Microsoft Ignite: What to Expect

Microsoft Ignite is an annual conference for developers and IT professionals hosted by Microsoft.  It offers opportunities to meet Microsoft experts, MVPs and community members. With over 25,000 attendees, 1000+ sessions, and 200+ hands-on experiences, Microsoft Ignite is sure to have something for everyone. Before we dive into what you can expect once you get there, let’s go through a few logistics.

When & Where?

Microsoft Ignite takes place November 4-8, 2019 at Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, FL. Known for its temperate climate year-round, you can expect highs in the high 70s and lows in the high 50s℉ (that’s 15-25℃) and November is not a particularly rainy month, so you should be able to enjoy some of that famed Florida sunshine while getting up to speed on the latest from Microsoft.

The conference is sold out, but Microsoft has started a waitlist if you’d like to be notified of any openings. And barring that, you can create your own agenda and attend from the comfort of your home or office via the online experience which will provide access to live streams, interactive content, discussions, and on-demand videos.

What You Can Expect

New this year, Microsoft is introducing Learning Paths which are a series of connected learning modules that include sessions, hands-on experiences, technical workshops and certifications. The cool thing about these learning paths is that they are designed to build upon what you’ve learned to give you a complete set of skills to reach your goal.

For instance, you could do a complete track around getting the most out of meetings with Microsoft Teams or learn about collaboration, communication, and engagement in the intelligent workplace.

There really are too many options to list here, so we’ll just hit on the important things…like the Attendee Celebration taking place Thursday, November 7 at 7:30 PM at Universal Studios Florida and Universal’s Islands of Adventure. You’ll get a chance to explore the latest rides and attractions including Hagrid’s Magical Creatures Motorbike Adventure™ in The Wizarding World of Harry Potter™ – Hogsmeade™.
