Kevin Harvell
What's the Deal With Windows 10?

As an active podcaster, Kevin speaks with many people around the country and has quite the insight on what's happening. Some of the things he will discuss are:

  • Experiences with the preview builds since builds were first available.
  • Clear up any cost confusion and what exactly "Free upgrade within the first year" means.
  • Upgrade process. When, why and best practices.
  • Thoughts gathered from other people who have chosen not to use the technical previews, but plan to upgrade ASAP.
  • Why what we get on July 29 will not be exactly like what was shown off at Build or prior Microsoft presentations.
  • Open forum for questions & discussion

Who is Kevin Harvell and what does he do?

These days I am often asked the question “So, what do you do?”

Often times, I simply want to respond with “How much time do you have?”

Simply stated, I am a podcaster, video producer, speaker and consultant who specializes in creating various forms of content in for consumption along with teaching others how & why they should be podcasting to expand their reach.

My most recent journey began in 2012 when I launched as an outlet to talk about my passion for devices that make our lives more productive & entertaining.

Fall of 2013 rolled around and I became a co-founder of STL Tech Talk, LLC which is the parent company to a number of web brands including STL Tech Talk, STL Tech Media, Tech Informist, MS Mobile Show and CodeCast by STL Tech Talk.
