Microsoft Partner Conference in Toronto

I travel to lots of conferences. And I started enjoying keynotes from the comfort of my couch, without the need to spend endless hours in an aluminium tube flying across the Atlantic. MWPC16 is no exception. Today I just watched Satya Nadella's keynote. Don't worry, it's just an hour, and it updates you on what Microsoft is working on. Executive summary: digital transformation with Office 365 + Dynamics 365 + Azure. Dynamics 365 is incredibly important for Microsoft's future when competing with Salesforce.com.

This a huge event. 16000 people, more than 500 partner companies from Germany alone. I really liked the stage in the middle of a stadium with four huge screens overhead.

You can watch the keynotes here 24 hours later. Satya's keynote is already online.

Save some time. Satya comes on stage at 18m:45s.

I wish he could talk at 20 maybe 30 words per minute faster.

I am sure he can. But when English is not your native language, then it is easier to understand, if the speaker is not rushing. This is the Worldwide Partner Conference after all.

There is a playback rate control available in the player, albeit hidden. Tried (via Inspect) to add menu options to the control, but no success alas.

@Volker - Yes, I agree and understand. Unfortunately for me the slow speed means it looses any impact and just makes it dull. Re-reading my comment - I suppose it's what to expect living in a land of Brexit. (hangs head)

@Lars - that's excellent. I will definitely try that out. I actually gave up at about 40 minutes.
