[EN] Reminiscence Boulevard: MCT Zero Day 2012

Copy of MCTZeroDay2012_05Just one day before Microsoft TechEd Europe 2012 I had great opportunity to be a part of fantastic crowd of Microsoft Certified Trainers from whole Europe and not only for Europe. In Holiday Inn hotel (almost at the end of Amsterdam) almost one hundred MCT’s spent six hour on internal training, discussions, exchanging experiences and “sharing connections”. In few sessions – sorry all are under NDA (Non-Disclosure Agreement) – in my opinion we got more practical information than on months spending on the internet forums.

Except very interesting sessions about certification, trainings, subject matter expert job and most awesomeness session about MCT’s Travels (by Thomas Lee) I was very happy and proud to had big opportunnity to meet new trainers from whole Europe (and not only), sharing experience exchange ideas and at the last grab fantastic MCT T-Shirts. If You are MCT – You must go to next Summit (In September in Warsaw) or on the biggest conferences like TechEd Europe, North America or for example New Zealand.
