Today we are announcing an update to the Community Events space which is designed to make it easier to find events, meetups, and speakers in your area.
This update will provide an event submission flow for leaders as well as allow speaker profile cards to be linked directly in an event, as long as they are registered on the Microsoft Tech Community.
It will also help the community to easily discover events, whether online or in their local area. There will be filters for Speaker, Location, Date and even Products.
Available Filters for Community Events
What events are eligible?
All events submitted to the Community Events section must include at least one Microsoft product in order to be approved, but there is no embargo on discussing competing products at the same event. (Example: A cloud focused event can include Amazon Web Services but must also focus on Azure).
We will continue to make improvements to this space over the coming months, and we welcome your suggestions as we shape this resource for you. If you notice something out of place or doesn’t quite work the way you think it should, please let us know in the Community Ideas board.
What will happen to the existing Events space and content?
The old community events space and speaker card can be found here until July 23rd, 2018 when it will be archived. Unfortunately, if you’ve previously submitted an event, we’ll need you to resubmit the content so that it can be tagged appropriately, otherwise it will not show.
We’re excited to see this corner of our community take shape, and we hope it becomes a useful tool for User Group leaders, speakers, and community members interested in discovering and attending community events.
