    how i can watch it offline ? or download the slides or the clip ?
    in every MS event ( HCT , OPK , ....etc ) we always get the slides PPT and other materials !!

    All of these things (download links, PPTX's, etc.) are coming online. Unlike other events, we're doing this within a very short timeframe (we've been hitting under 24 hours) for each session instead of the typical 4-6 weeks after the event. Please bear with us - working as quickly as we can.

    I was just worry no one was confirming the slides will be available for us, except the online videos

    Now I see more PPTX and other resources, thanks again for hard working ...

    Sorry for a "frontal" approach but I simply must comment :

    A :: loose that shirt for a god's sake !

    B:: AZURE can NOT be pronounced AJURE (J as in J'taime) it MUST be:
    AZZURE (ZZ as in aZZuro, aka "blue in italian)

    Ok, I feel better now, thanks ...
