Microsoft Opens Registration for Ignite
Microsoft has officially opened the doors to register for Ignite, a conference designed to help businesses get the most out of new technologies and learn more about Microsoft’s offerings, as well as providing deep technical training, too. The conference will be taking place from September 26 to 30 in Atlanta, Georgia.
The event is primarily geared toward business users, unlike its Build conference in the spring, which is a developer-oriented event. This means that there are training sessions, interactive labs, one-on-one discussions, product road maps, and much more.
The conference has several different pass options, starting at $300 and running all the way up to $2,220, depending on your needs. There are also education and student discounts available; bulk discounts are available as well.
What is “Inside Microsoft Teams”?
“Inside Microsoft Teams” is a webcast series, now in Season 4 for IT pros hosted by Microsoft Product Manager, Stephen Rose. Stephen & his guests comprised of customers, partners, and real-world experts share best practices of planning, deploying, adopting, managing, and securing Teams. You can watch any episode at your convenience, find resources, blogs, reviews of accessories certified for Teams, bonus clips, and information regarding upcoming live broadcasts. Our next episode, “Polaris Inc., and Microsoft Teams- Reinventing how we work and play” will be airing on Oct. 28th from 10-11am PST.
If you attended the event last year, there are two primary changes you should be aware of. The event is no longer being held in Chicago, as Atlanta is the new home. Also, the dates have changed, where the event is now being held in the fall. Last year, Ignite followed directly after Build, which made it hard to attend both events as the two conferences were only separated by a weekend.
Although this event will likely fill up quickly, it will not sell out like Build did in one minute. If you are planning on attending, it’s better to register sooner, rather than later, but this venue is much larger than the Moscone center in San Francisco where Build takes place.
