Microsoft Endpoint Manager Ask Our Experts

You can also join us for an Ask Our Experts series on Tech Community. We’re still working on dates and topics so answer our survey and tell us what you think! How many Ask Our Experts events do you want? Should we focus on a few key topics, or give you everything we can pack into three weeks? We’ll post dates (including calendar invitations) and topics in March, but here’s what you need to know about this opportunity:

  • March 10, 2021 | 8:00 a.m. PT – We’re kicking off Ask Our Experts with the Configuration Manager team, led by David James, Jason Githens, and the program managers and engineers you know and love.

  • March 10-25, 2021 – This year we are combining Ask Our Experts with our text-based Ask Me Anything (AMA) events on Tech Community, giving you a chance to post questions up to 24-hours in advance, and then engage with our experts in a Teams Live Event, both on camera and in text chat. Ask them ANYTHING about their subject areas! We’ll also post wrap-ups and recordings of the Teams Live Events on Tech Community in case you can’t be there live.

Stay tuned!

Microsoft Ignite is an exciting, but brief, moment! I’ll be posting a guide to all our Microsoft Endpoint Manager activities soon, but I invite you to join us for any and all of the activities I’ve outlined above. We also have some great resources on Microsoft Learn to help you keep developing your #MEMPowered skills and manage your devices more efficiently and effectively than ever.
