What is Azure and Friends?

Azure and Friends is for making Azure friends. <3

We arrange events, share knowledge across companies and learn through open discussion. As an open community, we make it easy for beginners and experts alike to give Azure-related talks. We are independent, seeking to benefit everyone involved with Azure by creating opportunities for collaboration. Let’s come together and get inspired!

About Azure and Friends events

Azure and Friends events offer a fresh twist on a familiar topic: We facilitate a safe environment to give and attend all kinds of talks, engage in interactive group activities, and get new ideas from fellow peers.

There is no typical Azure and Friends speaker; our speakers come from all backgrounds and levels of experience. We foster diversity and enable newcomers to get going with Azure. As a community, we constantly evaluate and evolve our events and approach to keep things fresh.



Code of Conduct

We seek to provide a respectful, friendly, professional experience for everyone, regardless of gender, sexual orientation, physical appearance, disability, age, race or religion. We do not tolerate any behavior that is harassing or degrading to any individual, in any form. The Code of Conduct will be enforced.

Who does this Code of Conduct apply to?

All live stream organizers using the Global Azure brand and Global Azure speakers are responsible for knowing and abiding by these standards. Each speaker who wishes to submit through our Call for Presentations needs to read and accept the Code of Conduct. We encourage every organizer and attendee to assist in creating a welcoming and safe environment. Live stream organizers are required to inform and enforce the Code of Conduct if they accept community content to their stream.

Where can I get help?

If you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, report it. Please report any concerns, suspicious or disruptive activity or behavior directly to any of the live stream organizers, or directly to the Global Azure admins at team@globalazure.net. All reports to the Global admin team will remain confidential.

Code of Conduct for local live streams

We expect local organizers to set up and enforce a Code of Conduct for all Global Azure live stream.
