Microsoft Ignite 2020: Must Watch Sessions

It’s time for my yearly list of sessions I recommend watching at Microsoft Ignite 2020 – coming up on Sep 22-24. If you can’t make it, remember these sessions (if it’s like years past) will be made available on-demand for up to a year!

Let’s talk about that “on-demand” concept for a moment. I am a huge fan of keeping my skills up to date, and one of my favorite ways of doing that is watching Ignite sessions. I watch these videos ALL the time – on a treadmill, on the couch on a Saturday morning streaming to the TV, on an airplane, late at night when I can’t sleep – every chance I get.

It’s so important to consume these resources as you’ll learn a ton, and be inspired by art of the possible to go read more about it and lab it up. Take advantage of this! This is your career – in your hands.

Note: This is my personal watch list, with my interest in Security, Compliance, and a little bit of Microsoft Teams.
