The NEW efficiency : Philippine Windows7 Business Launch

The Philippine Windows Users Group just finished the community track at the Philippine Windows7 Business Launch “The NEW efficiency” held at the Makati Shangri-La Hotel Makati City on November 10, 2009.


It was a big event, its a long registration line with big ballrooms and big session halls.


The food is great and it was buffet! Yey!

Some last minute preparation from the team


First up is our introduction by non other than our MVP for SharePoint Elczar Adame. Followed by Jay-R Barrios (MVP for Windows Deployment) showed the crowd an overview of the new and exciting features of Windows7. He also did a sample of his expertise in deployment and image management.





Next up is Terrence Montanez, where he did a demo on Deployment Image Servicing and Management.




After installation or mass deployment, we must also migrate our end user state. John D. Delizo (Me) did a demo on User State Migration thru Windows Easy File transfer and User State Migration Tool or USMT.




Bong (Faelmar Tanada) did the Disk Management and Data Protection demo, again awing the crowd with new “server class” features of Windows7 like dynamic disks and RAID.




and then its time for the MVP for Windows Games to demo some games in Windows and also his main topic – Photography, which he really loves to do (Note the very cool Cannon EOS DSLR). He also did a demo on live essentials and the PhotoSynth.




As a finale of-course Chris (Christopher Misola) did his very coolness multi-touch demo for Windows7. This demo has wow-ed the audience for quite some time now, gaining interest on how Chris made this surface like device ! Way to go Chris, we still do a surface-like coffee table, right? We should really do our MSDN session for its SDK 😀
