We’ve got the best Power Platform Experts

Everybody talks about Microsoft PowerApps, Microsoft Flow and Power BI – but we have got the best experts in those products. There will be a range of sessions devoted to Power Platform: for business deciders, for power users, for developers and for IT professionals who need to manage it all.

Learn everything about Microsoft Teams

Microsoft speakers and MVPs, both from the USA and Europe, will teach you all you need to know about Microsoft Teams: features, business use cases, architecture and extensions. Microsoft Teams is the next generation collaboration tool from Microsoft. It encompasses a broad range of other Microsoft services, to deliver a unified modern collaboration experience to users. A large number of CollabSummit 2021 sessions and full day tutorials was fully or partly focused on Microsoft Teams.

Developer stuff

The European Collaboration Summit is a developer’s paradise. We will again have the legendary Microsoft Office Dev Patterns and Practices Team (PnP) delivering sessions that will help you to become ready for the new ways of development. This is something that every SharePoint / Office 365 developer needs to see. All the important topics will be covered during the conference, including SharePoint Framework and Microsoft Graph – indeed, you name it, and we have it covered. New development capabilities for Microsoft Teams? Sure. SharePoint Dev PnP stuff? The CollabSummit is the unique opportunity to see, hear and meet the PnP team live, in addition to all the other developer legends that will be there.

Community and networking

A conference is never only about the content, especially not a community conference. At the European Collaboration Summit, you will meet Office 365, SharePoint, Microsoft Teams and Power Platform people – business people, leaders, consultants, admins, deciders, developers, end-users, nerds, speakers, MVPs, masters … And they are all there because of knowledge sharing and because of community. Without a doubt, the European Collaboration Summit is a networking and community paradise and represents a unique opportunity to meet all these people in one place.
