Microsoft does a good job of bringing smaller, one day events to all main centres (and sometimes even to other smaller places) focusing in specific topics that may be of interest to SMEs - infrastructure, development, collaboration. Subscribe to the TechNet NZ newsletter or keep an eye on Nathan's blog and you will know when these happen.


I pinged Nathan about this the other day, he responded with some good links to mailing lists people should join as well.

I confess I've got much more FLOSS and linux focused so I'm a bit out of that scene, but I'd like to be more in it, so I joined the lists.

DonGould: When you run a SME, you can't just drop everything and leave the staff to support the systems and customers...  there aren't an abundance of 'other people' to do what I do, and this is the same for many folk.


What makes you think the owner will benefit more from TechEd than the technical staff? The only reason I can think of is if the owner is the only technical person and staff is just users. Even so, I am not sure TechEd is a great conference for "owners".



Christchurch and the south is full of freelancers and small guys.  We have many owners who are very technical people, not just 'managers'.

Thanks for the link to Nathans site.

and this is a reason for not holding the event in Christchurch, if its the only national venue.  if the event was there a lot of people simply wouldn't go as they are too scared of it (a big earthquake) happening again.

(i'm flying down to chch for some meetings in a week or so, just FYI)
