MCT Summit EU – Helsinki, November 28-30 2013

For all of you that are currently holding an MCT status, and also to all of you that are planning to achieve this status, I highly recommend that you consider visiting MCT Summit EU event.

On this event, you will be able to attend large number of sessions from both Infrastructure, Information Worker and soft skills fields. Event gives you great opportunity to interact with other MCTs and also with highly experienced speakers. If you plan to go for MCT status, it will be great that you attend soft skills track. It will give you great perspective on important things that every MCT should know.

Registrations for this event are open, and you can find more information, as well as register at following URL : 

I hope that some of you will be able to attend this!

My sessions on upcoming events and conferences

April is always the month filled with IT conferences. As spring arises, IT people are coming out of their houses and workplaces and heading out to conferences to meet with their peers, have some fun and learn new stuff.

MSNetwork conference is getting closer–free passes for community members!

It’s less then one month left until we start another Microsoft Network conference. This one will be held in region of Teslic, small town in Bosnia. Preliminary agenda has been published already on, as well as other important details.

As before, this year we will also provide some free passes for MSNetwork for our community members. All user group leaders will get some free conference passes for community members. For MSCommunity user group, we plan to organize our regular meeting in a third week of March, and we will use that occasion to provide these free passes to some meeting attendees.

For those of you who don’t plan to come to our community meeting, you can still leverage early bird price – I’m sure that MSNetwork conference is “best buy” conference in region. For a very small price, you will get extraordinary sessions and great speakers. Don’t miss it!

Exchange Server 2013 course–for MSCommunity members

As usual, when we deliver new Microsoft courses, we always save some seats for community members. We will make no exception this time, so I’m glad that I can announce that we will provide 2 free seats on 20342A course (Exchange Server 2013 Advanced Solutions) for MSCommunity members. This course is scheduled to start on Feb 25th and it ends on Feb 28th (4 days). Course will be delivered by Stanley Reimer and myself. We were both authoring this course. More details about course content can be found here.

As before, active MSCommunity members will be preferred. If you are interested, email me directly.

See you!

ITPro Private Cloud Camp (or Belgrade, here I come again)

After very successful Windows Server 2012 ITCamp that I delivered in December 2012 in Microsoft Serbia, we scheduled another event, this time with Private Cloud as main topic. This whole day event will be held in Microsoft Serbia on Feb 11. Beside myself, my colleagues Ljubomir Ivanis and Predrag Jelesijevic will also participate in delivering content.
We plan to talk about following topics:

  • Windows Server 2012 as a private cloud platform
  • Hyper-V 3.0
  • VMM 2012 SP1 – private cloud virtualization management
  • System Center 2012 family – enabling private cloud

I’m sure we’ll deliver great content and have a great feedback from participants, like we did last time!

See you in Belgrade!

My session on tomorrow’s MSCommunity meeting–Exchange Server 2013 Transport services

Tomorrow we will have MSCommunity Bosnia meeting, with two sessions. One session will be delivered by our colleague Ana Mihalj, about SQL Server 2012 HA technologies. Another session will be delivered by myself, and most of it will be actually based on this picture (taken from MS Technet):


In fact, I will be talking about transport services in Exchange Server 2013. Unlike Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013 does not have dedicated Hub and Edge Transport server roles. During my session, I will help you understand how transport services now works on new Exchange Server 2013 role architecture. We will also take a look at the new EAC interface and some other cool features of new Exchange.

See you tomorrow at Logosoft Edukacija classroom @6pm.

MSNetwork 3.0–Call for content is open!


It’s great to announce that MSNetwork 3.0 call for content is now open. You can submit your sessions by using online form at this link.

If you didn’t catch that before, third Bosnian Microsoft conference will be held in Banja Vrucica hotel complex in place near Teslic (around 180 km from Sarajevo), on 3rd and 4th April 2013.

I’m one of the content owners, and I’m really looking forward to see some great sessions. As last year, I will be managing ITPro and Community Experts tracks. This year we renamed Community track to Community Experts to emphasize the type of sessions we expect to have there. So, if you were thinking that Community track is kind of degraded comparing to others, think twice – we expect this to be premier track for experts, and hope to have Level 400 sessions there.

Beside these two tracks we will also have Business and Developer tracks, managed by my colleague Enis Sahinovic. One more thing is new this year – we have one new track called Learning Solutions. In this track we will try to present some learning solutions built on MS platforms. It will be great to see what Microsoft partners from Bosnia and Herzegovina have to offer in this field.

If you are not the speaker, keep your eye on – registration for attendees will be opened soon. We also expect to have MSNetwork 3.0 Windows Phone app available soon.

For more details about conference (for speakers) I recommend that you visit MSDN BIH Blog on this link.

See you soon in Teslic!
