Who is it for?


LEAP is aimed at software architects and developers, delivering solutions for an enterprise, an ISV or as a consultant. With a broad focus on technology, LEAP will extend your knowledge of working with Microsoft’s technologies, although prior knowledge of Microsoft’s software portfolio is not required.


The program will give you the breadth of knowledge required by today's architects to deliver robust, secure and scalable solutions. It is founded on well-documented patterns and practices.

Why should you come?


LEAP provides an arena for questions and dialogue with some of the best speakers, engineers and program managers that Microsoft can provide.


A unique opportunity to visit Microsoft HQ campus in Redmond.


Value for money: Five days of guided architecture-focused topics that enable you to deliver tomorrow's solutions, today.


A great chance of getting to know the people behind the products at Microsoft. Learn who we are and what we can do for you, making the threshold for reaching out to us lower.
