Agenda: Conference 2015 agenda

We are doing the interactive labs once again on Wednesday, since some attendees leave early - Wednesday afternoon will feature a choice between two interactive hands-on labs, see agenda for details.

As with prior events, this is a technical conference with about half of the content provided by Microsoft speakers and half by peer speakers. We focus a lot of attention on content and presenters and strive to bring together excellent content from both Microsoft and peers. A large part of the motivation for holding the event on the Microsoft campus is greater access to high level Microsoft presenters.

​​Some of the material that will be presented at the conference by Microsoft speakers will be protected by a non-disclosure agreement. You will be asked to complete an NDA form before the conference begins on Monday.

"Unofficial Conference T-Shirt":

We have an unofficial T-shirt design posted on teespring. If you are interested, you can reserve one at the teespring site. Multiple colors/sizes available. Teespring "Windows HiEd 2015"
