SMB IT Pro - Sydney - Migration Workshop

Just a heads up to those who may be interested in an SBS 2008 Migration workshop being held by the SMB IT Professionals - Sydney group.

This Workshop will be held on Saturday 6th February, 2010 from 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM (Sydney local time, AEDT - GMT + 11:00).  The actual touchy-feely, "smell the presenters" places have all been sold - even after moving it from the Microsoft offices to a nearby RSL Club!  That's excellent news.

What's even more excellent news is that I'll now be travelling down to Sydney to (attempt to) provide a webcast and recording of this event so that other folks can participate in what should be a decent day's learnin'.  Now we all know that there's going to be a fair few factors determining whether the webcast will work, so for those interested who pay ahead, if there are issues preventing the webcast from happening from our end, you will all be joyfully refunded.  Now, you can't get a better offer than that!  :)

So, if you're interested in participating in the webcast on the day, please make your payment of AU$45 (no GST as SMB IT Professional - Sydney does not charge GST) to:

SMBIT Professionals Sydney Incorporated

Westpac Hornsby
BSB – 032 285
Account – 335715
PO Box 683 Turramurra NSW 2074
Contact – George Nade (
PLEASE make the bank deposit obvious as to whom it is from!  :)

For those interested in the event but who cannot attend either in person or via the webcast, assuming all goes well a recording of the event will be made available for AU$30 (again, no GST component) and payment can be made to the above bank account.

Typically the day will be about SBS 2003 -> 2008 migration however we want to explore general migration concepts like Microsoft vs Swing Migration, Exchange fork lifting, and generally any other issues with migrating systems. As most of us deal with SBS everyday this will clearly be the focus of workshop however we’d also like to entertain novel migration concepts of upcoming products like BPOS as well if there is a demand. We are looking for people to contribute their experiences and apprehensions around any form of IT migrations.

The day is arranged around being an interactive group sessions where all participants contribute their ideas and experience as we work through a typical migration scenario.

PLEASE NOTE that to participate in the webcast, you will need the Microsoft LiveMeeting Client installed (available from this page) and then to test that it is working.
If you have any questions, please either contact myself or Robert Crane (President, SMB IT Professionals - Sydney).
