Azure Black Belt Networking and Security Presents Microsoft Networking Academy - Fall 2017

9월 12, 2017에 게시됨

Global Black Belt - Azure Networking, Microsoft Azure

Welcome to this new season of our networking, and now security, webinar series! We’re hoping that this show will be helpful in delivering valuable content for anyone who’s looking at starting to consume information about the Azure cloud, or developing their cloud connectivity deeper with Azure.

A Microsoft Network Academy (#MNA) session is taking place every 4 weeks, on Fridays, this fall. It is open to customers, partners and Microsoft employees who want to learn more about Azure Networking, including ExpressRoute, Virtual Networking, and security — such as how to plan and design their connectivity to the Microsoft cloud, as well as the various security elements surrounding Azure.

MNA will typically be delivered in two formats, depending on the episodes, partner-focused sessions, and deep dive sessions. 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:

Partner-focused 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 are kicking off this new season on Friday, September 22nd, 2017.
