Microsoft Learning is excited to partner with Microsoft Senior Product Marketing and Community Manager, Stephen Rose and Senior Technical Evangelist Joey Snow on a new one-day Microsoft Jump Start! This special live, online course will be comprised of six fast-paced, demo-rich sessions and is tailored for IT Pros who are ready to move beyond the industry hype of Windows 8 and clearly understand how this new platform will enable you to improve your organization. After this course, we think you'll see why analysts and customers are reacting differently to this version of Windows.

What’s a “Jump Start” Course? Training specifically designed for experienced technologists whose jobs demand they know how to best leverage new, emerging Microsoft technologies. These advanced courses assume a certain level of expertise and domain knowledge, so they move quickly and cover topics in a fashion that enables teams to effectively map new skills to real-world situations.
Is it at all possible to have these events at different times? I am currently 12 hours ahead of PST, so 9pm to 4am is not suitable at all. I have participated in several events that are outside social hours and it really doesnt work with having a family. I feel that Microsoft is really letting down a large part of their community if they do not provide these sessions at times to suit people in other parts of the world.
@Mark - Thanks for your comment. We're thrilled to be able to offer these online training events to our community at no cost. In most cases, the presenters' schedule is a priority consideration. You're still welcome to register for the event. Recordings will be made available at a later date so you can replay the sessions at the hours that are most convenient for you.
I agree about the times, but i'm grateful that these sessions are recorded and made available afterwards :) so many thanks!
Hi Veronica. How would I get access to the recording of this online training? I have to work during the life training. Thank you much!
@Tim - The recording will be available at a later date (TBD). We'll announce it when it's up.
@Mark and @fez_man... We completely understand and agree that IT Pros in different geographies would prefer we deliver these engaging, free events at other times. We have delivered several Jump Starts at times better suited for EMEA and APAC time zones and hope to offer more in the future. As Veronica indicated, since the MSL studios are in Redmond, it can be a challenge to scheduled instructors. Thanks for the feedback, and I hope to see you online!
