Throwback to #MSIgnite: Five Highlights from 2015

#MSIgnite

Last year, the Quest team arrived in Chicago for Microsoft Ignite. While most folks on my team attended a few Microsoft events in the past, I did not know what to expect. Once I arrived to the event, I quickly submitted to the excitement of it all.

In honor of this year’s upcoming event in Atlanta, I decided to recap my top five highlights from Microsoft Ignite 2015.

1. Opening Keynote

Watching Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft Corporation, speak about his vision and direction for Microsoft left me speechless. I can't wait to see him speak again this year.

2. Expo Hours

The first few days on the expo floor were truly exciting. The conference hall buzzed with excitement as attendees enjoyed product demos, theater sessions, and collected their swag. You can always use a good conference t-shirt!

3. #Maythe4thBeWithYou

Microsoft Ignite happened to roll around "Star Wars Day." To celebrate, we gave away lightsabers at the booth. That's right, lightsabers. You can expect some great swag/freebies again this year, too!

4. Sessions

So many sessions! At the end of the day, the knowledge gained is key. 

 

5. Customer Appreciation Cruise

Meeting our awesome customers definitely made the whole trip worthwhile. We celebrated some of our customers on a private cruise.
