For those of you who are Windows admins and interested in learning about IPv6 I am doing a 3 hour session at TechMentor in Las Vegas next week, September 30th through October 4th. You can still sign up for the event. The conference over all is an excellent chance to learn from some of the best in the community, Greg Shields, Don Jones, Mark Minasi and many others. The exciting part is the change that TechMentor has put in place for their format, it is all hands on labs and deep dive sessions so you really get to learn a lot. The presenters aren't trying to sprint through content and can take the time to explain things and have much more engaging discussions about topics of interest.
My session is Mastering IPv6 for the Inspiring Windows Sever Administrator and I will be taking you from the basics of IPv6 through to some practical advise and a demo or two. So please join me in Las Vegas, perhaps we can chat all about IPv6 and what is happening with it. If not, we can always talk PowerShell, Hyper-V, System Center and Azure!
My session description:
Have you been scratching your head wondering what this IPv6 thing is all about and how it might impact you? Have you seen an IPv6 address and wondered how in the world do I subnet that? The first part of the session is focused on explaining the basics of IPv6 and how it is both different and similar to IPv4. The second part is how to set up a basic working configuration, best practices and common problems you may run into in deploying IPv6. We also cover the default assumptions Microsoft has in place for IPv6 and how that impacts your decisions and how you should manage your environment.
Hope to see you in Vegas!
