Welcome to Global Azure 2024!

Since the very first Global Azure Bootcamp, organised over ten years ago, what is now known as Global Azure has gone from strength to strength. Three days where enthusiasts, professionals, students and community leaders around the world come together to share their knowledge, experience, and passion for the Microsoft Azure cloud.

We are excited to announce that Global Azure 2024 will take place on Thursday 18th, Friday 19th, and Saturday 20th of April! You can also be part of the greatest global community event about Azure technology on the planet!

Global Azure is a worldwide event (the clue is in the name!) but even with communities taking part across six continents it doesn't mean that there is an event near you.

Don't worry: The community has got you covered! Several of the events over the course of Global Azure 2023 will be streaming content, including those being held in the Microsoft Reactors.

Engineering a chain reaction: Global Azure at the Microsoft Reactors

We've always had a great relationship with Microsoft throughout all the years we have run Global Azure. This year, Microsoft offered the support of leveraging their Reactor spaces worldwide to help with Global Azure 2023. Located in major cities around the world and accessible online, the Reactors provide free content for the broader developer community and in 12 locations around the globe, space for Microsoft and community-led events year round.

A statement regarding current events

Global Azure was conceived as an event delivered by the community for the community. In our minds ‘community’ is inclusive of all nations, genders, religions, cultures and race. We strive to help each of us be better through the umbrella of an event which promotes sharing, teaching, and directly using technology for good through our Global Science Lab.

We are saddened that current events facture that community. We condemn any behaviour that attacks or excludes people, from prejudice to war. From our humble position as an event intended to foster goodwill and betterment for all involved, we will continue our efforts in that regard.

We will miss our friends that are not able to place their pins on our map this year. We hope that they are safe, and we will welcome them back to Global Azure in future.
