What we're about

We are a leading technology user group of more than 1500 enthusiasts in the Frankfurt am Main and Rhein-Main region with a focus on cloud and related technologies. We love Microsoft Azure, but we are more than happy to present also other technologies. We meet at approx. once per month on different locations around Frankfurt and present all sessions in the English language. Because of COVID restrictions, we deliver at the moment all sessions remotely only and hope to change this soon.

Even if you are not located in the Frankfurt area, feel welcome to join us.

We usually deliver one or more break-out sessions in English with internationally recognized speakers, Microsoft employees, Most Valuable Professionals, Regional Directors or great people who want to present their project and ideas.
