The Arctic Cloud Developer Challenge is a globally uniqe event. Mixing together a traditional conference with quality sessions, a good old hackathon with world renowned superhero judges from the respective skill domains and a vibrant, knowledge thirsty community around Microsoft cloud technologies.

Arctic Cloud Developer Challenge was formerly known as Arctic SharePoint Challenge.
There has been a notable shift in the marketplace from viewing SharePoint as an isolated entity to more as an important part of a range of loosely coupled, integratable services across Office365, Dynamics 365 and Azure. The focus of the challenge is therefor organically shifting from solely concentrating on SharePoint to embracing all Microsoft cloud technologies.

The main focus this year will be on: Azure, Office 365 and Dynamics 365, but other relevant technologies may be introduced throughout the challenge.

The challenge is taking place:
Oslo, 8-11 February 2018

Keeping up the tradition and success of previous years, the new Arctic Cloud Developer Challenge is being held at the top of Oslo at Voksenåsen Hotel.


#ACDC2018 aims to stimulate collaborative learning, networking and stimulation of ideas for participants through hands-on, time-limited challenges. We are fiercely competitive, yet vastly helpful and extremely sharing (also across teams), realizing that collective learning is more important than personal gain!


We took our values from Nodecopter and our code-of-conduct from JS conf.


  • ACDC is a community event (affordable & inclusive)
  • ACDC is non-profit (all money goes into the events)
  • ACDC is about learning, sharing and fun (be nice)

To ensure that all events follow these values, the core team provides benevolent dictatorship for all events. The core team recruits from a variety of companies and does it best to ensure diversity with resepect to companies and other interests involved.
