I’m a Microsoft Ignite 2018 Featured Speaker

Microsoft Ignite | September 24-28 | Orlando, FL

After delivering sessions at Microsoft Ignite 2017 in Orlando and at the Amsterdam Tech Summit, I was invited as a featured speaker for Microsoft Ignite 2018.

It’s an honor to have my face and profile featuring on the Microsoft Ignite 2018 website and to return to Orlando for another round of awesome theater sessions!


About Microsoft Ignite

Ignite is Microsoft’s yearly event for IT Professionals and developers. At Microsoft Ignite they connect with IT leaders from around the world. They hear from industry thought-leaders on the changing landscape of IT, they find new technology partners and they see how others are transforming businesses. Ignite is a one-of-a-kind experience designed to fuel business, connections, and the future forward.

Microsoft Ignite features over 40 pre-day sessions, including Microsoft Azure, SharePoint, Dynamics 365, Windows, and much more, a keynote by Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella and several meetups with fellow IT Professionals, developers and community leaders.

My sessions at Microsoft Ignite 2018

I’m scheduled for two theater sessions in Expo Theaters 1 and 2 in the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando:

THR2214 – From the trenches: Hardening your Azure Active Directory tenant

Monday September 24 6:25PM-6:45PM, Expo Theater 1

As organizations embrace Azure Active Directory (Azure AD), proper configuration of their tenants becomes more important. Just like tuning on-premises Active Directory Domain Services environments to avoid the tyranny of the default settings, in some situations, Azure AD tenants can benefit from a little tuning, too.

Make sure to get the best tips and tricks in this theater session from my SCCT Identity team, who have seen and done it all in Azure AD.


THR2148 – Experiences with going password-less

Thursday September 27 2:50P-3:10PM, Expo Theater 2

Windows Hello, Windows Hello for Business, their companion device framework and strategic alignment with FIDO offer organizations the ability to go password-less for both interactive logons and application access.

Bring your own FIDO and get the best tips and tricks in this theater session from my team who have pioneered implementing Windows Hello and FIDO 2.0 CTAP for organizations already.


Join me!

Microsoft Ignite has already sold out, but all sessions will be livestreamed.

I hope to see you in Orlando, September 24-28!

    Can you post your slide deck from THR2214?

    • Hi Andrew,

      The video and slidedeck for my Ignite session ‘THR2214 Hardening your Azure AD Tenant’ are both available in this blogpost. The Microsoft Ignite team has been so kind to host the presentation, and I’ve downloaded the (incomplete) recording of the session and posted it on YouTube.
