This morning we released the complete list of sessions offered at Microsoft Ignite, including the full list of Exchange sessions. Ignite is the premier event for the Exchange community, bringing together the people who build Exchange and those who work with it every day. If you are one of the many Microsoft Exchange Conference (MEC) alumni, Ignite is the evolution of MEC. Be there as we talk about what’s coming next in Exchange, announce new Office 365 innovations and share our overall technology vision and strategy.

Deep technical content

At Ignite, we’ll have over 65 breakout sessions dedicated to Exchange on-premises and online, 9 hands-on-labs (HOLs) and 2 pre-day offerings for Exchange IT Pros – many of these offerings presented for the first time at Ignite. You will hear from Exchange engineering, deployment and support teams, as well as independent MVP experts. Ignite offers more than just Exchange content, providing easy access to a broad set of content across Microsoft technologies. You will find over 550 sessions ready for selection at Ignite. So go broad and deep with leading experts from Microsoft and the community on topics ranging from product overview, best practices, how-to, deep-dives, vision and roadmap – tailored by role, level, and specific interests. Here as few sessions you will find on the agenda for Ignite.

Unrivaled community & networking opportunities

If you’ve been to MEC in the past, you know the real magic happens with the connections you make on site – impromptu geek-out whiteboard sessions, ad-hoc syncs and afterhours at the big and small parties. We are building a complete Ignite experience to deliver opportunities to network at Ignite as Exchange MVP Jason Sherry shared with us early in the Ignite planning process.

"The key thing for me is the networking and open dialog that can easily be had with anyone there. Easy access to my peers and product group. We powwow and can then walk to sessions together. Interacting with your peers and socializing is the biggest benefit." – Jason Sherry, Exchange MVP & MEC Alumni, @JasonSherry

We’re hosting six large theaters in the spacious expo hall at the event to serve as community zones – these provide a platform for community leaders to share their knowledge and experience with attendees as well as comfortable meeting places for the spontaneous conversations that crop up. The content in these theaters is 100% community-driven; you can expect community-run panel discussions, short fire-starter sessions in which you share an idea with the community and get immediate feedback and birds of a feather session in which people with similar interests gather for discussion, and maybe some of that ‘controlled chaos with clarity’ this community is known for.

Mealtimes and after hours provide a whole new slew of opportunities to network and make connections, from scheduled events including the Welcome Reception Monday night and Attendee Party Thursday night to more informal gatherings including meal-time mashups with seating by topic or geography so every meal at the conference becomes a chance to meet someone with similar interests.
