Microsoft Networking Academy with the Azure Black Belt Team – Winter 2017!

Global Black Belt - Azure Networking, Microsoft Azure

Welcome to our new networking webinar series! We’ve changed the name of our bi-weekly talk to better reflect what we want to convey to you, our customers and partners! And this comes with a new name: Microsoft Networking Academy !

The Microsoft Network Academy session is taking place every other Friday this winter and spring. It is open to all customers and partners to learn more about Azure Networking, including ExpressRoute and Virtual Networking, and how to plan and design their connectivity to the Microsoft Cloud.

As a team, we’ve decided to create two formats for our Microsoft Networking Academy series: the introductory sessions, and deep dive sessions, generally presented in alternance.

In both formats, there will be an open Q&A session at the end where customers can ask the experts. Content and partner speakers will vary for each session, but the general agenda is as follows:

Introductory sessions

  • Azure Networking fundamentals (10 minutes)
  • Deep dive topic of the week (15-20 minutes)
  • Partner spotlight of the week (15-20 minutes)
  • Q&A

Deep dive sessions

  • Introduction (5 minutes)
  • Deep dive topic of the week (35-45 minutes)
  • Q&A (10 minutes)

We will post the agenda in advance on this blog, and to our interested viewers, you can join a distribution list by sending an email to gbb-anf@microsoft.com with the subject-line “Join Microsoft Networking Academy List”. We will email you a reminder and the agenda in advance for the upcoming sessions.

We kicked off this new Academy Series on Friday, February 17th, 2017.

Join the Skype Meeting and make sure you don’t miss out on future sessions by adding this the series to your Outlook calendar. You can also download ICS (same agenda entry for both introductory and deep dive sessions).
