As most people working with Microsoft products, I was not able to attend the Microsoft Management Summit 2013 unfortunately.
These sessions have been recorded though and are available now at Channel 9 and a great overview of sessions can be found here. This means you can watch them wherever and whenever it is convenient for you.
You can also use this great PowerShell script created by Stefan Stranger to download the MMS 2013 videos.

Like many other people nowadays, I have a network share containing my photos, videos and documents. I prefer to access these over the network, which is possible using explorer.
The problem however (especially on my Windows 8 tablet), is that this method in general does not work (properly) for Windows 8 apps. Instead they extensively use the Windows libraries (Documents, Music, Pictures, Videos).
So my first thought was to simply add the content on the network share to the Libraries. Apparently this is not how Microsoft wants it to be used, since I got an error stating: “This network location can’t be included because it is not indexed.”
I don’t need/want it to be indexed though, so I went to look for other solutions and found elaborate step-by-step guides. I also found the Win Library Tool, which simplifies adding an unindexed network location to the Windows libraries.
I still hope Microsoft will make it easier to add unindexed locations to the library though.

The videos of the “Introduction to Hyper-V Jump Start” have been posted to Microsoft Virtual Academy:
Unfortunately however, the link to the Q&A transcript has only been sent by mail to participants. The Q&A has very valuable information in it as well, so be sure to take a look at it here.
[EDIT] I mailed the MVA people and they added the Q&A to the MVA website as well. Love the MVA [EDIT]

In the last half year, it’s been a very busy time for me because of all the new Microsoft products being released. As a result of this, I unfortunately haven’t been able to look into the newly added features and capabilities in VMware vSphere 5.1
Luckily however, VMware has released these free videos covering what’s new in VMware vSphere 5.1. This should make it easier to get up-to-date again.
I hope you enjoy it.
