On Saturday, April 27th I had the pleasure of speaking at the Global Azure Bootcamp Hollywood.
The Global Azure Bootcamp is a free one-day global event, driven by Microsoft MVPs/RDs, Cloud experts, Evangelist, and Community Leaders. The sessions help both new learners and experienced professionals in learning new things about the Microsoft cloud.
Community user group organizers around the world made 324 meetups happen on Global Azure Day with 20,000 attendees.
Big thanks to the LAEXUG Foundation who put on the event at the Microsoft Playa Vista office.
Had a great time speaking at the event on workplace toxicity and increasing productivity by leveraging Microsoft Teams and Planner. You can check out the decks from my presentation below.
