This year’s summit was one of the best MVP summits I have been to since being a Microsoft MVP! I focused on Azure, Azure Stack, containers, and orchestration platforms. That’s about all I can say about the summit. Everything else is NDA!
On top of all the learning at the summit it was great connecting with other MVP’s and the Microsoft teams. This I can share. Here are some highlights from the summit in pictures:
It was full of cool stickers starting off with one for the 2019 MVP Summit.

I was waiting for these set of stickers the entire summit. Some cool Azure management stickers. Thanks Joseph Chan, Satya Vel and team.
Had a chance to meet the legend Mark Russinovich who also happens to be the CTO of Microsoft Azure!
With MVPs Kevin Greene, Jakob Svendsen, Dieter Wijckmans, and Niklas Akerlund.
And finally dinner with Microsoft MVP’s who work for Avanade and Avanade’s Executive, Global Digital Lead!
Overall the future of Microsoft, cloud, and specifically Azure looks great. It feels good to be the Microsoft space. Everything else is NDA…NDA…NDA
