ENTER FOR A CHANCE TO WIN A MICROSOFT HUMANS OF IT SWAG BOX

 

3 easy steps:

1. RSVP and attend at least one of the eight Microsoft Humans of IT sessions. View the entire session list at https://aka.ms/MSIgniteHumans. Be sure to hit the RSVP button to guarantee your spot since they are limited capacity only. Unfortunately, only folks who tune in live are eligible to participate as we will be picking winners that same day and session recordings will not be available until after the conference has ended. 

 

2. After the session, comment on this blog post below with your response to the 3 questions below:

- What was your favorite Microsoft Ignite Humans of IT session and why? (Please note: Only entries mentioned Humans of IT sessions will be eligible)

- Why is it so important to embrace the human side of tech?

- How have you connected with other humans during the virtual Microsoft Ignite conference?

 

3. When you're done posting the above response, post a tweet with the URL to your response with the hashtags #MSIgnite #HumansofIT so that we can contact you if you're the winner. 

 

Two winners will be selected at the end of Day 1 (Sept 22) and Day 2 (Sept 23) of Microsoft Ignite.

Terms and conditions apply.
