Tips for Trainers
When Mike's employer started to roll out Vista, he and his colleagues ran a number of pre-migration seminars to advise and educate users about the new functionality on offer. When it came to discussing Office Communicator, most people were more concerned about being disturbed than the potential benefits. Now that the system has been live for 6 months, have opinions changed?
Cloud services are becoming increasingly significant in the computing world as we predicted in our Cloud Computing events of late 2008 and we're planning to cover a whole range of online services in our upcoming events.
Until then if you would like to read more about the Cloud Computing phenomenon try one of the following recent books on the subject.
Cloud Computing, A Practical Approach by Toby Velte, Anthony Velte and Robert C. Elsenpeter.
Cloud Application Architectures by George Reese.
Until Next Time
Please keep the feedback coming and remember you can now add comments to each event on the website, so if there's anything you'd like us to cover, just add it to the website or if you prefer send it directly to us using the contact form.
See you next time!
Elaine and Mike
