Hey Team! I’m back from Australia and New Zealand! My brain still thinks my body is “time shifted” into the future by 14 hours, but I’m recovering. My speeches were #4 and #5 ranked overall in TechEd Australia and my speeches were ranked #1 and #2 overall for the track I was in for New Zealand.
And, I just found out.. I’ll be at TechEd Europe in Berlin in November. Hot-cha!
Meanwhile, I found this fun, (very safe for work) video about how NOT to interview for an Active Directory job. The video is created by Microsoft Learning, so, ya know, there’s a Microsoft feel-good message in there (toward the end). But it’s still pretty great.
People ask me all the time if my Group Policy training class is a good way to help with your exam goals. The answer is a clear YES, though that’s not the reason I created the class. I created the class to give you real-world, hands on training you can use IMMEDIATELY.
And if my class helps you score higher on your Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 exams, then, even better. I know for sure that there’s not a lot of Microsoft “official” training on this super-duper-most-important subject. Heck, I’ve had LOTS of people take my class after first trying our the Microsoft offering or get “bad” advice from others…
“After taking Jeremy’s class, I was able to create and troubleshoot Group Policy in our environment. Others tried to convince me that the “Microsoft Standard” is to have one huge policy, but troubleshooting that policy for them was a nightmare. After they saw how easy it was to create smaller, less complicated policies, troubleshooting became a piece of cake.”
