[Events] Code Camp 2009 at Buenos Aires

Again, another excellent Microsoft event took place last month: Code Camp 2009. And I had the great pleasure to participate with two conferences, Hyper-V and Windows Server 2008 R2 Clustering.


Code Camp Buenos Aires series officially began in 2007 and appeared as a great opportunity for students and academic cells interact directly with the community, not only participating in conferences but also preparing small demos and telling their story about their work with Microsoft’s technologies.

I had the chance to participate in all of them, but this year’s Code Camp represented the biggest event of the series, with over 50 conferences regarding IT, developing, gaming, methodologies. Here’s a quick review of my participation:

Hyper-V Para Suegras

Translated in “Hyper-V for Mother-In-Laws” (don’t ask me, ask Alejandro Ponicke, he came up with the title). I presented this one with a good friend of mine, Alberto “Beto” Ortega.


The main idea resided in present an introduction to virtualization and Hyper-V with the main features included in Windows Server 2008 R2. Using also a small review of Hyper-V clustering and Live Migration.

The presentation for Hyper-V (in Spanish) can be download it from here.

Desmitificando Clustering en Windows Server 2008 R2

Translated in “Demystifying Clustering in Windows Server 2008 R2”. Here, I had the chance to go a little further about Hyper-V clustering and presented the main idea and benefits of clustering with Windows Server 2008 R2.


We’ve made a small review about the process in Windows Server 2003 and the process using Windows Server 2008 R2, features included like cluster validation, Clustered Shared Volume (CSV), Geo Clusters, clustering myths and best practices. And also we’ve discussed about clustering with SQL Server, using a demo of a SQL Server 2008 R2 (CTP August) cluster.

The presentation for clustering (Spanish also) can be download it from here.

As always, I had a lot of fun and I’m looking forward for the next event: Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2 Official Launch (late November). We’ll see each other then!


Here’s some of the crew involved: Miguel Saez and Alejandro Ponicke
