Nine countries, twenty-four cities and hundreds of community leaders, technology enthusiasts and MVPs will participate in the Asia Pacific MVP Community Camp starting March 17.
Over two-dozen MVPs will present during a week-long series of events. It all kicks off on Monday, March 17, 2014, with the first ever rendezvous of technical communities from across the region.
"MVPs have rich experience and knowledge, we're technophiles!" says ASP.NET/IIS MVP Demo Fan. "That’s why we joined the MVP ComCamp, it covers all the hot topics so community members can learn the best use of technologies directly from MVPs."
MVP Community Camp (#MVPComCamp) is a six-day event with live webcasts and in-person seminars. MVPs from nine countries will deliver free, public webcasts providing expert-level insight into technology trends and techniques. The in-person seminars will be available in 24 cities across nine countries with tracks providing opportunities to connect with others in the same expertise and interest.
Topics range from Microsoft Cloud OS to the latest devices & services. Throughout the week, MVPs and other technical community experts will present more than 200 webcasts and in-person seminars focusing on themes such as application development, enterprise management and SMB solutions.
"As a speaker it is an opportunity to share my knowledge and real world experience in deploying the technologies with the attendees," says Hyper-V MVP Alessandro Cardoso.
