Opportunity to Learn about Windows 7

Over the next couple of months, Donald Donais will be giving three different presentations on Windows 7.  These sessions will deal with some of the main changes with Windows 7. 
The first seminar on July 2nd will concentrate primarily on getting to know what is different about Windows 7.  What makes this client operating system different than Windows XP?  This seminar titled “Welcome to Windows 7” will touch base on:

  • New user interface
  • Aero
  • System Improvements:  Problem Step Recorder, Boot from VHD,  and Windows 7 XP Mode
  • Changes in Management Tools
  • Control Panel

Security is something that many companies are concerned about.  This concern ranges from locking down data that is found on and off a client to making sure only certain applications are allowed to run on the organizations infrastructure.  This August 7th Seminar “Security in Mind – Windows 7” will talk about:

  • User Account Control
  • Enhanced Auditing
  • Improved Network Security
  • AppLocker
  • BitLocker

Finally on September 10th “Moving Ahead with Windows Networking – Windows 7”, we will be showcasing improvements with Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.  Both of these applications will be released at the same time and they include some great functionality you will only get by teaming them up.

  • DirectAccess
  • VPN Reconnect
  • BranchCache
  • DNS Security

All of these events are associated with New Horizons of MN and co-sponsored by Microsoft’s Springboard Technical Expert Program (STEP).  STEP is an evangelist program that was created to help promote Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2.  Because of this sponsorship by STEP, if there are 50 or more registrations for a Windows 7 seminar, you will be entered into a drawing for a one year subscription to TechNet Plus, valued at $349.99.  All registrations for the TechNet Plus subscription giveaway are based on completed surveys for each event.

All of the Windows 7 seminars are available local or remote.  To register for these events go to www.nhmn.com and type in Windows 7 and these events will be available.  Click on the event desired and there will be a link to Register.  Hope to see you there.
