Australia Microsoft Ignite 2017–special pricing for education customers

Average full article read:


Over 4 days next February, more than 2,500 Australian Professional Developers and IT Pros converge on the Gold Coast to preview new technology, build industry skills and be inspired by innovation at Australia’s Microsoft Ignite 2017. It’s an event for the techies, and people obsessed with what they can do with technology. And it’s the chance to meet other people with a similar inquisitive nature. And at the bottom of this post, you’ll find a Microsoft Ignite 2017 promo code for education customers.

The agenda has some great speakers from Microsoft – from both our local and Seattle HQ teams – as well as experts from within our local and global community – Microsoft MVPs and our business partners, and they will spend four days diving into immense technical detail of most of our products and services. The aim is to help you to understand the newest technologies, and receive extensive training. There are tracks covering all of our key technology services for enterprises and developers:

  • Open Source
  • Cloud and Azure
  • Data and Analytics
  • .NET
  • Productivity and Office 365
  • Datacentre and Infrastructure management
  • Windows

And there are two special tracks this year called “Innovation” and “Hack” – two places to go for new and unusual ideas. The Innovation track will have leading start-ups, industry disruptors and technology innovators sharing how you can be leaders of innovation and develop software solutions that can change the world. And the Hack track, back by popular demand from last year, has non-technical talks for technical people. Last year it included short talks in being more organised, delivering a kickass presentation, visual note taking and the fine art of deliberate practice!

You can search the Ignite website to find your perfect mix of sessions, but let me make two recommendations:

You can find the whole agenda, plus all the other details, at the Microsoft Ignite 2017 Australia website

Now the good news on prices – there is a specific discount for our Education customers of up to $700. The standard price is $2,200, there are Early Bird prices of $1,800, and group prices (bring 19 other colleagues and the individual price plummets to $1,600!). Education customers pay only $1,500 by using the Microsoft Ignite promo code “ORANGE17”. (I honestly believe that $1,500 for four days of technical training of this quality is genuinely a bargain. So now’s the time to download the ‘Convince your boss’ emails from the Ignite website)
