Microsoft Ignite 2015: MCP Party Alert!

Veronica Sopher - Microsoft

Microsoft Certified Professionals represent one of the largest and most important communities among Microsoft conference attendees. There will be thousands of MCPs at Ignite 2015. Are you one of them? If so, pencil in “MCP party” on your calendar.


Date: Tuesday, May 5, 2015

Time: 7-10 PM

Place: Museum of Science and Industry, Chicago


And the crowd goes wild! Cool


Oh yes. There will be food, drinks, exhibits, photo ops, and a certifiably good time. This MCP party will be larger than ever, but party passes are still required for entry (and I hear Kenji and Patrick are tough bouncers). How to get a pass? Stay tuned for details in April.


Not an MCP yet? Pass an exam by Tuesday, May 5, 2015, and you could also be rubbing elbows with the most certified crowd at Ignite 2015! (Pssst, MCP exams are half price onsite.)


Fair warning: If you hold a legacy certification on a really old version of Microsoft product, I reserve the right to make fun of it publicly. So, consider getting yourself upgraded or take a current exam, eh? Wink See you in Chicago soon!

    Might sound like a silly question, but do we need to register for this?  Also, is there a cost associated with this, and if so, how much?  Thanks for all of your help and info on this!!  I'm excited!!!

    My company finally opened the purse strings for training this year, so I get to go. I definitely plan to take a couple of exams while there. I'm kinda one of those "legacy" folks.

    @Cary - There is no cost for MCPs to attend the party. However, the number of party passes are limited, and will be available on Monday and Tuesday during Ignite week. More details to come in April so stay tuned!

    @John -- Very cool. Have you pre-registered for an exam yet? Do it early in the week to avoid the rush. :) Looking forward to meeting you in Chicago!
