And our president, Fred Bainbridge will be speaking about UEFI:

UEFI!  It's all the rage right now and for good reason.  Successful UEFI implementation is absolutely necessary to take advantage of all kinds of new Windows 10 security features.   Let's take a deep dive into how to manage this using native and vendor tools with ConfigMgr for each major hardware vendor (HP, Dell, Lenovo).   There are some key lessons learned from field experience that will be shared that should help smooth out your UEFI implementation. 

All attendees will be entered to win a pair of Bose QuietComfort 20 Acoustic Noise Cancelling Headphones

Elections will be held immediately with ballots provided at the door.

Our Gold sponsor this month is Adaptiva!

March 2016 Meeting Notes

March 2016 meeting, sponsored by Veeam (thanks!)

This was a round table discussion.  This was a really interactive night.  Round tables discussions are always a great time!  Topics of conversation touched everything from EMS to Software Update groups. No detailed notes were able to be recorded.  The conversation was simply too lively to keep up.

September 2016 MNSCUG Meeting

The September user group meeting is going to be a good one.  We are gathering Wednesday the 21st, 2016 from 4:30pm to 7:00pm at the Microsoft Edina HQ building - 6th floor.  Please register in advance and please don't register unless you actually plan on attending.  We rely on the registration numbers when we order food.
