Next week in Washington, D.C., Microsoft partners from around the world will gather to learn more about the company's direction for 2015 and gain insight directly from the company on how they can better leverage their ecosystems. Seeing that Microsoft depends heavily on third-parties to support its operations, this is one of the company's biggest conferences of the year.
As you would expect at a conference of this caliber for the company, Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella will be headlining the vision keynote and COO Kevin Turner will be presenting as well. Given that the top two execs from the company will be present and that Nadella set the framework for a "new" Microsoft, the keynotes should be packed with unique information.
The first vision keynote kicks off on Monday at 8:45 a.m. ET (5:45 a.m. PT) and as with all Microsoft events, we will be covering every bit of news that comes out of the conference.
If you are headed to the event, we will be hosting a Tweet-up with Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurrott at City Tap House at 4 p.m. July 15.
