Microsoft Ignite

About 10 months ago i flew out to Houston, Texas to attend TechEd North America 2014. Now, I´ve been given the possibility to also attend this years event. This time, It´s called Microsoft Ignite and that´s a really big change since last year. TechEd is no more and instead of hosting multiple events, Microsoft have made a fusion of several events and is now hosting one big event instead.
The past MS conferences of the fusion is:

  • Sharepoint conference
  • Lync conference
  • Project conference

TechEd North America 2014 is right around the corner

Today it is just a week left until TechEd North America 2014 opens up in Houston, Texas when Brad Anderson delivers his keynote on stage in front of all the attendees. For those of us that registered for the pre-conference, the event will kick-start one day earlier on this coming Sunday with several tracks. I´m really looking forward to this event and i think it will be great.

It can be quite tricky to plan the sessions since there are so much to see. I will at least try to attend as many Operations Manager breakout sessions as I can so if you are interested in my blog, that´s where you´ll find me 🙂
