365 EduCon DC December 2021 – Slides
Buzzkill & This Week in Teams cohost Jay Leask joined the SPFest team as they brought the #365EduCon brand to Washington DC. Headlined by Microsoft’s Teams & Adoption SME Karuana Gatium, 365 EduCon DC was two years in the making as SPFest DC was delayed twice due to the pandemic. Much of the content was geared toward a US Federal Government who, prior to COVID, was very hesitant to take to someone else’s computer (i.e., the Cloud). Many of these federal agencies quickly found themselves jumping into Microsoft’s SaaS collaboration platform, so while two years ago we assumed this conference would be heavily focused on on-premises content, we found a great deal of interest in the cloud and much less on older platforms.

Either way, Thomas, Jay, and Hunter dig deep on this one and try to keep this as non-technical as possible while deep diving into a highly technical topic. Join us, and let us know what questions you have so we can get you answers!

#MSIgnite 2021 – Day 2 Recap with Sharon Weaver
Day 2 was kicked off by details around Microsoft Viva followed by seemingly small details around Power Platform and Power BI (such as Excel Online’s integration with Power BI pivot tables and object-level security), Lists (offline mode, what!), and Dynamics (see the Day 1 Webinars announcement) — all of which are major features, but seemingly small compared to the Mixed Reality scenes of Mesh.
