We are excited to announce that our annual Visual Studio Partner Summit 2017 event will be held at the Microsoft Conference Center in Redmond, Washington on September 20-22, 2017.
The Visual Studio Partner Team has been hard at work preparing a more agile and interconnected way for us to engage with our partners and we are excited to share our thoughts, plans, and proposed opportunities with you at the 2017 Visual Studio Partner Summit. Come 'under the hood' of our product and sales strategies to keep up with the ever-quickening pace of technology.
The Visual Studio product teams, from .NET, to mobile, to all the tools that support a DevOps environment, will be sharing their roadmaps and future opportunities for partners. Dive deeper with these teams through our 'Summit Labs'—a series of workshops that explore the newest features in 15.3 or the APIs behind Visual Studio Mobile Center. Want to go even deeper? Sign up for a 1:1 session on Day 3 and let us know what technical or marketing questions are top-of-mind for you!
Did you say DevOps? The adoption of modern DevOps practices is transforming what is possible in the scale and complexity of modern application development, and your tools provide a critical ecosystem for success. Brian Harry, CVP of Visual Studio Team Services, will be kicking off the Summit and will be joined by many of the lead engineers from the Visual Studio Team Services team. Come get to know Mario Rodriguez, Joe Bourne, and the whole extensibility team and learn how we can better go-to-market together in the DevOps space. You will also have the opportunity to demo your tools to an MVP community of DevOps consultants from around the world. Sign up to exhibit at the Day 1 Technology Showcase or to host one of our Day 3 DevOps Solution Roundtables.
We are also featuring a dedicated marketing track called "Beyond the Benefits", which will drill down on the ways we co-market with our partners and the various communities we are trying to reach. This workshop-style track will introduce you to the marketing leaders behind our social and virtual media campaigns, our marketing strategy, etc. Learn more about our FY18 goals and marketing best practices and share your marketing journey with us.
note A detailed agenda regarding Summit session abstracts, speakers, locations will be published no-later-than July 20th.
