As in past years, this popular event has attracted noteworthy speakers from across Microsoft’s technical community, including many, many MVPS. The focus this year will be Intelligence and DevOps.
On Wednesday, May 18th, the presentations will feature Analytics on Azure and Cortana Intelligence and explore Microsoft’s Intelligent Cloud and the interconnected services called the Cortana Analytics Suite. Technical experts already building these services will explain what these services are, how they fit together to enable organizations to leverage their data and share their own experiences.
On Thursday, May 19th, the theme shifts to DevOps with the MVPs and community leaders talking about the latest practices to enable organizations to increase efficiency. Throughout the day the main technologies discussed will enable viewers to implement DevOps practices within their own organization. As with day one, technical experts and MVPs already taking advantage of these practices will share their journey and real-world experiences with DevOps.
