Over 1,500 people attended the 2013 MVP Virtual Conference which focused on providing solutions to real world problems utilizing Microsoft technologies and products. The three-day virtual conference boasted 49 breakout sessions and over 55 hours of recorded technical content all of which was provided free of charge to attendees.
MVPs were crucial to the design and execution of the conference from the beginning. Upon identifying a need in the community for this type of event, MVPs in Brazil rallied together to design and deliver a conference that contained current and relevant content for consumer and technical attendees.
“It was a great opportunity for us to offer up to date technical content to the participants, and by engaging in a roundtable session, offer the opportunity to exchange experience about real world scenarios and answer participants’ questions,” said System Center Cloud and Database Management MVP Marcelo Sincic
The MVP Virtual Conference not only delivered presentations highlighting products and technologies, it also focused on designing sessions with real world scenarios. Nine different topics were chosen and each session organized and delivered to provide solutions for problems facing today’s consumer and technology experts. The nine topics were:
- Consumerization of IT
- Application Lifecycle Management
- Enterprise Security
- Software and Application Development
- Interoperability in Development and Infrastructure
- BI, Big Data and Database Management
- Cloud Computing
- Productivity, Collaboration and Unified Communication
One ALM breakout session was recorded live at Microsoft Brazil HQ and has been published by the largest, independent Windows websites in Brazil.
“I can only thank Microsoft and all MVPs who supported this event. I was very happy to know the online format of the event was a success. May this be the first of many and see you at the MVP Virtual Conference 2014,” said Visual C# MVP Rogério Moraes.
As a commitment to keeping high-level content alive, the event was fully recorded and is currently being edited. It will be published in an official and open Microsoft channel for further free distribution.
