December 2017 MNSCUG Meeting

The December 2017 Minnesota System Center User Group meeting will be Tuesday, December 12th from 4:30pm to 7pm at the MTC in Edina. 3601 W 76th St #600, Minneapolis, MN 55435

A Taste of MMS is here! MMS revolves around community. The Systems Management community is one of the best out there in terms of knowledge and willingness to help each other out. In December, we want to hear more from our local community members in Minnesota. Everyone has something they do well, and we want you to share something of yours with the group. We're not talking a long session here. Just take 2-5 minutes of your time to come up and show something you do well. 10 random participants will receive an Amazon Echo Dot or Google Home Mini as prizes. If you need a lab environment to use, we will have one available on hand.

We also have rescheduled MNSCUG elections to December due to some logistics issues in October. Come ready to vote.

Two members of Microsoft's Windows Servicing and Delivery Quality division will be in town as well to talk to people about the challenges with delivering Windows as a Service. Bring your feedback for this opportunity to help make Windows Servicing easier for all.

Thanks for being such an amazing community, and we look forward to seeing you all in December!

This meeting will be sponsored by MMS with food provided. Don't forget to register for MMS 2018!
