Many customers and partners have been asking about starting an Office 365 user group and/or having some sort of Office 365 Saturday events (similar to SharePoint Saturday) here in the Northeast. We would cover various Office 365 related topics and include Exchange, SharePoint, Yammer, Lync, and Office related sessions.
Please let me know if you're interested in working together on and/or joining this.
The goal would be to do something in the Boston area to start after the New Year.
March 22, 2014 Update
The Boston Office 365 user group will be launched in May. The first meeting will be on Thursday evening, May 22 at the Microsoft New England Research & Development building in Cambridge, MA. Please sign up for our mailing list. We will also be providing more details about this at our Best of SharePoint Conference event this week and at SharePoint Saturday Boston in April.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
Sounds like an excellent idea. It would be a great way to keep up with the ever changing Office 365 space and see how other companies are leveraging Office 365 capabilities.
Hello Chris and interested Others: Can anyone suggest or recommend a Boston based integrator that could assist us with evaluating, adopting, and evangelizing the use of Office 365 in a mid size company? Thanks and best of luck with the users group. Peter
Greetings,March is upon us. Is this gaining any traction?Thanks!
Yes, this will be launched in May. Sorry for the delay but we've been focused on completing our best of SharePoint Conference (end of March) and SharePoint Saturday Boston (mid April) events. The Office 365 user group will be launched in May. More details will be shared shortly.
