Be awesome, network hard and embrace the cloud: Intergenite highlights, TechEd NZ 2014

Every year we hit TechEd NZ with a vengeance and make sure we bring a splash of yellow to proceedings ( see here for a recap of this year’s  splash of yellow ). And every year our TechEd attendees – speakers and delegates alike – return to work both tired and invigorated, full of new ideas (and looking forward to some early nights). ... read full post

Highlights of Microsoft TechEd New Zealand 2013 (Part I)

We’ve been reporting back on our TechEd highlights and exploits each year since the Intergen Blog began (for the historians amongst you – see 2008 , 2008 ; 2009 ; 2010 ; 2011 ; 2012 ), and this year is no different. The only difference now is that, with the number of Intergenites that descended on New Zealand’s preeminent annual tech event  this year – at last count: 27 delegates, five speakers, one video star , and a cast of supporters in The Hub – we can’t possibly contain our highlights to a single blog. ... read full post

Getting excited about NAV 2013

The last time I wrote an Intergen blog post on Dynamics NAV was in December 2010 when Microsoft had just released NAV 2009 R2. That was ages ago, so why, you might ask, do I feel compelled to write about NAV again? I'll tell you why. I'm filled with the joy of NAV. I'm standing on my sofa and proclaiming to the world that, for the first time in years, I am excited about NAV. ... read full post

Tech.Ed highlights and photo recap

Tech·Ed 2011 was my very first and it was definitely an eye opener into the technology industry for me. Geeks from all over New Zealand came together to see what the technology space had on offer and left bystanders with ‘the cloud’ (and rugby) indented in everyone’s minds. ... read full post

Intergen out in force at this year’s Tech•Ed New Zealand

Tech·Ed New Zealand is next week, and our team is busy giving their presentations a final spit and polish. And for those of us not taking to the podium, there’s plenty of other prep work to be done, readying ourselves for our proctoring duties at the Hands on Labs (our friendly and ever-yellow team will be on hand once again to steer you in the right direction once you hit the Labs) and making sure our presence in this year’s Marketplace is up to scratch and suitably appealing for the punters… We can’t say too much on that front just yet lest we give the game away, but visit us again here at the Intergen blog on Tuesday next week and we’ll let you in on one of our little secrets… (and a behind the scenes look at how we magicked it up). ... read full post

Countdown to TechEd 2009

The build-up for TechEd happens over a short period and each year it is pretty much the same – a group of enthusiastic Intergenites put their hands up to be part of the TechEd team for the year, working tirelessly to ensure the labs run and virtual machines match, a small group work on the infrastructure and interfaces, someone themes the Intergen stand, and of course there is always someone overseeing the whole operation. To give you an insight into the work required as a lab tester there is a total of 209 VMs to run through and verify, a similar number of lab scripts to review, and then each lab needs to be run through from end to end. For most this work happens on top of normal project work. It is coordinated out of Wellington and...... read full post

Proper prior preparation, planning and procedure prevents poor performance

I missed the New Zealand vs South Africa Rugby game in the weekend. To be frank, under most circumstances it wouldn’t have been a bad game to have missed but I had been talking it up so much with the ex-pat South African manager of the lodge I’m staying at in Zambia that turning up right on the full-time whistle was more than a little embarrassing. However the funniest part of the whole debacle and the part that I hope that you, dear reader, might take some value from is how I missed the game in the first place. ... read full post
