Coming to Microsoft Ignite? Let’s Get Together (Updated)

Posted on September 24, 2018 by Paul Thurrott in Brad, Paul with 10 Comments

Brad and I are here in Orlando, Florida for Microsoft Ignite 2018. Here’s how you can come meet us at the show.

First Ring Daily

Brad and I will also be recording two episodes of the First First Ring Daily podcast live from the show. Curiously, we’re doing each from a different location this time.

The first live show is on Monday, September 24 from 12:30 to 1:30 pm in what’s called the Podcast Pop-up in West Hall C. This is not the larger Podcast Studio, so we can’t really accommodate a live audience per se. That said, it’s right in the middle of West Hall C, so I think anyone can still show up and watch us in the terrarium.

The second live show is on Tuesday, September 25 from 12:30 to 1:30 pm. This one will be held in the Podcast Studio, which does accommodate a live audience, in West Hall C. And for this reason, we’d like to do something special for anyone who can attend.

The first 20 people who show up for the podcast recording on Tuesday will get a Mas Fuel invite and a t-shirt.

The next 20 will get a t-shirt.

And one lucky winner will get a Surface Go tablet, the Mas Fuel invite, and a t-shirt. And if they’re not already a Premium member, we’ll give them a one-year membership to Premium too!

You have to attend the Tuesday recording to win these prizes, of course.

Windows Weekly

Mary Jo and I will be recording an episode of Windows Weekly live from the show as well. It’s scheduled for Tuesday, September 25 from 2:15 to 4:15 pm in the Podcast Studio in West Hall C. And yes, we can accommodate a live audience.

Windows Weekly meetup

After the podcast, Brad will be joining Mary Jo and me—and, I assume, other tech bloggers attending the show—at our Windows Weekly meetup the week of Microsoft Ignite. Everyone is invited, as it won’t be in the conference center where show passes are required.

Where: Copper Canyon Grill, 9101 International Dr #1220, Orlando, FL 32819

When: 4:30 to 6:30 pm ET

    I will be there representing my company and look forward to meeting up!


    Looking forward to the mayhem!

    Just a 20 hour plane flight away. Sounds like it would be epic, but not worth the dollars to fly or the unplanned time away from work.

    Maybe you guys could come to do one of the Microsoft, or maybe NDC, shows in Australia one day? Lots of stupid stuff to do here to make a good video ?

    I'm still bummed that Microsoft didn't permit press at Inspire (partner con) this year. I miss the live tapings of WW for sure.

    Looks like Ignite is all sold out. Probably a good thing, the $2400 pass plus food and lodging must be a corporate write off. Have fun.

    I live in Bradenton, but my daughter lives in Orlando, which is a little over two hours from me. I would plan a visit to my daughter to coincide with the meetup.
