I have been part of the awesome SharePoint Connect Amsterdam for the past three years. It is definitely one of my favorite events! Great speakers, content and location where speakers, delegates and sponsors all interact. In my eyes one of the top conferences in Europe. This year IT Unity is partnering with the organization behind SharePoint Connect Amsterdam and the new name is Unity Connect Amsterdam. Once again I am proud to be part of this event as the speaker chair and part of the session selection team. Together with Scot Hillier, Spencer Harbar and Mirjam van Olst the first speakers and sessions are announced on the website. Click here to view the speaker overview.
I am going to be pretty busy! I am doing a workshop, full session and 20 minute session! Oh boy! Hereby the abstracts:

Office 365 Groups: What’s Going On With You?
Microsoft launched Office 365 Groups in the fall of 2014 for its first release customers. Although it was very exciting to see a new feature coming from Redmond, Office 365 Groups raised many questions. What’s the impact for my current Intranet portal? Are team sites going to be deprecated? What is my business value by using Groups? During this session, Jasper Oosterveld, Office 365 MVP, is going to answer these questions and show you were Groups stand, a year after its release.
