Is there session IDs associated with these.  Would like to utilize the Ignite resource downloader. 


Hi @Ascent_TK no. These videos are not available on the Ignite session builder. That's why we created this landing page. Thanks for watching!

Frequent Visitor

Is there any news on Intune Delivery Optimization and MS Connected Cache which was presented at last year's Ignite?



Hi @JohnMoore33 unfortunately nothing new to report at this time. More to come in the coming weeks or months, but not just yet.

Thanks for posting this in one spot! I wasn't able to watch live and this helped me catch up
