Azure Saturday 2017 – final information

Hey folks,

it’s only a few hours to go until we kick off Azure Saturday 2017 with more than 300 attendees at Microsoft’s German headquarter in Munich. I’m writing this blog post to give you some final information about the event.

Breakfast and breaks

We will offer a light breakfast from 8:00 to 9:00 am. Sharp at 9:00 am we will start with   our Welcome followed by Donovan Brown’s keynote about DevOps. Between all sessions there will be 20 minutes breaks so there will be enough time for changing rooms, networking, having drinks and so on. Between 12:30 and 2:00 pm we will have lunch at the restaurant (free!) and the event closes with the Azure Pint and raffle between 5:30 and 7:00 pm.

Arrival & Parking

For those of you who arrive by car there is a public parking about 300 meters away from Microsoft’s headquarter. Those of you who have mobility constraints are allowed to use Microsoft’s parking garage within the building. In that case please contact security in order to be allowed to enter.

Address: Walter-Gropius-Straße 5, 80807 München

Attendees who are not checked in will have to pay the no-show fee you have accepted while booking your free ticket. The no-show money will be donated after the event.


We are so excited and can’t wait to have you all around and to spend an awesome day together at Microsoft in Munich. One last demand: if you have any questions or concerns please don’t hesitate to inform us. Max, Ben and I will be around all the day and you will recognize us wearing white Azure Saturday shirts.

In the name of the orga team: save travels and see you all tomorrow,

0 to DevOps – See the #BlackShirt live

After the confirmation that Donovan Brown is going to keynote on Azure Saturday now the content of his keynote has been confirmed, too:

DevOps is about people, process and products. Getting it all right requires effort but the benefits to your organization and customers can be huge. In this demo-heavy session, Donovan Brown will show you how to go from “zero to DevOps” like a pro. Starting from just a blank desktop, he will create a new team project and a complete pipeline. He will also deploy an ASP.NET MVC application into Azure all live and hands on.

Make sure to grab your early-bird ticket now and see the #BlackShirt live!

Donovan Brown as Keynote Speaker!

We are happy and proud to announce that Donovan Brown (Senior DevOps Program Manager Microsoft) will present the keynote at our very first Azure Saturday.

 Donovan Brown

Meet The Man in the Black Shirt. Donovan Brown is a Senior DevOps Program Manager on Microsoft’s US Developer Division team. Why is DevOps one of the hottest topics? Because it hurts the most.

Developer Tools are his thing. Donovan has travelled the globe helping companies in the U.S., Canada, India, Germany, and the UK develop solutions using agile practices, Visual Studio, and Team Foundation Server in industries as broad as Communications, Health Care, Energy, and Financial Services. What else keeps the wheels spinning on The Man in The Black Shirt? Donovan’s also an avid programmer, often finding ways to integrate software into his other hobbies and activities, one of which is Professional Air Hockey where he has ranked as high as 11 in the world. https://channel9.msdn.com/Events/Speakers/donovan-brown
