Microsoft Ignite March 2021 – Best Sessions for Aussie Developers

Well… it’s that time again! Microsoft Ignite is back for its early 2021 edition, kicking off March 2nd. I sat down and had a quick scrub through the sessions to find the ones I think will give the most value to developers here in Australia.

Microsoft Ignite tends to be more of an IT Pro event, but there are still some great nuggets in here that developers won’t want to miss!

There are bunch of sessions that are already full, but you can bookmark them or “add to [your] backpack” so you can return after their run and watch them on demand.

All dates and times listed are in Australian Eastern Daylight Time (AEDT) which is UTC+11.

Feel free to leave a comment if I’ve missed any sessions you think would be valuable for developers to catch!

Our local Australian connection is happening on Wednesday afternoon – make sure to tune in to hear about Quantum computing and also how to next-level your career in tech!
