Promo So here is our final promo for Microsoft TechDays Online - which runs over three days this week from 6-8 November.

This is a lovely opportunity for IT pros and developers to explore the latest developments in Microsoft client, server, cloud, system management and developer tools technologies.

This year it comes with added incentive too: Steve Ballmer will be here to answer questions on developments in the Windows platform and its expanding family of devices. Email ukitpro@microsoft.com if you have specific questions for Steve.

And this just in, on Wed November 6 Will Greenwood will also be popping in to talk about devices he used during The British & Irish Lions tour and the Deputy CIO of Lotus F1 will be sharing his thoughts on Office 365.
