Episode 65 - The Panel on 2019 predictions - Special Feature

Kicking off this year, we rounded up, well almost had to pay our guests to come on the show to discuss what is in store for 2019, the year of the pig. Who better to do predictions about the direction of all things Microsoft than Warren Marks (The Heckler) and Brandon Botes (Man Crush Monday). Suffice to say, Rod and AL did well to keep this episode under 900 minutes.


2018 Bloopers - All the little things

For those who do not know, at the end of every episode, Rod adds what he calls the blooper. Its the little things that we may say on the show that he edits out so that the listeners only get the quality that Rod deems necessary. This is a compilation of the best bloopers of 2018. Give it a listen and then go find the other bloopers at the end of most episodes! Welcome to 2019 people!


Episode 64 - Our Year in Review - Its not your grandfathers SharePoint

And just like that, 2018 is over. #SadPanda. Also, in a rare coincidence, Rod and AL got to record this episode together in person!! We take a walk down 2018's memory lane and cover what we felt were the highlights of 2018.


Episode 63 - Erica Toelle - The Puerto Rico edition

We continued to abuse AL in his travels and got him to sit down with Erica Toelle at SharePoint Saturday PR. AL and Erica talk Records and Information Management and also grabs Erica's views on where the Microsoft world is heading. As always, we cover all the latest news. This week we looked at some cool Teams dev stuff and also the v2 of the SharePoint Migration Tool. And Rod does his Flow (meh) things.


Episode 62 - Paul Swider - Can you Blockchain?

On more of AL's travels, that we exploited, he found himself in San Juan with none other than Paul J. Swider. We should have spread Paul's interview over 4 episodes cos there's pretty much nothing that he doesn't know. We talk to him about the state of SharePoint dev and a ton of other stuff. As usual, In The News, a few retirements and Rod decided to talk about Kaizala because he changed his segment yet again!!


Episode 61 - Jace Moreno - The Teams Guy

We flew AL to the mothership!! Who are we kidding, he was just there, in Seattle, so we sent him out to do stuff. Anyhow, he tracked down the guy driving the Teams Dev conversation, Jace Moreno. Jace shared with us his thoughts about where it is all going. Teams that is. And then the usual News stuff with a new take on Rod's original segment, now called The PowerShell Power Hour (In 4 minutes).


Episode 60 - The DevOps Ninja, Ruaan Erasmus

For the first time in the history of 2GAS, we have a non-SharePoint guest on the show. The DevOps Ninja/Surfer, Ruaan Erasmus. We chatted to him about his view of the developer world. Not that AL understood a word he said. We carry on covering the news from Ignite and also talk about the new org wide Teams functionality. Rod apologizes for the sound. Now that one arm is firmly holding his baby, only one hand gets used for editing.


Episode 59 - Ignite Recap - Soo much of Awesome!

We are happy to announce that our host, Rod Modlin is the proud father to a baby boy, hence the delay in usual programming. We wish him all of the best, in this new sleep deprived world he now lives in. Back to the program. Our resident traveller, AL, headed to this years Microsoft Ignite to grab all the news about SharePoint, OneDrive, Teams, Azure, etc and we cover all of them in this weeks episode!


Episode 57 - The Hiatus Edition

We are Back!!! After a Hiatus, Rod and AL are back to "full speed ahead". We are still working through apps for the best audio so no guest on this week. AND in this weeks show, we talk about... drum roll... Teams is free! Yes, Free. Soo much of Awesome. AND, Groupify is finally here. Lastly, some hardware news, the usual Flow stuff and lots of the same goodness!


Episode 56 - Heather Newman - The Glitter Episode

A year in the making, we finally, finally managed to track down Heather Newman for this weeks show. Apparently, not even a blizzard could stop her from delivering everything that's fantastic about SharePoint and Office 365! You are our 2GAS Maven! We also talk all things new to SharePoint Online this week as well as some more feature parity between Skype and Teams. AL and Rod are still fighting over PowerApps and Flow. Will it ever end??


Episode 55 - Liz Sundet - Hub Sites are here!

