[Events] Overview of Code Camp 2010 and Materials
As last year’s event, Code Camp 2010 had over 50 conferences running all day regarding not only IT stuff but also developing, gaming, software architecture, cloud computing, etc.
Here’s a short summary of my presentations: “Hyper-V en Windows Server 2008 R2 e interoperabilidad con Linux” (“Hyper-V R2 and interoperability with Linux”) and “Windows 7 Para todos” (“Windows 7 for Everyone”).
Hyper-V R2 and Linux
I presented this topic with another IT geek Guillermo Sanchez, where we started with an overview about hypervisors architecture, Hyper-V basics and then some interesting demos with Linux virtual machines.
The main idea in this presentation was talk about Hyper-V Integration Services working in Linux virtual machines: Benefits and how to install IS in SUSE Linux Enterprise Server (SLES) and Red Hat. Plus, some bonus features about virtual machines backups and interoperability with other platforms.
The presentation can be downloaded from this link.
Also, Guillermo posted the video on his blog.
Migrating Windows XP to Windows 7
The main idea of this conference was talk about how simple is migrating Windows XP machines to Windows 7 using Microsoft Deployment Toolkit (MDT) 2010, including also the migration of user profiles maintaining even Internet Explorer history.
We’ve started talking about common scenarios and problems we usually find in the migrating process of operating systems. Using the MDT 2010 console I had the chance to show the simple process for creating the necessary environment to achieve a migration: How to create a deployment share, import an operating system, create a task sequence, automate deployments with CustomSettings.ini and Bootstrap.ini, using MDT database.
And of course a live demo where we refreshed a Windows XP machine with a functional profile (My Documents, My Pictures, IE Favorites, etc) to a Windows 7 machine with the same profile imported.
