As I filtered through the 1700+ sessions leading up to Microsoft Ignite, I quickly knew that unless I was able to clone myself I would have some catching up to do. Rather than try to sort through all of the sessions again later, I made a playlist of sessions that I’d like to go back and watch.
The playlist is a compilation of 70+ videos and 24+ hours of content, mostly in the Azure and Office 365 arena since that is where a lot of my focus is these days. Is there a session that shouldn’t be missed? Feel free to let me know what should be added!

There are already great examples of how to install this update, but there are a couple of key gotchas I ran into during deployment.
