Block out your diary from February 3rd until February 5th. The great guys at Microsoft DX are running another TechDays Online event and it’s absolutely worth your time. I had the absolute pleasure to be involved last year and will again this year, both in front of and behind the camera.
For those who don’t know about the event, TechDays Online is three days (and one evening, this year) of technical content delivered by MVPs and Microsoft evangelists across a broad range of topics. Whilst you watch the sessions, streaming live through the power of the internet, you can ask questions in the chat channel. Some of those questions may find their way to the speaker during the session, but all will be picked up by a team of experts backstage, fuelled by caffeine and sugar.
Each day covers a different topic area and is lead by one of the DX team. Tuesday is led by Ed Baker and is around Devices and managing a mobile first world. I’ll be talking about Azure Active Directory, Robert is doing a session on Internet of Things and we are joined by a great line up of MVPs. Tuesday evening is An evening with Office 365; Wednesday sees Andrew Fryer curating The Journey to the cloud-first world; finally on Friday, Martin Beeby is in the chair for Multi-device cross platform development. Richard is involved in that final day.
Content on Tuesday is more relevant for IT pros, Wednesday is a mix of IT Pro and developer content and Thursday is aimed at developers. Having said that, I learned something useful across all the days of the last event and I’d urge you to tune in for all three. Hook a PC up to a screen in the office and stream it in the background for everyone if you can’t dedicate time – you won’t regret it!
In addition to presenting sessions, I will be on the chat stream across all three days, chipping in where I can.
Oh, and did I mention that Mary Jo Foley will be there too?
There’s still plenty of time to register at http://aka.ms/techdays2015 so what are you waiting for?
