Ready, set, go! The Windows Server team is ready to make sure you are set up for success at Microsoft Ignite 2019. Our experts are busy preparing technical content for breakout sessions, theater sessions and hands-on-workshops. You’ll find the schedule to plan your attendance below. We might even challenge you to a game of bowling or cornhole, if you’re up for it!

That’s right, you’ve guessed it, aside from all the great product and feature updates at the conference, we’re also going to have an awesome customer appreciation party on Tuesday evening, November 5, 2019. Visit the Windows Server booths to find out how to register.

So, what else is going on with Windows Server at Ignite? It’s all about modernization. We want to make sure you’re equipped to modernize your server management with Windows Admin Center, your re-imagined server management option that centralizes and simplifies previous Windows Server management tools. We also want to arm you with the information you need to migrate off of Windows Server 2008 before the end of support on January 14, 2020. Our unbeatable offers like Extended Security Updates and Azure Hybrid Benefit will get you to Azure at no additional charge above the cost of running Azure Virtual Machines. Check out the full list of sessions below!

Don’t miss speakers like Jeff Woolsey, Ned Pyle, Bernardo Caldas, and Cosmos Darwin as they take the stage and dive deep on Windows Server 2019, Windows Admin Center, Windows Server 2008 End of Support, and Azure Stack HCI.
