April 2008

What are you doing between April 20 and April 23rd ??? You don’t know ??
Well if you are the least bit interested in computers, there is only one place to be… The Minasi Forum meet 2008
It is your chance to hear about new technology, directly from the leading people of the industry, it is hosted by none other than Mark Minasi himself (If you have ever read a good computer book, you would have guessed that allready)

This year some of the keynote speakers are Mark Minasi, Jeremy Moskowitz, Don Jones, Rhonda Layfield, Eric B. Rux, Greg Shields and Nathan Winters, that means you will be able to learn everything from Windows 2008 to Exchange to PowerShell…

I bet right now you are thinking, this must be very expensive…….. WRONG

It only costs 450$ and with the current exchange rate, that is only 2277Kr… The event takes place in Virgina Beach, VA USA, the only other costs are hotel, getting your self there, beer money and a little bit extra for food.

Here is the current schedule (which is subject to change)
