Hey all,

With conferences everywhere being canceled or postponed, The Live Coders team didn't want to let prepared talks to go waste and decided to put on a free (all-day) online conference on April 9, 2020. They will be featuring several Azure sessions and others hosted by Azure Advocates, but there is content everyone will enjoy.

In case you aren't familiar with the team, we are an outgoing and enthusiastic group of friendly channels that write code, teach about technology, and promote the technical community.
