We have just wrapped up the Johannesburg Microsoft Tech Summit after a successful 2 days meeting new members!  We were overwhelmed with the response, over 1,500 2,000 attendees turned up hungry to learn more about the Microsoft Cloud!  All the breakout rooms were brimming, and there wasn’t an empty seat for the Keynote with Scott Hanselman, Principal Program Manager for Visual Studio and .NET.

We were at the Tech Summits again to sign up new community members.  We learnt a lot about some of the experiences of local businesses here in South Africa, some customers sharing their success stories helping organizations build mobile solutions where internet access is a challenge, and their charitable work helping disadvantaged children and families.

This event was the first time the Tech Community team was equipped with a brand new Surface Studio!  Attendees were excited to get their hands on it and use it to sign up to the community.  We will be taking the Surface Studio with us on the road at future events!

It was to great to see our MVPs out in force, including @Martina Grom, @Tracy van der Schyff, @Veronique Palmer and @Alistair Pugin!  We love having the support of our MVPs and they were enthusiastically signing up new members at the Tech Community booth.
