Global Azure Bootcamp Switzerland 2017–What a day! Here are the numbers…
On April 22nd 2017 we did the global Azure Bootcamp Switzerland 2017 in Wallisellen at the Microsoft Switzerland offices. What a day!
Take a look at my blog post where I introduced the event for details:

Now the event is over and we, as the organizers from the Azure Zurich User Group (http://azurezurichusergroup.ch), are really happy with the result!
Let me share some numbers:
Over 80 people interested in Azure found their way to the bootcamp despite the fact that is was
during the Swiss holiday season
and beautiful weather!
We enjoyed 1 full day of Azure goodness
2 tracks of
13 sessions held by
12 speakers including
1 regional director
2 Microsoft employees
5 Microsoft MVPs
Delivering 585 minutes, which is almost 10 hours of sessions!
We were a part of 254 locations around the globe who did the bootcamp on the exact same day (https://global.azurebootcamp.net/):
We ate over 100 sandwiches
100 bags of chips
40 slices of cream cake
140 bottles of soft drinks
and a couple of beers…
I would like to thank all the great speakers and of course our sponsors. Without you guys, there could not be a Global Azure Bootcamp Switzerland!
As people tend to say, after the Global Azure Bootcamp is before the Global Azure Bootcamp. With the bootcamp being such a success, we already start our planning for next year!
