We have been hosting different set of Microsoft 365 community calls since 2015 where we share the latest news and do live demos on the different capabilities in Microsoft 365.
We are excited to share more details on our updated community call structure focusing holistically on the Microsoft 365 developer platform. Based on a community survey from spring 2021, it was visible that a more holistic platform level messaging would be needed, rather than having isolated community calls based on individual products in Microsoft 365. When we are creating solutions and services for the Microsoft 365, we often combine numerous technologies across this platform stack, so this new model is targeted on covering more widely the awesomeness of Microsoft 365.
We will also have some Northern Hemisphere summer cancellations.
What’s new? – New weekly Microsoft 365 Platform community call
This call is targeted for the Microsoft 365 engineering PMs and other Microsoft employees to update our community on the latest features and capabilities across the Microsoft 365.
