Dog Food Conference 2017
Thu, Oct 5, 2017, 8:00 AM – Fri, Oct 6, 2017, 5:00 PM EDT
Dog Food is a technical conference that focuses on Microsoft tools and technologies. “Eating your own dog food” is a phrase that came out of Microsoft in the ’80s. The idea is: If you make products and expect your customers to buy them, they should be good enough for you to use too. Dog Food exists to educate organizations on their IT investments, allow technical professionals to learn from subject matter experts, and raise the community’s knowledge and partnerships.
The conference is sponsored and managed by community IT professionals. Our speakers include Microsoft MVPs, Microsoft Certified Partners, software development and infrastructure professionals, authors, and community leaders. Attendees are a mix of CIOs, managers, software developers, architects, project managers, business analysts, QA engineers, server administrators, and help desk professionals.
Here's what you can expect:
- Breakout Sessions: We feature over 75 sessions. Topics include .NET & Web Development, ALM, Azure, CRM, Infrastructure & DevOps, Mobile, Office 365 & Yammer, Security, SharePoint, Soft Skills, and SQL/BI. We have a great new speakers and familiar faces from throughout the U.S.
- Dog Food After-Hours: On the evening of October 5, we'll have a happy hour featuring tabletop games, pizza, and a chance to relax after a day of learning.
