  • Microsoft cancels the MVP summit

    I’m sure many of you are breathing a sigh of relief. The COVID-19 situation doesn’t look good, especially in the Seattle area, and MS has officially cancelled the Summit. If you’re registered, you should’ve received an email.

    In light of recent developments globally and the growing concerns around the spread of the COVID-19 virus, Microsoft has made the decision that this year’s MVP/ Regional Director Summit will be an online-only / virtual event. It will be scheduled for the same week (Mar 16-20).

    Our entire team is working hard to plan and prepare an alternate experience that still provides the exclusive in-depth technical sessions in an online-only format and be inclusive to our globally distributed community.

    Good decision.

    P.S. I stopped going to conferences about 25 years ago. Always wondered why the computer industry, of all groups, would have physical get-togethers.
