On 25th of January 2019, we will have the first Azure Low Lands Event in Rotterdam. The Azure Low Lands event will be a single day event with two tracks around Microsoft Azure Platform as a Service (PaaS) offerings, ranging from for containers, data, integration all the way to DevOps, IoT and AI.

Microsoft as one of the big cloud providers is investing heavily in PaaS services – and we see significant growth in the demand for content and events. As organizers, we felt compelled to organize a PaaS focused event with local and European speakers. We wanted to bring such an event to the Netherlands, similar to small sized events like CloudBrew (Belgium), Cloudburst (Sweden), and IglooConf (Finland). These events bring an intimate vibe and the opportunity to network with peers and speakers.

As an attendee, you will be able to listen to several great sessions around Microsoft PaaS from our hand-picked selection of top-speakers. The sessions will provide you with the latest developments, insights, and roadmaps of Microsoft’s PaaS services portfolio and are focused on developers, IT-pro’s and architects.

Azure Low Lands will be small size event and number of seat limits to 150. The cost of attending the event will be € 100 (Early Bird September – November) and regular € 150 (December – January).
