Registration is now sold out for Microsoft Ignite 2019, which will have a stupendous diversity and tech program!

Are you going? And are you going to the preday? Let us know here so we can connect!

 

We'll definitely want to take a group photo Monday night at the expo party, so watch for that. 

 

If you're going solo and looking for dinner buddies, or a group to hang with at the big party, let us know. 

 

What other ideas/suggestions do you have?

I will be there! It's a long way to come from Australia, but I wouldn't miss it. And I'll be bringing Dundee the Down Under Dino for the first time. Can't wait!

I just made it in before they sold out and started the waitlist. Approval for these kinds of things is very slow in higher ed. Really hoping my colleagues get called from the list!

I'll be there. Arriving Sunday.

It can be. Make sure you use the session scheduler. I enter everything I want to attend then go back and weed it out. The best tip I can give you is bring comfortable shoes. You will do a LOT of walking.
