In case you are lacking in some tech related places to be, here are a few good options for the upcoming week.
November 2nd - You should vote, of course. But when you are finished that, swing by the Pacific IT Professionals meeting in San Francisco. There will be a presentation from NetApp on storage solutions, followed by two Microsoft specific topics - BPOS (Business Productivity Online Suite) and MDOP (Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack). I'll be doing the MDOP presentation, so if you aren't sure what applications come inside that pack and what they do, this will be a great chance for you to get an overview.
November 3-4th - The gogoNet LIVE! IPv6 Conference in San Jose. I hear the pre-conference workshops are booked up, but it's not to late to attend the 2 days of sessions on planning and transitioning to IPv6. I'll be helping out with some of the conference logistics on the 3rd and am hoping to slip into a few of the presentations as well.
Today and the next couple Thursdays - Callahan, a Microsoft MVP and book author on SharePoint, is offering up several free webinar presentations on SharePoint Foundation. Today's session is already started, but you might want to check out what she has to offer in the coming weeks. If I was migrating my current SharePoint WSS 3.0 installation to Foundations, I'd start my planning with anything Callahan has to offer.
