Friday was the last day for the first annual Microsoft Ignite conference for enterprise and IT professionals. However, the company is already making plans for the second annual event, which will once again be held in Chicago. The dates for the conference will be May 9-13, 2016.
Microsoft Ignite was designed to be a merger of many of the company's previous conferences such as its TechEd, SharePoint, Project, Lync and Exchange events. About 23,000 people attended the first Ignite conference this week, but WindowsTPro reports there were more than a few issues at the event, ranging from transportation problems to and from the downtown convention center to some of the sessions not being as detailed as they were promised in their descriptions.
However, this was the first year for Ignite and it stands to reason there would be some glitches at this rather massive event. It's more than possible the company will work out the kinks and have a better conference when Microsoft Ignite happens a year from now.
