Live! 360 began in Orlando, FL on Sunday, November 12 with new Pre-Conference Hands On Labs sessions. Topics included Angular and Xamarin for developers, SQL High Availability, Ethical Hacking and Windows Troubleshooting for System Admins, and SharePoint Search Management and Microsoft Team Development for the Office pros. All sessions were full day sessions.
Monday featured a selection of all day pre-conference sessions. I attended the session on Windows Security with expert Sami Laiho. These deep dive sessions let you spend an entire day with very accessible experts. In between, a sit down luncheon of chicken served on polenta with vegetables, salad, and carrot cake for dessert. While not the main reason to attend the conference, it is a bonus when the food served is this good.
Tonight is the Dine-A-Round dinner which will begin at the conference center. We will walk over to Margaritaville where we will be served complimentary appetizers. From there, we will divide up and go to dinner at one of the many great restaurants at CityWalk.
I will be there tonight in my very bright orange Hawaiian shirt. So, if you are looking for a group to hang with at the conference, you can at least look for the orange Hawaiian shirt. There will also be many of the speakers at the Dine-A-Round. I will post my dinner location on my Twitter account, @ITCertPro.
