Has anyone heard anything on the grapevine about what Microsoft plans to do with Ignite in future?

 

After they postponed/cancelled last year's event, its gone all quiet.

 

I always found it to be a really useful conference, lots of knowledgeable people gathered in one place.

 

I still use stuff I learned at past TechEds on a regular basis.

I don't have any info on the big event for this year... but there is a free one-day summit in AKL and WLG coming up soon. http://aka.ms/azuresummitnz

There is also a developer focussed event in the pipeline, will share more details when I get them.

Those are well and good, but not the same experience.  If Ignite isn't returning that's a huge shame for the NZ tech community.  I'll be heading to ITx this year but that's a bit different.  Hope to hear something announced soon even if it's just indicative.  A lot of budgets are being set at the moment and if there's no indication that Ignite/similar is happening, it'll be a hard sell for people to get money for it if it's not in the budget.

A one day marketing fluff Azure summit isn't really a good replacement for multiple days of access to Micheal Niehaus, Alan Burchill, Orin Thomas, and all the other gurus, PFE's, etc who bring us a wealth of "Real world" advice..
