Microsoft TechDays is both a deep-dive, technical event and a conference where you can explore the strategic overview of the ever-changing technical landscape. TechDays offers technology innovation sessions and provides leadership insights for both your business and personal digitalization needs.
This is a two-day conference plus a pre-conference day for developers, IT Pros and IT managers allowing them to be inspired, to expand and deepen their knowledge in Microsoft’s products and solutions. A place to meet new friends and business partners.
Today we generate more data than ever before. How can we use that data in more creative ways? How can we infuse it into the right context and turn it into knowledge, into intelligence? What does it take to infuse Intelligence into the Apps and Services all of us build and given that we gain Intelligence, what more skills do we have to infuse to make sure we give our Apps and Services the needed social skills?
Tomorrow is about Infusing Intelligence in everything. Everything we all together deliver! We call it the journey to +AI. This is one of the areas we will discuss at TechDays!
You are welcome to submit session proposals on the theme Infusing Intelligence! But in addition, TechDays will of course offer the delegates lots of topics, and below is a list which we hope will be useful to you when deciding what your session proposals should focus on:
Development*, Cloud/Hybrid Infrastructure, Collaboration, Compliance, Deployment, Digitalization Transformation, Identity, Insights & Analytics, Management, Mobility, Operations, Productivity, Security and Trust.
*Technologies and other topics we are looking for (but in no way excluding other technologies): Everything in Azure, DevOps practices and tools, UWP, Xamarin, Bots and other client development platforms, User experience design, Architecture, DDD, Microservices, Machine Learning, Cognitive Services, Big Data, Asp.Net and .NET Core, Development tools and languages, Office365, Microsoft Graph, Dynamics 365 and PowerBI, Software Craftmanship and methodologies, Open Source.
• Think attention grabbing and eye-catching when you create your session title and abstract.
• Your session proposal should be designed to educate and inspire. The Microsoft TechDays attendees want to hear how YOU would do it in the real-world. Attendees will learn from you and take their insights further to become thought leaders with vision in their business.

A growing number of delegates at Microsoft TechDays are English speaking. Therefore, we encourage our speakers to present in English. It may allow you to attract more participants at your session and we can more easily spread the recorded material afterwards. However, it is your decision to choose presentation language. Very important: if your session will be presented in Swedish, then the abstract needs to be written in Swedish.
