There was plenty of ground covered including the first look at Windows 10 S, an exploration of Microsoft Teams for Education, exciting developments with the Minecraft: Education Edition Code Builder, partner news on 3D and mixed reality devices and of course the unveiling of our own brand new hardware in the Surface Laptop.
