UK IT Camps are back.

After our Summer break the UK IT Pro team are back with a bang.

Next week we are running our first two IT Camps

3rd November Manchester City Centre

4th November Leeds City Centre

These two camps focus on Microsoft Azure but we have a whole list of exciting things coming up between now and May next year.

So first, what is an IT Camp?

An IT Camp is a free hands-on training experience hosted by our IT Evangelists. These camps run between 0900 and 1700 and are at least 60% hands-on labs.

To take part you need to bring with you a device that can connect to the internet and run a modern browser. It does help if you have local admin privileges but that is not always necessary.

Now, what is the agenda for these camps?

The days starts with coffee and refreshments and launches fairly fast into the content, followed by a series of hands on labs to demonstrate and test the technologies being taught.

The aim is to give you a better idea of the capabilities of the specific technologies involved.

What is the content?

Between now and Christmas we are covering two main topics

Microsoft Azure and Windows 10.
