Fellow Exchange MVP Jeff Guillet just finished rotation 10 (R10) of the Microsoft Certified Master program for Exchange. His writeup gives an excellent overview of what the program’s really like: intense and focused learning, now 7 days per week. It is very hard work, but the quality of the work that MCM candidates do with the skills and knowledge they get at MCM speaks for itself.
But suppose that you can’t spare the time or money to attend an MCM rotation? Good news: Tony Redmond and I have one more Exchange Maestro class coming up at the end of October in Greenwich, CT. For a limited time, using the registration code “FAN” will net you $250 off registration. (When I say “limited”, what I really mean is that I don’t know when Penton will stop honoring the code so I encourage you not to dawdle; the class is nearly full.)
But further suppose that you aren’t able to attend this Maestro event– after all, Connecticut in the fall isn’t for everyone. Good news: don’t forget that Tony and I are co-presenting a one-day workshop on planning and executing Exchange 2010 migrations as a pre-conference session at the Fall Exchange Connections show. In one action-packed day, we’ll cover the migration-related highlights from the Maestro curriculum, plus Tony will tell jokes. Trust me when I say that his jokes are not to be missed. Plus, it’s Halloween that day, so if I can persuade Tony to agree we might have a costume contest for attendees. I mean, who wouldn’t want to dress up in costume for Halloween in Las Vegas? That’s certainly on my bucket list. Feel free to leave costume suggestions for me in the comments section of this post.
