..

image

 

In order to get full access to membership, you will need to complete your profile.  Your profile is not saved until the last page when you click Submit.  Your Microsoft Technical Communities Profile is used to customize this site. The information you indicate below will filter the content that you receive so that you will only see information that is of interest to you. Keep your profile up to date so you can get the most from your Microsoft Technical Communities experience. Please note that your personal information will be visible to other community members on the website.

Read and Accept the EULA and click next, read and accept the Code of Conduct and click next, Read and Accept the Terms of use and click next, complete your Registration and Profile information note you should have your MCP, MVP, MCT IDs available as necessary

image

 

 

 

 

Once you have completed the registration process you can begin by associating yourself with the Microsoft UserGroups in your Community If your UserGroup isn’t listed, spread the word today to all of your user Community Leaders but don’t forget your favorite Speakers as we need your love too…
