It’s been pretty quiet here on the blog the last few months and I’m sorry for that. I am in some big customer projects and am in full planning of some community events, like Global Azure at Azure Bonn and the Cloud Identity Summit, this was the reason of the silence in this blog. But I vow to mend my ways and will soon publish some blog articles again, which I am already working on. Today we start first with light fare and my upcoming community events. I hope to see you at one of the many events and get in touch with you.

Before I list the events where I will deliver a session I will shortly inform you, that I created a page where all upcoming Azure and Microsoft 365 community conferences are listed. Take a look there to find all events, that I’m aware of and please feel free to give me a hint, when I forget one.
