There will be over 50 Speakers at the event, some of which you can probably recognize from the picture below, and even if the conference has SharePoint in its name, it will cover Office 365, Planner, Microsoft Teams, Microsoft Flow, Yammer, and almost all the products in Office 365 that interreact in a way or another with SharePoint!

PowerShell all the things
