(Dates are currently for London events, but we always welcome approaches for other venues)
Working with or learning about Microsoft Cloud Technologies? Fancy networking with peers and learning about the latest developments and real-life challenges? You’re in good company!
We would love it if you presented a session. If you are an aspiring speaker or you have done it many times before we would love you to speak. Real-world knowledge is valued by all attendees. If you’ve never spoken at a user group before we are happy to coach you.
We love sessions aimed at IT professionals of any level that are drawn from real-world experience. It's all about sharing knowledge so whether you've implemented it for your employer, or rolled it out to your customers - we want to hear it from the coal face.
Or maybe you've a passion for the latest and greatest, and you've been setting something cutting edge up in your lab environment or Microsoft dev tenant? Been researching the specific gotchas before deploying and want to share what you've learnt? We would love to hear it.
We run the events as an in-person hybrid event, but ask you to present in-person. We've all spent most of our time in front of Teams meetings all day, so a watch party isn't the goal - but for attendees who can't make it, we stream direct from Teams, and get involved in the comments.
Our events had a little break due to restrictions on in-person events but we returned late 2021! We typically run events every month in either:
You can choose where you'd prefer to join us to present your session.
Because we're going hybrid and split the video feed + content, please use our presentation deck where you can, and share it with us just before you present so we can load it up from the broadcast laptop. You can still, of course, present demos from your own PC too.
If you haven't spoken before, we are happy to coach you and even present with you if it helps. We were first-time speakers too once!
We're a free community event and a registered CIC and we don't pay organizer or speaker expenses for travel or accommodation. We recommend in the first instance, asking your employer to pay for your expenses as it typically is classed as business travel - and we don't mind you saying who you work for either. If that's not possible for you, and you need travel & accommodation, let us know. We may be able to fund your T&A.
We want you to know that we subscribe to this diversity charter. This applies to us, attendees, speakers and we operate a zero-tolerance policy and will be pro-active in enforcing it.
