Microsoft Ignite is an annual conference for developers and IT professionals. The first conference, then known as TechEd, happened in 1993 in Orlando, Florida, United States. In 2020, it went all online.

This year together with my good colleague Rasmus Jaqué, I got the chance to host a a session about developer community in Denmark & highlights of their projects & initiatives. This is a short recap about this session.
