DIWUG Ignite 2018 Recap

DIWUG Ignite 2018 Recap

Another year another Ignite, so from the 24th till the 28th of September 2018 I was in Orlando for the MSIgnite. So it only made sense to do a DIWUG Ignite recap almost three weeks later. As usual the Ignite was all about the community and all the new stuff that is coming. With 755 sessions on Microsoft 365 and SharePoint and almost 400 hours of recorded materials on those topics doing a recap in 45 minutes was quite challenging.

You can download the Lookbook or visit the SPDesign website for guidance. During the Ignite itself Microsoft also published an overview of most of their announcements in a Book of news.

DIWUG Slides

Most of the presentations given by the Product Teams contained a nice overview slide with their roadmap and what is coming. So during my preparations for the DIWUG I downloaded almost all slide decks and sifted through them to get those roadmap slides. Each slide in the presentation is marked with the session number so you can easily find them yourself. I would say that the following ten sessions can help you stay up to date.
