Many of you have seen or heard Microsoft’s Matt Hester present at various Microsoft events. I’ve known Matt for several years, and regard him as a close personal friend (of somebody, I’m sure). His wealth of knowledge (some of it useful), his willingness to share it freely (2am phone calls), and his communication skills (ooooh, Power Point) all place him a cut above the rest. 

Ok, seriously…Matt’s excellent at what he does. And he’s reached two important milestones recently. He relocated to Ohio (Cincinnati area), and he co-authored an excellent book on Server 2008 R2 (click here for it). 

Matt, whose blog is a must see for the IT Pro (click here for it), is also responsible for helping out the local User Groups, which he’s been a long-time proponent of. 

Bottom line on all this is Matt is putting together a Microsoft “Windows Server IT Pro Community Tour,” which will reach Cleveland (ok, Beachwood) on Wednesday, March 24th. Click here for more information. 

This is a free event. There will be some food, refreshments and raffle prizes. 

See you there! (I wonder which Matt Hester we’ll get?)
