Microsoft Ignite Rocks! Tuesday, September 27 | 9:00 PM–12:00 AM | The Tabernacle

Microsoft Tech Community Lounge
The Microsoft Tech Community Lounge in Hall C is your place to relax, connect, and share. (And there's plenty of swag, too!) The team behind the Microsoft Tech Community will be there to help you sign up for the community or update your profile picture, and community leaders will be there to share their experiences at the Spotlight talks. It's the perfect meeting point to connect with others you have met on the Microsoft Tech Community.
An engaging way to connect while learning something new. Collaborate with experts and get experience with Surface Hub at the Hubtalks. Led by Microsoft MVPs, each Hubtalk presents different challenges and ideas that get the community talking. Take a look at the Hubtalks schedule on MyIgnite.
