Tatjana Skoko (Microsoft) commented with moderators on how Microsoft handles remote work and how Teams assists in all of this. Addis Jugo (SysKit) expanded the world of business productivity with artificial intelligence, explaining how to use Azure Cognitive Services to analyze data on Teams and SharePoint and turn a wealth of data into a modern and smart knowledge base. Marin Frankovic (Span) presented the innovations in the infrastructure components of Microsoft Azure, explained which to choose and how to best use them. Ivica Skender and Andrej Loncaric (GDi) have shown how the modern geoinformation platform helps in crisis situations such as the recent earthquake in Zagreb and the current coronavirus epidemic.

Luka Manojlovic (MA-NO) explained why the already well-known VPN technology is a particularly interesting solution at this time when teleworking is prevalent.
To make the conference experience as similar as possible to live conferences, attendees were able to engage with commenters and ask questions for the presenters, and to demonstrateknowldege in the quiz and win prizes. WinDays are unimaginable without parties, so the program ended with the exclusive announcement of Ivan Dečak from the group Vatra, who introduced the new single "All Our Summers" live.
WinDays Virtual has only provided participants with a part of the content. They will be able to hear more at the main conference in the autumn, and will also be able to follow the Road to WinDays series of lectures in the run up to the conference, which will further present conference topics to them.
