Microsoft Ireland Windows 7 & Windows Server 2008 R2 Launch Events

September 11, 2009

Microsoft Ireland has announced the launch events for Windows 7 and W2008 R2.  Like with the TechDays tour earlier this year, there will be events in Galway, Cork, Belfast and Dublin.  The day is split into two events: a technical session aimed at the business during the afternoon and an event in the evening aimed at using Windows 7 at home.  You have to register for each event if you want to go to both.

Each attendee will receive a free copy of Windows 7 Ultimate.  It’s a legit copy you’ll be able to use.  Seats are limited and demand will be great.  That’s why Microsoft has set up a lottery for the tickets instead of the usual first-come, first-served approach.  Anyone who is already a member of the Windows user Group in Ireland will have gotten a special registration code in their mail in the last few minutes.  That will give them a better chance to get a seat because community members have a reserved allocation of seats.

I’ve been a part of the planning of the events.  I can promise that the focus is demo, demo, demo.  No one will die from allergic shock to PowerPoint.  There is a huge effort to squeeze as much as possible into the events as possible.  The Windows User Group will be trying to follow up these events in the coming months to add more detail and to cover functionality that couldn’t get squeezed into the time available at the launch events.

Here is the communication from Microsoft:

“Join us at the Windows 7 Technical Community Launch and be part of Windows history! Windows 7 is launching all over the world in the coming weeks and Microsoft Ireland are offering IT Professionals and Developers in your area, a chance to see the operating system uncovered.
