Wow, so much to look forward to. Thanks for bringing these together in one place, it will make it easier to keep track of these sessions. For those of us that can't attend, those daily wrap-up’s are going to be particularly helpful. 

Very cool. I will add these to my schedule.

Thanks @Stephen Rose, much easier than the Ignite session picker, now we just need the estimated time to walk between the sessions and my day may be decided for me! See you there.

And don't forget 

THR3026 - Migrating home folders to OneDrive for Business 

With the new and improved control over OneDrive for Business and all new enterprise features, it is about time to migrate users' home folders. Why should you use your expensive on-premises storage and backup systems, when the data is much more accessable for the user in OneDrive for Business anyway. This session is full of tips, tricks, and demos.
