Found an interesting IT event during my [mostly] daily check-in of my LinkedIn wall and reviewing some companies.
Stumbled on an event taking place next week called CloudToo. This was posted on the [LinkedIn] wall of Doherty Associates in the United Kingdom (U.K.).
Seems interesting. Too bad it’s in the U.K. No chance I’ll be able to attend. But does interest me regardless of my availability to commit. I’ll update this post with any videos or content disseminated from the event.

“Making a brighter future for SME’s and start-ups with the cloud”
The acronym SME typically stands for subject matter expert. The opposite to a SME would be a generalist, or as some call it a jack of all trades. For example, if you’re hiring for a job that must have Apple and Macintosh (Mac) experience then you will post for an Apple genius or Mac expert or Mac genius whatever they call them now these days. Microsoft has an official branding of MVP (Microsoft Valued Professional) but that’s only really a status symbol and special partnership between you and the company. It’s kind of like the MCP program for certification. There’s some tests that you just pass that one test and you’re MCP.
You can check the Apple or Microsoft sites to see what kind of programs they have for SMEs or IT Professionals.
MSDN and TechNet are the Microsoft channels for professionals. I think the Mac genius program would cover that but it’s just assuming. Mac is about 10% of my breadth of knowledge and experience and only with hypercard on the old Macs in the late ‘80s and the Apple II/c in the mid-80s.

This Week in Enterprise Tech on TWiT.TV is a great weekly podcast covering technology trends in the enterprise with a panel of key contributors. Some remote via IPTV. Some in studio with the presenter.
The presenter also has a blog called TheTechStop.
The Podcast [metro] app, available from the Microsoft Store app in Windows 8, is what I use typically to watch these. Although if you go to the Podcasts section of the Libraries node in the navigation pane of Windows Explorer also known as File Explorer in Windows 8.
