Microsoft Ignite – Monday

Alright, we have landed in Atlanta on Saturday and made the Airbnb house our home. We used our first two days to enjoy the house, the city and a first party on Sunday evening organized by the SPC Party Patrol, which was fun!

On Monday the Ignite conference started with the keynote, introduced by Julia White, she is the general manager of product marketing for Office and took care of the first part of the keynote. After that she handed over to Scott Guthrie who guided the audience through the rest of the keynote. There is not much to say about the content of this first keynote unfortunately. There was not much news to it.

I had the chance to visit a nice session about the new admin portal of Office 365, it has been completely restyled and uses smart search functionality to help you as an admin to do your job in a quick and proper way.

At the end of day 1 the second keynote was presented by Satya Nadella which was awesome. It had great vision about using AI to make life and work more productive and easy for everyone. To empower every person to achieve more!

They presented an amazing demo by showing what a FPGA processing power unit could do when it utilizes the full spectrum of all azure resources. It could translate all UK wiki pages to Spanish within a 10th of a second. Wauw!


It was a nice conference day with an inspiring keynote to close it off.

We took a Uber taxi to our house and watched the first debat between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, which was entertaining! Oh, and Uber is great!

I am looking forward to tomorrow, with hopefully a few more in depth sessions. Cheers.
