While there are many opportunities for webcasts and recorded videos available from Microsoft (the Partner Technical Services posts a number of our own up at the Partner Learning Center as well as to our Microsoft Partner Support YouTube Channel. That said, in-person events are a great way to meet with product experts from Microsoft, ask questions, and network with peers across the industry.
Ignite Summits are unique and special events for IT Pros and Developers delivered by the Office team. We share our knowledge and experience deploying and managing the new Office products and services and hear from you on what you love and what you’d like to see. Ignite content is designed and delivered by product experts from across Microsoft (Engineers, Technical Writers, Product Managers & Consultants). In October and November, we will be hosting the following Ignite events:
- Hong Kong – October 8-10
- Prague – October 22-24
- Washington DC – November 5-7, 2013
- Dubai – November 19-21, 2013

These 3 day events give you the opportunity to meet, discuss with Microsoft’s product experts a wide variety of topics from Office, Office 365, SharePoint, Exchange, Project, Yammer and developer content – over 70 sessions covered. Specifically, for Office 365, we will be discussing how to deliver the capabilities that users demand while staying in control of your environment. Adopting Office 365 requires IT Pros to adapt their traditional client-server skills for the cloud computing era. We will also talk about how new features come to Office 365 first, learn about the new tools and processes to migrate on premises environments to Office 365, and prepare for the new operational role of IT.
