Microsoft Tech Summit São Paulo Dec 6-7 2017

Our third city on the Microsoft Tech Summit tour was São Paulo, Brazil! We had an amazing time getting to know the local Brazilian community - over 2,200 attendees turned out for 2 days of technical learning with Microsoft, one of our biggest events yet!

The two days of the Tech Summit São Paulo was full of content, from breakouts to workshops, to shorter theater sessions and panel discussions in the Hub.

It was so great to meet the Brazilian MVPs! Many had traveled long distances to be a part of the event. Many MVPs were part of our crew of experts, helping attendees answer questions about Azure, Microsoft 365, Data, Machine learning and more!

The Tech Community also reached a significant milestone the day before we started the Tech Summit in São Paulo - we signed up our 100,00th member! It was great to welcome more new members at the Tech Community and Tech Academy booths in Brazil.

 At the conclusion of Day 1 we had two discussion panels 'Application Platform' and 'Data and Analytics' led by MVP and RD Evilázaro Alves. MVP @Viviane Ribeiro was there and recorded the panel - you can watch it below in Portuguese:



We look forward to seeing many of you in Toronto for our next Tech Summit event! Thank you to all our MVPs for volunteering their time to help attendees getting value out of their time with us in São Paulo.
