I’m going to Microsoft Ignite!
In early May I’ll be traveling to Chicago for a week, and am extremely excited that my request to attend was approved by my company.
I have never been to a large conference like this, although I have attended a smaller single-vendor conference in 2013. At this point I don’t really know what to expect, but I’m most looking forward to the following areas:
- Networking and discussions with companies and IT experts who see the same struggles I do
- Using Hyper-V in real world scenarios
- Server 2012 R2 features like DirectAccess and Remote Desktop Services
Having never been to Chicago, and not knowing what to look for in accommodations I took a stab in the dark and will be staying at the “Hotel Rush”.
I hope that my attendance this year proves very valuable to my company, so that justification in 2016 is stronger; with Windows 10 and Server vNext coming in late 2015 I anticipate Ignite 2016 to be even more exciting.