We are celebrating Women in IT this month and second up is Liz Sundet. All we can say is WOW! This woman has 4 lifetimes of accolades, certificates, etc. She plays over 9 instruments and then still drops some mad SharePoint and Office 365 skills and is now learning BI. We are not worthy! We also talk hub sites, the Common Data Service, Guest Access for Planner, Teams retention policies and Rod ONCE AGAIN schools us on all things PowerApps and Flow, and much much more.


Episode 54 - Swetha Sankaran - Teams, Hub Sites, Azure Information Protection

We are back to regular programming with our first guest, the formidable Swetha Sankaran. AL caught up with her at this years MVP Summit. What a great inspiration she is to all women who want to get into Information Technology. As always, we cover the news, and this week we talk about new Teams updates, Hub sites finally rolling out and a ton of AL's favourite stuff, Azure Information Protection. No Blooper at the end of the show though...


Episode 53 - Last of the no interviews - Teams and Planner

Its the first month of the new year (Cos Jan was v2 of 2017) and Microsoft is still churning out quality updates. Will it ever stop? Al and Rod cover new Teams updates, much to the horror of generic users. They delve into cool Planner features and Office 365 for Education. As always, Rod pushes the boundaries of his friendship with AL through tons of PowerApps and Flow stuff. Catch AL and Rod live from Tech Summit in Cape Town this week.


Episode 52 - The hardest show to edit - And OneDrive!

We didn't think they would last beyond episode 30. It's official, 2 guys and SharePoint have 52 episodes in the bag! Here's to another 52! Anyhow, back to regular programming, Rod and AL talk about the new OneDrive Files Restore, Bulk Metadata editing for SharePoint Online, some guidance information for Teams and Rod continues to do more PowerApps things. Apparently it annoys AL. Thank you one and all for listening to the show!


Episode 51 - Rod Takes over with Flow - 1st EP of the year

We are back!! Happy 2018 everyone! Although, it feels very much like v.2 of 2017. Never mind that, we are excited to get the first show out. Its just Rod and AL in the "almost studio". You will notice the sound quality problems as the sound proofing kit has not arrived yet. In this week, we cover new Flow Analytics and Connectors, more PowerApps stuff, and then more Flow connectors. And as always, the regular news updates since we were last on air.


Episode 50 - The Former Cloud Mouth - More Flow and PowerApps

And in this final show of the year, we caught up with the consultant previously known as The Cloud Mouth, Loryan Strant about his view on all the bits of Office 365 and the cloud. In the news this week we cover mobile notifications, Shared with ME tab now available in Word, Excel and PowerPoint and much much more.


Episode 49 - Tech Academy - Resources for the IT Pro

The Timezone debacle. AL hooked up with some peeps in Australia and got the zones mixed, hence the lack of a guest on this weeks show. Besides, Rod and AL can actually do a show without guests!! In this show, we cover resources for IT Pro's wanting to skill up on Office 365 and Azure, Azure Migrate, Document Metadata in SharePoint Online, Office 365 user adoption information, and much much more.


Episode 48 - Warren du Toit, Azure MVP - Compliance Manager

What happens when Microsoft starts cozying up to Linux? They end up converting hardcore linux people to Microsoft tech and then they start loving it and become MVP's. Warren du Toit drops some crazy Azure knowledge on this weeks show. Also, in the news, we talk about the new Compliance Manager from Microsoft, New OneDrive Flow stuffs, and much much more.


Episode 47 - The Country Beard Daniel Glenn - New Flow Stuff

The man that bought a Garth Brooks double CD for Alistair Pugin is on the show. We chat to him about his world and where the industry is going with the new way of working with Microsoft Technologies. NOTE: Testing new remote recording software so AL's audio once again is a bit messy during the interview. We also cover all the new things this week, including Forms capabilities, Project links to Planner, the new App launcher and SharePoint Online Limits.


Episode 46 - When Christian Buckley comes to town - Microsoft Connections

With October being SharePoint Saturday (well its more Office 365, SharePoint and Azure Saturday) month, Mr Booklay as he is now known, came out to SA to spread the word of Microsoft at not only the 3 major events, but also jumped on a minibus taxi with the core team to travel from Johannesburg to Cape Town, stopping in Bloemfontein, East London and Port Elizabeth. We caught up with him in Hermanus for a chat. As always, we cover the latest Microsoft news, including Microsoft Connections,...
