At every conference, you face the same problem – there isn’t enough time to see it all. Between meetings with clients and vendors, check-ins with the office, and the keynote speeches, it’s important that the few sessions you do get to attend really help you prepare for the future.
With a lot of news about Office 365 coming out from Ignite — Microsoft’s largest event of the year — it’s even more critical that you find yourself in sessions on the most important topics, and at the level of depth that is right for you. To help, we’ve recapped the top takeaways on Office 365 at Ignite, and made a list of must-see sessions at European SharePoint Conference for executives, IT pros, and developers:
