We are excited to host you all at this year’s Ignite conference. The Azure Stack team has put together a list of sessions along with a pre-day event to ensure that you will enhance your skills on Microsoft’s hybrid cloud solution and get the most out of this year’s conference.

We have an agenda that is tailored for developers who use Azure Stack to develop innovative hybrid solutions using services on Azure Stack and Azure, as well as operators who are responsible for the operations, security, and resiliency of Azure Stack itself. Whether you’re a developer or an IT operator, there’s something for you.

To fully benefit from our sessions we recommended you attend our two overview talks, “Intelligent Edge with Azure Stack” and “Azure Stack Overview and Roadmap”. If you’re looking to learn how to operate Azure Stack, we recommend you attend “The Guide to Becoming an Azure Stack Operator” to learn what it takes to get the most of your investment. If you’re just “Getting started with Microsoft Azure Stack as a developer”, we’ve created a path for you as well. See the learning map below:
