Vlad & Drew Microsoft Cloud Webinar Series

There is a constant release of new Microsoft cloud technologies and it is hard to keep up to date. There can be features that are released and the not widely seen or there could be questions about that feature that aren’t answered with the initial release. We want to try to close that gap of knowledge.

Vlad Catrinescu and myself, Drew Madelung, have begun putting together a webinar series where we will be targeting Microsoft modern workplace technologies and doing deep dives into specific feature releases. We want to bring experts from Microsoft and the community to share the details of what is being released and break down into the technology to really try to help everyone understand what the feature is meant to do, can do, and answer any outstanding questions.

Please join us and spread the word for these webinars. If you missed one, make sure you watch the recording! And if you have any suggestions for topics to deep dive into please let Vlad or myself know.
