Windows Weekly 485: Live From Microsoft Ignite

Posted on September 29, 2016 by Paul Thurrott in Podcasts, Windows Weekly with 12 Comments

Mary Jo and I are live from Microsoft Ignite in Atlanta, and we join Fr. Robert Ballecer to discuss all the news from the show, including Windows Server 2016, Windows 10 at 400 million users, Microsoft’s hybrid cloud strategy, Azure’s AI supercomputer,  big updates for OneDrive, SharePoint, and Office 365, and so much more.

Running time: 1:51:49

Special thanks

Thank you to everyone who came out for the live show (and were able to actually find the B/C Connector), and to everyone who came to our meet-up after the show. It’s always great to connect with the amazing community of people who follow the show and our blogs. Seriously, thanks so much!
