The good times keep on rolling.

Day two here in Chicago was as great opportunity to really explore the breadth of Microsoft Azure and Office 365. I attended some fantastic sessions where the next generation of innovation was right in front of us.

In seeing the new UI of products like Excel and the helpful function releases, it is easy to understand how Microsoft is really endeavouring to improve everyones productivity.

The cafeteria here is big… well enormous. It is fantastic to see such a large array of companies devoted to helping individuals. Lunch groups were organised by countries – which is handy because my Icelandic isn’t that great!

We will be grouped by industry and product at different occasions, so it is great opportunity to speak to like minded people.

Today I had the chance to visit the Expo Hall, and I was happy to bump onto our friends from Barracuda and Brainstorm. In addition to the genius new tools, one can never have too many free pens!

The day was capped off with a great Azure partner evening at ‘Tavern in the Park’. Overall it has been a fantastic experience with many more highlights to come.
