Microsoft IT Camp - 3/19, Mountain View, CA

IT Camps are semi-structured, no-fluff events exclusively designed to serve IT professionals.  They are a free, in-person learning event for anyone seeking professional development as it applies to IT Professionals.  The agenda is intended to deliver a technical overview and hands-on experience that is less formal or structured than traditional instructor-led training.

Participants will have a chance to perform hands on activities / exercises individually or as a team.  At the end of the day, we encourage everyone to share their thoughts and experiences with the rest of the group.  Come prepared to have fun, be excited, and interact in a group.
