Identity-related sessions at Microsoft Ignite 2019 in Orlando

Microsoft Ignite 2019

Microsoft Ignite 2019 North America in Orlando is only two weeks away and many of us have begun filling their session builder with interesting sessions, corresponding to their interests and knowledge.

I decided to compile a list of the Active Directory, Azure Active Directory and Enterprise Mobility + Security (EM+S) related sessions at Ignite 2019. I’ve compiled the list below, divided per Ignite session type and arranged by date, since Ignite offers 75-minute breakout sessions, 45-minute breakout sessions and 20-minute theater sessions over five days.

All below sessions are streamed live from Ignite. These can be viewed using a free Microsoft Tech Community account, linked to an Office 365 or Microsoft Account.

When you’re not attending Microsoft Ignite, this year, use the above list of Identity-related sessions to convince your manager next year, or watch the live streams (available for all of the above sessions) or recordings (available after roughly 24 hours of the end of the session).

When you are attending Ignite and are into identity, please use the above list to add some identity flavor to your session builder: especially the sessions I’ve denoted with a star are worth your time.
