Just a little late on the announcement (expected at the end of September), but Microsoft has now unveiled the name of its multi-conference replacement.
Seems to be my ‘year of conferences’ this year. Since moving to Australia in March 2014 I didn’t have a quiet and laid back month; and it won’t change in the next few months.
