Catch the Microsoft Ignite keynote today at 9 a.m CDT

Microsoft's eventing schedule continues today with Ignite, it's enterprise focused conference being held for the next couple of days in Chicago. Proceedings kick off at 9 a.m local time with a keynote presentation from Microsoft's CEO, Satya Nadella, and as is usually the case you can watch the whole thing unfold live online.

While of less interest to the consumer than last week's Build, it's always worth a listen when the CEO speaks publicly. On the road to Windows 10 we still have much to learn, and you never know what might turn up at events like this.

Hit the link below to follow the stream. 9 a.m. local time translates to 3 p.m. in London, 10 a.m. on the East Coast and 7 a.m. on the west. Check this link to see what that becomes where you are in the world.

  • Please post the UK times too, save us lazy gits having to work it out everytime!
  • 3 p.m. apparently.
  • You know I actually did, right? You obviously didn't read more than the headline.
  • Well he did say he was lazy.
  • LoL
  • He didn't add the proper adjective or is it an adverb now "very".
  • Points!
  • Could you please use some automatic way so it shows the time in the timezone of each reader? I have seen that in some tech website before. I guess it uses the windows timezone and javascript or something like that (I am not a programmer) to calculate it.
  • Seriously?! Guy wrote it the the text. You only read headlines ? I wonder why people study to be journalists these days, must be frustrating.
  • There are people outside UK and US reading the articles on Windows Central.
  • Maybe you did not read my post. Try again.
  • That's not a bad idea. I can usually work it out, but not having to would be optimal
  • Sure, it is not a must have, but would it be handy and elegant.
  • He did
  • wow more excited about this...
  • Can't go even having been invited.
  • When in India ??? Tell me plz time of this event in India..... Jay Maharashtra
  • Just click the link in the post and work it out for yourself based on where you are.
  • 8:30pm. Not very hard. India is +0530GMT and if it's at 3pm in London then it would be at 8:30pm in India.
  • Thanks Richard sir
  • 8pm in india
  • 9:30.
    Not 8.
    12 hrs 30mins.
  • don't forget there are multiple timezones in the US... i think what you worked out here is for pacific time... assuming India is UTC+5:30 then that means that the keynote starts at 7:30pm...
  • I think you are correct.
    Seeing that its going to be at 3pm in London, it would mean that it will be at 8:30 in India (missed it, 1030 in India right now).
  • Yes. Linked at the bottom of this post. Seriously. Did you read a single word?
  • Come on, Richard, it seems like this is your first day in the Internet. Cheers! :-)
  • I feel for you Richard
  •'s enterprise focused conference being held for the next couple of days in Chicago.
  • Flagship! No? Ok. I'll keep waiting.
  • Yeah like they're gonna release a flagship anytime before windows 10...
  • Hopefully, today they finally reveal the name of the next version of Windows Server... 10? 2015? NT 6.5? 365? CloudOS 2.0? Regardless what they call it, I hope they'll be adding Cortana integration to RSAT (Remote Server Administration Tools).
  • For customers, is it worth watching?
  • Probably not for all customers. For enterprise, IT, and other server customers, probably worth keeping in touch with where the platform is going. For end user consumers (phone, tablet, desktop, xbox), you may well be bored to tears. So far, Windows Central is doing a good job of summarizing the highlights. :-)
  • There is already a big crowd lining up and waiting for the doors to the keynote to open.
  • Nice weather in Chicago today !    :-)
  • Im assuming this is taking place at the Hilton. I saw MS adverts on the windows last week, which isn't usual for hotels in Chicago.
  • It's at the McCormick Center by the lake, pretty much every hotel is booked for the event so there would be adverts at many of them.
  • 'I saw MS adverts on the windows last week...' No surprise there then...
  • Im here!
  • its* enterprise focused conferences
  • Shall be some mobile be launching nothing else for windows 10 ...
  • Website seems down for me as well.      EDIT: It just loaded for me!!!!
