    Great question, Aleksander! Sorry to hear you can't join us for the live sessions. Hard to beat hearing it live and having the ability to ask to the experts questions right then. Of course, we understand though! Yes, we'll be recording all sessions and will post them a week or so after the event.

    They usually do record them and put them on TechNet Edge or Channel 9.

    Sounds exiting. Hopefully you'll make more of these in European timezones also.

    I always like this kind of sessions, Too bad they are not a series where you can get a certification on.
