Have you ever wanted just a few minutes with someone from the Microsoft Windows team to ask a question, share a thought, get a best practice, or maybe just better understand a feature? Well, here is your chance.

Many of you remember Stephen Rose as the previous owner of the Springboard Series. In addition to sharing his thoughts via this blog, he also led a series of Springboard Series Tours across the U.S., Canada, Europe, and South America. I had a chance to catch up with Stephen and ask about his latest project, which we first announced in the May issue of the Springboard Series Insider.

Im excited to announce our Windows Unplugged Tour. Windows Unplugged is similar to the Springboard Series Tours we did in the past, but scaled down since its just me who will be presenting. I'll be walking IT pros through the latest Windows and Windows Phone features, the newest devices, and Windows management tools. I'll be encouraging the audience to drive the discussions and I will take everyone's feedback back to Redmond. Ill also have lots of demos so it will be a great event.

There will be five Windows Unplugged events in the U.S.: Atlanta, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Indianapolis, and Chicago. I am hoping to visit a few more cities at a later date. We will feed and water everyone as well as give away some software, gift cards, and a maybe even a few cool Windows 8.1 devices. If folks want to attend, just check out the registration info is below. We only have space for around 150 people per event so folks should sign up quickly.
