About Virtual Azure Community Day

Virtual Azure Community Day was brought to life by people working in Developer Relations at Microsoft. It was an answer to the struggles a lot of communities were faced with when they couldn't meet in person anymore. The concept is to completely facilitate an online community event for Azure communities around the world. Focusing on bringing a good experience, accessibility and diversity. For this to happen they reached out to Thursday.cloud, a local community well experienced in Online meetups, and asked if they could organize an event like this.

Virtual Azure Community Day is a community event in the sense that it has proven to be a successful platform in amplifying communities all over the world. For this event to happen Microsoft facilitates the planning and the program, Thursday.cloud organizes this event and we together work with various meetup groups. We have an open CFP to give everyone a chance to be heard.
