Podcast 255 - Killer Game of Solitaire

Tonight I'm all giddy with anticipation about the public Beta of SharePoint 2016. We talk a little about what it will and won't contain. Then I talk about Windows 10 and what to expect when it comes out. Finally I talk about a change I made to my mobile phone.

Microsoft Identity Webinar Series

The last couple of years have been a rough time for us on-prem SharePoint Admins. We weren’t sure what the SharePoint future held for us. Was there going to be another on-prem version of SharePoint? (There is) Will we have to learn how to make good French fries? (I might) I believe I’ve seen the future, and its name is “Hybrid.” In order to make Hybrid environments work happily, your Identity house has to be in order. That’s where Jason Himmelstein and I come in. For the next three Thursdays (July 30th, August 6th, and August 13th, 2015) we’re doing a free, yes FREE webinar series called, Making Sense of Microsoft Identities in a Hybrid World at ITUnity.com.

Week 1 will be a lot of talking. We’ll cover where we come from in regards to Identity with Active Directory and SharePoint. Then we’ll cover what options we have around Hybrid SharePoint and Identity. Then we’ll assign some homework.

Week 2 we’ll roll up our sleeves and walk through setting up some Directory replication and Federation.

Week 3 there will be some tearful goodbyes and also some troubleshooting steps you can use when you’re using these tools.

This webinar is going to be a lot of fun. Go ahead and sign up today. See you there.

Podcast 254 - Seems Almost Offensive

Shane takes the helm this week while I'm travelling for business. He covers some recent data breaches and what they mean to you. He covers some Windows 10, and also explains how the cloud is different for us Microsoft types. It has to do with pets or something. Finally he talks about a great book, "The Hard Thing about Hard Things" and what he learned in it.

Podcast 253 - Long Time Listener First Time Caller

In tonight's podcast I talk a lot about Windows 10. How to install it, where to install it, ways it won't let me install it, the whole gamut. Then I show you all a way to up your PowerShell game in Office 365. I end the show by bringing on a friend of mine, Gerry LaCanu, and we talk about some new Rackspace products that help you get the most out of Office 365 and Azure.

Podcast 252 - I Don't Actually Work for a Living

In this episode I bring in my friend, and all around good guy, Kirk Evans from Microsoft. We discuss Azure, the cloud, Hybrid, and all kinds of fun stuff. Kirk lends a real air of legitimacy to the show, I think. I round things out by talking about what's new with Windows 10, Windows Phone, and a crazy little thing called Groove.

Podcast 251 - I Whine, Stuff Happens

I talk about some big releases in tonight's podcast. Windows 10 Phone released an upgrade, and I actually say good things about it. It adds the feature that I demanded and changes some of the UI dealing with networking that are phenomenal. Then I talk about how Azure AD Connect is out and how great it is. Not to be outdone, Windows 10 released an update this week too. I talk a bit about that and how it hooks into Office 365. I end the show talking about a couple of new gadgets that I've added to my stable.

MVP Award renewed

July 1st is always a scary day for me. Have I secured enough fireworks for the 4th of July, but not so much that I lose any fingers. It’s such a delicate balance to strike.

Oh, and it’s my Microsoft MVP renewal date.

After much anxious waiting I got the email this morning that my MVP status had been renewed for another year. I was very relieved. Thank you to Microsoft for that. This marks my 10th year as an MVP and to say it has been life changing is not hyperbole. It has opened doors for me, and exposed me to some incredible and amazing people. I’m grateful for the entire experience. Thanks to everyone.

Then I talk about the Metro Skype client, the release of Azure Active Directory Connect, and a fun PowerShell trick I stumbled onto. I wrap up talking about password management, a fun topic for everyone involved.

Podcast 248 - Wash Bill Gates Cars

Because of my dedication to my craft, I recorded tonight's podcast from a hotel room in Texas. I started out by addressing some hate mail I received from Windows Phone lovers. After I address that, and wipe my tears, I go on to talking about how great Windows 10 is (please don't send me more hate mail) and I finish up with some SharePoint content. (please don't send me more hate mail)
