CLOUD PLATFORM CONFERENCE SESSIONS
Mastering the Move to Modern Management Using ConfigMgr
Want to lessen the risks when migrating to modern PC management? In this session, we will demonstrate how to do so with VMware Workspace ONE through co-management with ConfigMgr for your Windows 10 devices. This session will focus on moving workloads (devices, users, apps, collections) and use cases to modern management so you can reduce time spent on mundane IT tasks and focus on driving value for your business.
WORKSHOP: Migrating to Windows 10 - Notes From the Field
Windows 10 now runs on well over 700 million devices in organizations of all sizes – but managing migrations is still tricky business. You’ll learn to build customized rock-solid deployments using tools like Microsoft Deployment Toolkit and System Center Configuration Manager Current Branch. Expect to walk away with a game plan for your successful Windows 10 migration.
Single Sign-On Showdown: ADFS vs Pass-Through Authentication
Don’t miss this cage match, with ADFS and Azure AD Pass Through Authentication (PTA) going head to head. Both ADFS and PTA are good methods for providing single sign-on to Azure AD (and other services) from domain-joined machines, but which is better? We'll dive deep into topics such as security, reliability, scalability, feasibility and more, with live demos. We will even do a demo migration of ADFS to PTA. Which will win? Come to find out!
Automating Azure with PowerShell - Beyond the Azure PowerShell Module
Azure and PowerShell are a big deal, no question about it. However, are you aware that PowerShell capability in Azure IaaS extends well beyond what can be performed with the Azure PowerShell module? This session will detail the many ways in which one can engage with Azure and Azure virtual machines using PowerShell. This session will detail demonstrate the following features: Azure PowerShell Module, Azure VM DSC extensions, Azure VM Custom Script Extension and Azure Automation.
Disaster Recovery – How to NOT do it
Disasters happen. And while companies spend large sums of money and resources planning for them, many still fail miserably when disaster strikes. This session walks through the ins and outs of an actual disaster response and discusses the lessons learned. We’ll also examine technology from Microsoft Azure that can be used to make sure that this scenario doesn't happen to you. Come to this session for an intimate look at what happens when your company doesn't plan for disaster recovery beyond a disk backup.

I love the depth of both IT Pro and Developer sessions. Since more and more of us are doing both these days, I am very excited at events where I can learn from both sides.
Premier Field Engineer
Speakers from all branches of the IT industry, consultants, engineers, developers, and business owners [are at IT/Dev Connections]. Each with their own experiences waiting to give candid input about the products we all work with that's not affected by the corporate messaging of the vendor.
It's an awesome conference where you get really close to other attendees. It has a user group closeness-feel to the entire conference instead of getting lost in a crowd.
Chief Technical Architect
[IT/Dev Connections is...] the one conference I would gladly pay for myself to attend because it provides you information about how technology is used out in the real-world. Many other conferences provide information about technologies, how they were designed and how they are supposed to work. And there's the catch. Technology isn't always used in the way that it's supposed to, and often doesn't behave the way you expect either. Because this conference is so focused on providing real-world information, every single session will provide you with at least a few tidbits you didn't know because they are badly or not documented at all. THAT is the real value. People talking about the practical use of technology rather than the theory of it.

I love attending because of the breadth of technologies which are covered at this event. If there are sessions on SQL Server, or PowerShell, or Azure that I want to attend, these are all available to me - in 1 single event.
