I finished drafting a presentation last night that I am doing at the Hyper-V.nu event in Amsterdam next week. I have 1 hour to present on networking in Windows Server 8 Hyper-V. As I wrapped up the draft, I looked back and thought “Oh crap!”. There is a lot of content in this deck.
This morning on the way to work, I remembered this time 3 years ago. I did a road show with Microsoft Ireland and presented on the topic of Windows Serer 2008 R2 Hyper-V with Dave Northey (DPE, MSFT IE). We covered all the features of that release in about 60-90 minutes.
Hans Vredevoort (MVP also presenting on storage at the Hyper-V.nu event) tweeted over the weekend that he’d need 3 days to present his topic completely. I empathise with him. We’ve so much content to present. I think my hour is going to be a blinding flash of PowerPoint, TLA’s, and diagrams. The storage side of Windows 8 is damned exciting (see a sample here), but the amount of stuff in networking is frakkin’ crazy. There’s absolutely no comparison between Windows Server 8 Hyper-V and its predecessor. It should be an interesting day on the 19th.
