Today, Microsoft announced the week of May 4, 2015 in Chicago, IL they will be hosting the inaugural, unified Microsoft Commercial Technology Conference! This conference is basically replacing thee SharePoint, Lync and Project Conferences as well as TechEd North America. One reason listed is that all these products are evolving and having a heavy Cloud focus. This new conference will also be very Office 365 focused as well.
The July meeting of the Office 365 International User Group has been scheduled for July 22nd. Use the below link to add the meeting and Lync information to your calendar.
I, along with the others, will be giving a recap of the Microsoft World Partner Conference. We will also have Mimecast give a presentation on some new features and tools they have developed.
Hope you can you us!
Unfortunately I was unable to join/facilitate the June Office 365 International User Group Meeting. But it did go on without a problem! Martina Groom and Jethro Seghers handled the meeting and did an outstanding job. Jethro, who now works for BitTitan, gave an overview of the new and improved features of the Migration tool MigrationWiz.
Here is the Video of the June Meeting, enjoy!
Tomorrow, July 1st, is the date when I will find out if I have been re-awarded as an Office 365 MVP. Waiting in the Denver Airport I composed the below little poem:
‘Twas the night before MVP Renewal, when all through the Cloud
Not an MVP was sleep, waiting to unveil the shroud
The Blogs posts posted on the web with care
In Hope that Microsoft would be fully aware
The MVP’s checking out the scene
While visions of MVP Status danced in there screen
And Microsoft reviewing every little Forum Post
All that could be done was completed to the most
When the MVP candidate finally fell fast asleep
In the morning the Phone gave out such a beep
Up from the slumber did the fellow arise?
To check what was in the email surprise?
Confirmation that one more year earned
Thankful to Microsoft of what he had yearned
One more year of Status is thankfully awarded
The very such thing I have been desperately hoarded
