Windows 10 will be a key focus of Microsoft’s Ignite NZ event, formally known as TechEd NZ, taking place early this September in Auckland.

The full schedule of sessions has been released, which you can see here.

The schedule includes a selection of training opportunities for both IT implementers and developers wanting to learn more about working with Windows 10 and more, according to Microsoft.

Nigel Parker, Microsoft New Zealand director for Developer Experience, says with Windows 10 aiming to be on one billion devices within three years, it will be especially crucial for Kiwi developers to get savvy on the new operating system to help them stay on the leading edge of innovation. 

“In addition to the keynote presentation by Joe Belfiore - one of the leaders of the global development of Windows 10 - there will be significant, deep-dive sessions on offer about everything from deploying, managing and integrating with Windows 10, to developing apps for the Universal Windows Platform,” says Parker.

“We are anticipating these to be some of the most popular sessions at Ignite NZ, so encourage those who haven’t got their tickets yet to do so as soon as possible so not to miss out on this unique opportunity to get wise on Windows 10,” he says.

Parker says those who have already purchased tickets can now go to the website to build the Windows 10 sessions into the schedule tracking tool for their time at Ignite NZ.

The keynote event that will kick off the four-day conference - followed by the opening party - will take place at 4.00pm on September 1 at Vector Arena, in Auckland.

Ignite NZ marks the 20th year of Microsoft NZ hosting the nation’s biggest annual technology event. 

Some of the keynote speakers will be presenting additional sessions at the Ignite NZ conference, being held at SKYCITY convention centre from 2-4 September, where key people will present over 140 sessions to an anticipated audience of 2,500 attendees on a wide range of topics including cloud infrastructure and management, productivity, big data and the Internet of Things, unified communications, mobility and more.
