CONVINCE YOUR BOSS

 

Want to attend the Insider Dev Tour, but not sure how to bring it up to your boss? Here’s a sample letter that will help you out. Just replace the text in [brackets]

Dear [my boss’s name],

I’d like to attend the Microsoft Insider Dev Tour on [date] in [city]. The Insider Dev Tour is Microsoft's free, single-day, local, developer-focused event, bringing the latest technology and practical knowledge from the people who build the products. The content for the event, alone, is worth the trip, but the ability to network with Microsoft employees, community leaders, and subject matter experts will help me in my work here.

Here are two ways in which my attendance at the Insider Dev Tour will strengthen [company name]: 

  • The presentations are relevant to my daily tasks and growth. I will get a view of the broad developer roadmap at Microsoft, and also deep dives into current practical and future-looking technologies for building Microsoft 365 applications using Windows desktop, Web, and Graph.

  • Networking with other attendees, community leaders, and Microsoft engineers is highly encouraged, so I can talk with people who have solved issues similar to those we run into.

The event is free, so all I need is a single day to attend. You can learn more about the event by visiting http://insiderdevtour.com . Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns; I’d really like to attend this event!

Thanks.

[my name]
