The Microsoft interoperability teams are hosting our next plugfest in Taipei, Taiwan on March 25th – 27th. A critical aspect of Microsoft product development is an ecosystem dedicated to shipping interoperable systems and these plugfest-type events are a great opportunities to work closely with other vendors and open source communities, providing extensive documentation and sessions dedicated to testing and feedback.

This free, three-day event will cover a broad range of Microsoft interoperability topics from Windows Server, Office, and SQL Server, including BYOD device management and implementation, open protocols like OData and OAuth, and more.

The agenda will be interactive, with opportunities to discuss product interoperability topics directly with the Microsoft subject matter experts, leverage “internal” tools to test protocol implementations, and provide feedback on Microsoft Open Specifications.

Most sessions will be translated or delivered in Mandarin.  For the complete agenda and event logistics, please see the event site. Or, contact us at plugfests@microsoft.com with any questions or feedback. We hope to see you in March!
