The Microsoft Management Summit (MMS), which will be held on April 18-22 in Las Vegas, is probably the best conference around, giving you the technical information you need to completely manage your computing environment.

Many companies send their employees to the MMS under the guise of "training." Even though the MMS is not formal training, attendees take so much great technical information back to their company that they are able to implement new things right away.

The MMS 2005 web site is located here:

Some companies have a tough time approving a visit to Vegas just because it's "Vegas." But, Las Vegas is about the only city in the U.S. that can adequately house the number of people who attend this conference.

Microsoft is reaching out in big ways. You may be aware of the numerous web blogs that proliferate the Internet, authored by Microsoft employees, but it seems that Microsoft has made a conscious effort to start interacting with the communities.

Martin Dey, the person in charge of organizing MMS 2005 at Microsoft, has created a web blog where you can read about new announcements and where he answers your questions about the conference. He is also interested in your suggestions for session content, and is offering you the chance to win a portable Media Player if you tell him what your wishes are for the event.

You can find the web blog at http://myitforum.techtarget.com/blog/MMS2005/ and you can send him your ideas at http://www.surveymonkey.com/s.asp?u=82185787472

Says Dey in his first blog post: "I'll be adding more to this blog during the week, responding to a number of questions which have come in over the past few weeks and offering tips for registration at the event. Over coming weeks I'll also have advance information about the speakers at the event, the new additions for 2005 and most important of all, details of the attendee party for 2005!"
