Microsoft Ignite 2021 – Best Sessions for Aussie Developers

Here we are again – it’s almost time for the annual Microsoft Ignite conference. This edition is virtual again, so it’s a great chance to hear the latest news while being able to sit at home on your sofa!

Microsoft Ignite tends to be more an IT Pro and Microsoft 365 event, but there are still some great developer and Azure nuggets to be found, which I’ve listed below!

All dates and times 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 Thursday afternoon and if you select Australia or New Zealand when registering you should find this session already in your “backpack”.
