Here’s when and where you can find me in Berlin this week:

Microsoft Online Services booth (Unified Communications area) in the TLC area (3.2)

I’ll be there tomorrow (Tuesday) during the evening reception – 6:15-8:00 pm. Obviously, I will be happy to answer any questions on Exchange Online, SharePoint Online, LiveMeeting, OCS Online and sign

And then, both Tuesday and Wednesday:

For developers:

BOF10: Developing on Azure: Stories from the Trenches
Tuesday, November 10, 2009, 12:20-13:00 (lunch break)
Interactive theater 5, Yellow – Hall 3.2

Have you given Windows Azure a try? Whether it was just kicking the tires or you are deep in the enterprise application development, let’s get together and share the lessons we learned on the way.

For IT Professionals:

BOF13: Going to the Cloud: Are we crazy?
Wednesday, November 11, 2009, 12:20-13:00 (lunch break)
Interactive theater 6, Pink – Hall 3.2

Are cloud services about efficiency or negligence? About being able to outsource commodity services and concentrate on core competence or loosing control and risking getting out of compliance? Which IT services can be safely moved to the cloud and which should stay in house? Let’s get together and discuss the present and the future of Software + Services use in our companies, share success stories, lessons learned, discuss concerns and best practices.

And you can obviously contact me by email or twitter. So if you are at TechEd Europe 2009 – I am looking forward to seeing you this week!

There are two cloud-related sessions in the “community” section of Microsoft TechEd Europe 2009 and you need to vote for them here if you are attending the conference (and obviously if you want them in the agenda).

Basically, both are on cloud computing: one for developers and the other for IT professionals:

Developing on Azure: Stories from the Trenches

Have you given Windows Azure a try? Whether it was just kicking the tires or you are deep in the enterprise application development, let’s get together and share the lessons we learned on the way.

Both topics are near and dear to my heart, and as a matter of fact, will be moderated by me should they get into the agenda.

So if you want these sessions in Berlin this November, please cast your vote here.

Technet Edge posted the interview David Tesar made with me while at TechEd last month. Check it out here.

Edge-Cloud-InterviewDmitry Sotnikov of Quest Software, gives us his perspective on services in the cloud and answers some of the frequently asked questions in his sessions such as:

– When is the right time to move to the cloud?
– What roles/services are not good to think about moving to the cloud
– What types of things you need to be thinking about when moving your services to the cloud
– How is portability a concern on where you want to host your applications?
– Where he sees benefits with Azure and BPOS over the competition

If you are at Microsoft TechEd next week there will be a few sessions I will be giving there:

Birds-of-a-Feather,”Going to the Cloud: Are We Crazy?” Dmitry Sotnikov, 4:30 p.m. Tuesday May 12, room 501A – this one is IT-oriented discussion of risks and benefits of putting your IT systems into the cloud.

PowerShell Ask the Experts Session, Dmitry Sotnikov and Kirk Munro, 12:30 p.m. Wednesday May 13, Quest booth 808 – this will actually be PowerShell – not cloud – oriented.

Birds-of-a-Feather, “Developing on Azure: Stories from the Trenches,” Dmitry Sotnikov, 6:45 p.m. May 14, room 502A. A developer-oriented discussion so everyone who is kicking the Azure tires can share there war stories and get advice.

“Case Study: Migrating Existing Client Applications to Windows Azure,” Dmitry Sotnikov, 2:45 p.m. May 15, room 515B – my main session of the show. I will talk about how Quest is using Windows Azure to turn its products into SaaS offerings.

Also, check out this session if you are interested specifically in Exchange Online and corresponding migration path: “Migration to Microsoft Online Services from Exchange and Non-Microsoft Platforms,” Quest’s Keith Ridings and Microsoft’s Erik Ashby, 4:30 p.m. May 14, room 403B.

Hope to see you next week!

Looks like I will be presenting at Microsoft TechEd US in LA this May. I have just got notified that the session got approved. Will be my first full hour TechEd session (I was only co-presenting at previous TechEds) – so I am really looking forward to the event.

Case Study: Migrating Existing Client Applications to Windows Azure

Session Type: Breakout Session

Windows Azure is not just for web applications. This new platform can dramatically simplify deployment and maintenance of applications which traditionally required on-premise deployments. In this presentation we will look how one of Microsoft ISV partners – Quest Software – took an existing on-premise rich-client application and re-architected it for Windows Azure.

Speaker: Dmitry Sotnikov
