Last week, we announced that TeamsFest has become Teams Nation. We also announced that we will be going ahead on Wednesday 26th May 2021 for the next event.

TeamsFest is coming soon – here’s 10 reasons why you should join us

I can't believe that TeamsFest is nearly here - I really can't. It seems like only yesterday that Adam, Vesa and I started the call for speakers. This was back in december when we all felt like there was a certain luxury of time. Yet this year has been insanely busy - and I guess we should have known better given we did this back in October for Oktoberfest! Organising a conference has been one of the most rewarding things we've ever done. It's exhausting! - but there's nothing quite like it. That's why we wanted to do it again. We love Teams, we love the community, and we really wanted to bring some of the most passionate and best minds in the field together for a day of celebrating what it is that we love doing. If you love teams, love community and are thinking about joining us then here is 10 reasons why I think you should join us

Ignite Live Blog: TMS40 Managing Microsoft Teams Effectively

Managing Microsoft Teams Effectively is the fourth session in the Journey to Teams learning path. It was the one I’d wanted to blog about when MVP’s were presented with the opportunity to do so. Why? I strongly believe in the effective management of Microsoft Teams - but also because I knew Anne Michels was delivering the session. For anyone who has seen Anne live, they’ll know that she is one of the most passionate and engaging speakers in Microsoft - and I personally saw her knock it out the park in a Teams Architecture session back in Berlin last December during Microsoft Ignite the Tour.

An MCT’s perspective on taking a Microsoft Fundamentals Exam (FAQ’s)

If you are about to take a Microsoft Fundamentals exam, or are thinking of taking one in the future, it is perfectly natural to ask questions pertaining to that exam such as 'What is a Microsoft Fundamentals exam actually like?' 'How many questions are there?' 'What can I do to prepare to give myself the best opportunity to pass?' Having taught both the Azure (AZ-900TO1A) and Microsoft 365 (MS-900TO1A) courses several times this year across the UK and Ireland, it may come as little surprise that I get these questions a lot. I am always happy to answer them. I am a firm believer that if we can understand these exams and what we are facing, we are better prepared to go in and give our best performance without any surprises which may negatively impact the end result. This is a collection of FAQ's from those deliveries which I hope can help you go on to achieve the result you need

Teams Real Simple with Pictures: Integrating the Microsoft 365 Roadmap with Teams via Flow

In my personal experience, it is not just IT Pro's who want to keep up to date with roadmaps and have an understanding of whats coming to the platforms they manage. Enthusiasts and evangelists are often eager to see new features that they may be able to leverage or rave about to their partners and customers. Support always wants to know what's coming down the pipe in order to prepare for what they see are inevitable issues. Finance loves anything which can lead to greater ROI and save money - and CEO's often like to know they got it right.
