Stargazing Sessions


Northern Lights is the theme for 2024 at MOA where you'll spot speakers clad in northern lights gear and private sessions named Stargazing.

Microsoft Stargazing sessions offer you 20 minutes to speak directly with Microsoft developers to bring up issues or offer suggestions for improvement to anything related to ConfigMgr or Intune.

Bring your notebook or simply ask the Microsoft developers to open their console and repeat your steps on what isn't working\making sense\could do better.

Speaker Stargazing sessions offer you 20 minutes with MMS speakers where you can ask anything you like in privacy. You can also just use this time to meet with your favorite speaker.


The stargazing tents are in the foyer by the registration desk. Here is a map. You'll find Microsoft developers and PMs in the red tent and speakers\MVPs in the black tents.

These sessions will run at the same time as other sessions. Feel free to leave your current session for 20 minutes and pop back in when done; speakers won't be offended by your walking out. They know to expect it.


Stargazing Sessions cannot be booked in directly!

Find Wally to book your session. You are likely to spot him at the registration desk or over by the tents.

Wally will take walk-ups on a case-by-case basis throughout the week. Just ask if anything is currently open.

Limit: 1 session per attendee max per day (but again, if a tent is open when you walk-up, Wally can let you in).
