Microsoft Hosting Windows As A Service AMA on May 4, But Don’t Look on Reddit for It

If you’d like to get into the nitty-gritty about what Windows As a Service is, why it was created, or even to ask how Microsoft expects to improve it in the future, there’s an Ask Me Anything event on the way in May. But, this one is a bit different than those hosted in the past. Instead of a true AMA hosted on Reddit, Microsoft has developed its own AMA space on its own web site.

On May 4, 2017, Microsoft will host the AMA on what it calls the Microsoft Tech Community, Windows AMA space, located here: https://aka.ms/windows-servicing-ama

The AMA will last from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. PT, but you can set a calendar event in your own time zone by going here: https://aka.ms/windowsama/invite

Microsoft describes the event as…

an AMA is a live online event similar to a “YamJam” on Yammer or an “Ask Me Anything” on Reddit.

So, we know what an AMA is and that’s always been associated with Reddit. We also know what a YamJam is and that a good majority of customers detest that nomenclature. It’ll be interesting to see what Microsoft has built around this new model.
