Project 2013 Ignite

ProjectIgniteNearly three years ago I wrote about the excellent Project 2010 Ignite training that was delivered in Sydney. This week Christophe & Jan made the trek down to Australia again to deliver the 2013 version of the training, Project 2013 Ignite.

Just like before, the training offers a deep dive into the delta between the 2010 and 2013 products and is chock full of information, demonstrations and most importantly, interaction with other PPM partners from around the region, customers and the Microsoft field.

Prior to the training I thought I knew the 2013 features pretty well, but Christophe and Jan soon showed that wasn’t the case.  The sessions cover all aspects of Project & Project Server including Project Online, Business Intelligence and Reporting, the new App store & associated opportunities, developer deep dive and lots and lots of IT pro content. You can read more of the full agenda here.

Ignite - Jan has changed roles?

Whilst the Australian leg of Ignite is over, there are still opportunities to attend the training either in person or virtually via Lync. If you are a PPM & SharePoint consultant or a customer wanting to know more about the 2013 wave, you would be silly not to attend.


Three new Project 2010 demo videos

Today whilst looking around the Project site I noticed some new videos covering a number of new features of Project 2010. I was so impressed with them, I thought I would post them here so you can watch them too.

The video’s cover off the following topics:

As well as the excellent instruction the presenter provides, there are also a number of step-by-step walkthroughs which take you through each of the features in more detail.

Don’t forget to check out the main Microsoft Project site, which contains links to a wealth of training material and other useful information about Project and Project Server.

Free EPMU Training

As noted over on Christophe’s blog, Microsoft have now made available free of charge online EPMU training courses covering:

Certainly an excellent way of spending some downtime if you want to skill up on all things EPM.
