Take a look at my blog post where I introduced the event for details:
http://www.manuelmeyer.net/2017/04/starting-the-countdown-to-the-global-azure-bootcamp-switzerland-2017/

and check out the event website:

Now the event is over and we, as the organizers from the Azure Zurich User Group (http://azurezurichusergroup.ch), are really happy with the result!

Let me share some numbers:

Over 80 people interested in Azure found their way to the bootcamp despite the fact that is was
a Saturday
during the Swiss holiday season
and beautiful weather!

We enjoyed 1 full day of Azure goodness
2 tracks of
13 sessions held by
12 speakers including
1 regional director
2 Microsoft employees
5 Microsoft MVPs
Delivering 585 minutes, which is almost 10 hours of sessions!

We were a part of 254 locations around the globe who did the bootcamp on the exact same day (https://global.azurebootcamp.net/):

We ate over 100 sandwiches
106 cookies
100 bags of chips

60 cupcakes
40 slices of cream cake
140 bottles of soft drinks
and a couple of beers…  Smile with tongue out

 

I would like to thank all the great speakers and of course our sponsors. Without you guys, there could not be a Global Azure Bootcamp Switzerland!

As people tend to say, after the Global Azure Bootcamp is before the Global Azure Bootcamp. With the bootcamp being such a success, we already start our planning for next year!
