Microsoft Ignite 2022 – Best Sessions for Australian and New Zealand Developers

It seems like only yesterday it was the last Microsoft Ignite, but it has been 11 months since we last connected!

For the first time in a couple of years, there is an in-person event for Ignite, though for our list here I’m only listing sessions you can attend from the comfort of your home. If you’re headed to the in-person event… lucky you!

There are quite a few clashing sessions in my list, but I think you’ll pick the most interesting session for you for each timeslot. If you can’t make a session for the initial showing, most (if not all) are recorded for later watching.

The “Ask the Expert” sessions are great because you can ask any questions you have from the original session, and the “Learn Live” sessions are a fantastic way to go deep on one topic for an hour.

All dates and times in my session list 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! If you get all the way to the bottom of this post you’ll find a cool surprise as well!

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”.
