Azure Fest 2020

event date

19 Nov 2020


Veenendaal, Utrecht, Netherlands

Azure Fest is a free, single day event for all things Azure; Microsoft’s public cloud computing platform.

We bring together local community speakers and world-class international speakers sharing real word experiences, best practices and the latest Azure developments. 

The first edition of Azure Fest was a great success! It was held in June 2019 and there were over 150 people sharing the same passion for the Microsoft Azure platform. This year we're aiming for a bigger event with parallel sessions, and more speakers and attendees.

We'd like to invite you to submit your best Azure related abstracts for this second edition!
