Microsoft will be the Premiere Sponsor this year’s Devcon2.

The Ethereum Foundation has recently announced the Ethereum developer conference, Devcon2, will feature Microsoft as the Premiere Sponsor.

The weeklong event will be held in Shanghai on September 19-21, 2016. The Foundation also reported the event will be included in the International Blockchain Week alongside Wanxiang Blockchain Labs’ 2nd Global Blockchain Summit.

Vitalik Buterin, the Ethereum Foundation’s Chief Scientist, stated that he is honored by the amount of support Microsoft has given the company. He said, “We are very happy to have Microsoft’s sponsorship for Devcon2 and highly appreciate their continued support and collaboration with the Ethereum Foundation and the Ethereum ecosystem. We look forward to continuing to work together in the future.”

Microsoft was one of the first high profile companies to take an interest in the Ethereum and its protocol. Marley Gray, the Director of Blockchain and Distributed Ledger Business Development for Microsoft expressed the same gratitude towards the blockchain platform. He said, “We’re thrilled to support the Ethereum Foundation’s Devcon2, which will bring together pioneers in blockchain from all over the world.”

Gray continues:

The Ethereum blockchain is powerful, and we’re looking forward to continuing the collaborative relationship with the Ethereum community, together bringing the best of blockchain technology to our cloud platform, Microsoft Azure.

As a sponsor, Microsoft will present their Ethereum-based project, Azure, as well as its principal tools for the blockchain developers.

According to the blog, the website for the event is in the works and will be available in late June.
