Presentations for developers, IT Pros, SQL, Office, and Personal Development will be given by fellow MCTs and presenters from Microsoft. This year’s MCT Summit will include sessions to prepare MCTs for teaching Microsoft’s Cloud computing classes. Another feature of this year’s MCT Summit will be half-day hands on labs.
A Train the Trainer (TTT) session will occur on Tuesday Oct 18. If you are an MCP aspiring to become an MCT, attend the MCT Summit’s TTT session and become a MCT upon successful completion. To learn more about the MCT Certification requirements, visit Microsoft Learning’s MCT Certification page. You can find more details here. Fee for the Train the Trainer session is $700 which includes the Train the Trainer class, MCT Summit conference fee, and your first years MCT fee to Microsoft.
Please Note: This year’s MCT NA Summit is the work of several dedicated MCTs with assistance from Microsoft, sponsors, and the IT professional association Pacific IT Professionals. The MCT Summit is being offered by MCTs for MCTs; it is not a Microsoft event.

Microsoft offers some really nice technical diagrams for SharePoint Server 2010. Many of these resources are visual representations of recommended solutions. They include poster-sized documents available in formats including Microsoft Office Visio 2007 or Microsoft Visio 2010 files (.vsd), PDF files, and XPS files.
Models are 34-by-44-inch posters that detail a specific technical area. These models are intended to be used with corresponding articles on TechNet. These models are created by using Office Visio 2007. You can modify the Visio files to illustrate how you plan to incorporate Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Products in your own environment.
The technical diagrams include the following. I have included links to the PDF files but as I mentioned above, you can also get these posters in Visio and XPS formats.
Tips for Printing Posters
If you have a plotter, you can print these posters in their full size. If you don’t have plotter, use the following steps to print on smaller paper.
Print posters on smaller paper

I am glad someone is looking out for Site Administrators. There is a lot of focus on resources for Network and SharePoint Administrators, for obvious reasons, but it’s important to also keep the Site Administrators in mind. I’ve noticed that my colleague Sharee English is often talking and blogging about Site Administrators. She recently posted a blog that lists training resources for SharePoint Site Administrators. Here’s a quote from her blog.
“Site Administrators have the largest burden when it comes to SharePoint. They are responsible for managing permissions, creating lists and libraries, and maintaining metadata. Most site administrators have never done any of these things before and may not even know what some of these things mean. Luckily there are so many resources available.”
