Global Microsoft 365 (M365) Developer Bootcamps are happening in major cities all over the world from October 1st through November 30, 2020. These are typically free, one day events held in person at your nearest Microsoft office or even a local companies office. The M365 Developer Bootcamps are designed to be an interactive, deep dive event focusing on developing within the M365 platform. Check out the official website to see if you are having one in your area.

Each event is run by a local organizer who typically has a small team of other co-organizers. Typically the organizer is someone you might already know that runs your local M365/O365 User Group. They may be a consultant, an employee for a company, self employed, or maybe even Microsoft employee. The point being is that it’s regular people that run these events and not Microsoft. Microsoft plays a huge rule in organizing the support structure behind the event helping with awareness, the global website, supply the facility, subject matter experts, and securing global sponsors for schwag or most importantly lunch. Microsoft is the backbone behind the events while your local community champions obtain speakers, produce schedules, coordinate food/refreshments, generate agenda or content.

M365 is an ever growing platform of software applications. These events help beginners bridge the gap to entry into building applications using the technologies involved. Each event will have it’s own agenda but would focus on one or many of the follow: Azure, SharePoint, Power Automate, Power Apps, Power BI or MS Teams.

This will be our 4th year running our local bootcamp. The first two years we ran the events in New Jersey and New York. This last year I’ve connect with the team out in Pennsylvania and we’ve all joined forces to run the event in NJ, NY and PA for 2019 and 2020. This year’s event will be 100% virtual and open for any one to join us. Initially the intention was to keep it to 30 people hands on but the registration numbers grew to over 700. This is beyond our expectations but we will still deliver the same content in a deep dive demonstration format with the correct subject matter experts for each of the technologies.

Our NJ, NY, PA bootcamp will be 3 dates each with their own agenda. Register Now
