I headed off to Atlanta, GA this year for another serving of Microsoft Ignite. Was not planning on it, however, our Marketing team, had another plan in mind. They produced a ticket for me and placed me on schedule to work the booth!
As someone who grew up around SharePoint (In fact my first ever conference I attended was a SharePoint conference in Bellevue, WA. @Bill Baer talks about it here https://blogs.technet.microsoft.com/wbaer/2013/09/19/sharepoint-conferences-looking-back/), I find Ignite not attractive.
I am thankful however and grateful to my employer, CDW, the Marketing team, and my colleagues who are always there to help me out and keep my company.
Also, thanks for #MNSPUG for inviting me over to share my learnings and experiences from #MSIgnite. Our MN resident MCM, Brian Caauwe took charge of our gathering last Wednesday and got us all on the right track. It was a lot of fun!
Finally, here is my www.sway.com story about Microsoft Ignite 2016. Enjoy!
