What do you get on a Saturday, last week of Finals on a 100 degree day in the Arizona Desert? (Alright, it’s Phoenix but it’s still 100 degrees). Oh, did I mention that this is a Saturday at 8am?
What you get is some people who are passionate about their education, certification, their future and the future of technology, oh and Windows 7 :)
The folks at Glendale Community College in beautiful Phoenix Arizona we’re excited to see us when we arrived! I didn’t get as many pictures as I would have hoped to, but my camera was charging so these are the ones I was able to get near the end!
This was quite a competitive game of Are You Certifiable, the likes of which we’d never seen! The teach of the group came out on top, and everyone else… came in as a solid tie for 2nd place: Result? Everyone wins, since we give prizes to 1st and 2nd place :) Elise ran quite a rocking game as shown here.
While there is a beautiful picture of the campus, and of Tjeerd here walking with campus instructor MCT, Janet Brooks here is the low down on what I wasn’t able to get as a picture!
We were honored by Microsoft Presenter, Harold Wong @haroldwong who talked all about the cool stuff available in Windows 7 as well as Windows Server 2008 R2. He didn’t bore us in the realm of slide death, and instead took it to the core with demo after demo, real engaging and the interaction and questions taken with the audience were great! The whole of the experience was great, and the students and faculty were excited by the whole event and prospect. Their future wasn’t set in stone, and still isn’t, but the opportunities have presented themselves in a whole different light, so the future is most definitely now!
So, thank you Glendale Community College for the beautiful weather, passionate discourse and the ability to distribute swag to you :) We’re on the road now rolling towards Vegas and only time will tell what goes on before we pull into Los Angeles for TechEd at 8:30AM with the Swag Express! See you all there! :)
