    I loved my first DevOps Hackathon experience in Montreal. I’d say it was perhaps one of the best Microsoft learning session I had. Friendly people, sharing ideas and expertise in a very professional manner now that’s what I’m talking about. If there’s a chance to attend a second one in March 2016 in Montreal, then count me in. Mind is a constant tremendous learning machine.

    1. Hey Denys,

      Thanks for the great feedback !

      See you in March 😉

    There seems to be a problem with the authorization form, when i try to download the public sector authorization form it simply opens the same page in a new window

    1. Hello Roland

      You will receive an email from us with the good form.

      Sorry about that, and looking forward to see you at the Hackathon !!!

            Hey Julien,
            Sigh, turns out I won’t be able to clear my days… but this is exactly what I’m dealing with at the moment… Would have been great to chat with the expert. Will have to crunch through the links you’ve shared already. Lot’s of good material. Thanks!
