An Overview of Teched Australia 2012

Hi there!

Last week we had Teched Australia 2012 in Gold Coast.

For the second year I had the opportunity to participate with 2 Instructor-Led Labs talking about the Sideloading Windows 8 Applications and using App-V with SCCM 2012. I also presented a exam cram session full of tips and tricks to pass in the exam 70-247 – Configuring and Deploying a Private Cloud with System Center 2012. I got some very nice feedbacks and no problems with the timing during the presentations (last year my exam cram should be 60 minutes and I finished in 140 min Smile)

This year we also had lots of sessions about Private Cloud and Windows Server 2012. A few Program Managers from US came to present a couple of sessions and we had amazing tracks covering all new features of Windows Server 2012, Windows 8 and System Center. Particularly I think the Hyper-V sessions with Ben Armstrong (Virtual PC Guy) were pretty cool.

I met lots of IT Pros, ex-students (chicken users), MVPs and Virtualisation Specialists. I definitely enjoyed every single day of the event.

Didn’t make Teched this year?! Not a problem… You can check all sessions online. They are available on

The party this year was full on! Lots of cool things such as laser tag, comedy shows, movies, balloon soccer (sort of) and much more. 

For my surprise I also won a helicopter flight and a limo lift. We had a flight around Gold Coast and I went to the airport taken by the limo. That was awesome!

Here are some pictures from the event.


I reckon it was the best Teched Australia ever and I’m looking forward for next year.

Hopefully we can meet there again!
