When: Welcome time is 6:30PM and the presentation will begin at 7:00PM. Everyone is welcome!

Supper and Refreshments will be provided.

CANITPRO.NET, Microsoft Canada’s IT Professional resource blog, has gone to great lengths to provide resources to support the deployment, management and utilization of the Windows 8.1 offering. However, further inquiries are sent to us via social venues, like Twitter or email, in regards to Microsoft’s latest client offering. To provide further support, we will be conducting a user group tour across Canada to personally address IT Professionals questions about Windows 8.1.
Join Anthony Bartolo for a 90-minute discussion around the features, functionality, and pretty much any other question you have surrounding the Windows 8.1 offering. Live demos will be provided in response to questions to further enable the audience to better understand what is possible with Windows 8.1.

So, come ready with your questions surrounding Windows 8.1 as we look forward to the conversation. If you wish, please email us your questions ahead of the session at CDN-ITPro-Feedback@microsoft.com
