The Cloud 8 summit is a project by Drago Petrovic and Stoyan Chalakov. This project is about organizing events that are accessible to all interested IT enthusiasts in an uncomplicated and free way.

Our focus is to find the best speakers from the areas of Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Azure, who give talks on the respective topics.
Our target audience are IT engineers and IT decision makers.

This year’s summit will also be free of charge for all participants. True to the motto: “By the community, for the community“.

100% Free

Our Summits are traditionally free of charge for all participants.

Recordings available

All registered participants get free access to all Summit recordings after the Summit.

Session Slides

All registered participants will get free access to all session slides of the Summit after the Summit.

Awarded Speaker

Our speakers are very experienced. Many of them have been awarded by Microsoft with the MVP or RD title, or work at Microsoft itself.

Tracks by Technology

Our focus is on Microsoft 365 and Azure. Therefore, we have divided our sessions into 2 tracks.

Microsoft Teams

All our sessions are conducted with Microsoft Teams. This simplifies participation for our attendees.

Our History

2019 | Our first Summit

September 2019

In 2019, the idea arose to set up a summit that would be held according to the principle: “By the community, for the community”.
The first summit was held on a small scale with 6 sessions on Microsoft Teams.
2020 | 2nd virtual Summit

November 2020

Our second Summit was quite a bit bigger than the first one last year. In the second edition on 13.11.2020.

21 sessions were presented by 21 different speakers.

2021 | Two Summits takes place

June 2021

Our third edition of the Cloud Summit was held on “June 4, 2021”.
The third Summit was the largest event to date. A total of 38 speakers (mainly Microsoft MVP’s and/or Microsoft Regional Directors) presented a total of 32 sessions.

December 2021

After the great success of the third Summit, we decided to hold another Summit on 3 December 2021.
The fourth edition was a specialized edition which, in contrast to the third edition, was kept very small.

In this edition we had 8 sessions which were very specific to Cloud Security based on Microsoft 365, Sensitivity Labeling and Data classification.

The fifth edition of the Cloud8 Summit was held on September 23, 2022. Since this edition, we offer our participants the possibility to register for our Summit. With the registration, the Attendees get the opportunity to access slides and recordings of the Summit.

At this event, we had 14 sessions and additionally a keynote, which was conducted by Microsoft.
