Microsoft is assisting MCTs to offer 3 days of training for MCTs on the latest Microsoft products and technologies.
The summit will be held at Microsoft’s office in San Francisco , September 8 through 11th 2015
Presentations for developers, IT Pros, SQL, Office, and Personal Development will be given by fellow MCTs and presenters from Microsoft.  This year’s MCT Summit will include sessions to prepare MCTs for teaching Microsoft’s Cloud computing classes.  Another feature of this year’s MCT Summit
We have three fully equipped classrooms for hands-on sessions, including  Windows 10
As an MCT for many years I know how valuable it is to socialize with fellow MCTs, representatives from Microsoft, and venders.  We have set aside Wednesday evening for you to network during our “Meet and Greet” evening sponsored .  We hope you will attend.
Affordable – In creating this event we wanted to make this affordable for MCTs.  For MCTs living in North America we are estimating the total expense to attend to be less than $1,200 from any major city (this estimate includes airfare, hotel, MCT Summit, and meals).  For most  MCTs it should be less then $1,000.  We want you to attend.  The discounted rate for your hotel stay will continue through the weekend should you want to stay and bring your significant other.
Speakers
Those interested in presenting may submit session proposals to speakers@mctsummit.org.   Sessions slots are approximately 1hr in total length (45 minutes plus questions); however, presentations may span multiple sessions if requested. We have three fully equipped classrooms for half day or longer hands-on sessions.  Working on a new class?  This event is the perfect opportunity to try out your new class and have your fellow MCTs offer critiques.
We are seeking proposal for the following session tracks:
  • Developers
  • IT Pros
  • SQL
  • Office
  • Personal Development.
Have something you want to try? Please submit your suggestion.
Speakers in the Making
Interested in becoming a TechEd speaker?  You need to start somewhere.  For those interested in becoming a speaker we submit a session proposal and we will pair you with a mentor.  Your mentor will work with you on your presentation and speaking skills to prepare you for presenting at the summit.  At the summit your mentor will act as your safety net should you encounter any issues.  At the end of your presentation we will ask your fellow MCTs to provide you with positive feedback.
Request a Session – Have a request for a session?  Submit your session ideas to sessionrequest@mctsummit.org  and we will see if we can acquire a presenter.   Requests for session ideas can be for any of the tracks or any topic: Developer, IT Pro, SQL, Office, SharePoint, Dynamics, or for hands-on lab sessions.
