Welcome to the official blog for the Garage Series for IT Pros. As we gear up for the commercial release of the new Office, I'm excited to announce that we will also be bringing you a brand new weekly show, here on this blog, each Wednesday starting February 27th from the Microsoft Garage. We'll explore what's new, different and we hope, better with the new Office from a manageability, deployment and automation perspective. 

So what does skydiving, aerobatics, Ferraris or wakeboarding have to do with the new Office? Well what are the most XStream Installs that you can think of on air, land and water with Office 365 ProPlus?

Add a reminder to your calendar to tune in each Wednesday 9am PST:

We are seriously passionate about technology and automation. So watch as we challenge ourselves to show you what's possible, including never before seen demos as we answer some of your toughest questions and even catch up with the engineers behind the new Office and Microsoft Technical fellow, Mark Russinovich.

So mark your calendars to watch every Wednesday starting February 27th, as we cover topics such as Who moved my MSI?, specific considerations for a user-based office, the ins and outs of managing an Office configuration, including virtual environments and much more.
