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.
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.
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.
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.
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,...
Just AL and Rod this week, but they cover soo much!! Skype, Teams, SharePoint 2019, Hub Sites, Machine Learning, Bing for Business. We got tired just typing this out.

Yes, we were at Ignite and we did a show at the Podcast center!! How awesome is that!

42 Episodes in. Who would have thought. Thanks to all our listeners. Without you, it would just be AL and Rod talking shop like they do all the time.

As always we cover the news, talking Cloud App Security, the new iPad Yammer app, OneNote Classroom inside of Teams and much, much more.
AL disappears to Los Angeles to a secret client but posts all over the interwebs. There's no guest this week as we lead up to the largest geekfest on the planet, Microsoft Ignite, 25th to 29th September 2017. w00t!! AND we will be podcasting live from there! Super Amped! However, the show must go on; we talk about Ignite and the lead up, we cover what little news there was, we talk MFA, SharePoint document library flows, and cover the local scene. We love our listeners. Apparently its a...
We managed to track down the man with the greatest voice over vocals in the IT industry. None other than the infamous Chris HuntingFord. That's Ford with a capital F. Our tattoo'ed CRM God chats to us about how the technology has progressed and morphed into the Dynamics 365 icon in the Office 365 app Launcher. We also launched 2 new segments. Rod now does "Go with the Flow" instead of PowerShell and AL does something stupid called "New Features AL did not know about, of the week"... As...
In this weeks show, we kept it all about the latest news from Microsoft. Enter Microsoft 365.

Our first MCM on the show! Goosebumps. AND he is one of only 8 Exchange MCM/MVP combo's on the planet. *Big Deal*. With AL travelling to Cape Town to track down the one and only Nicolas Blank, Rod had been waiting for the interview so that he and AL could do the rest of the show. Instead Nic hijacked this weeks entire show. AL chatted to him about his role changing from traditional Exchange to more business consulting. We also cover the latest news, including a wrap up of last month's...
The way the show works, Alistair does pretty much nothing except suffer from verbal diarrhea every week and Rod is left with making the show sound as good as it does. Our "Easter egg" is during the closing audio in the form of the blooper reel that Rod adds after ripping out all the nonsense. Most episodes have it. This one is arguably the best. Go scan through the others now!!
The Vlad is here people. We have him on the show! Hot off the back of the SHARE Conference in South Africa.

We cover the Stream GA announcement this week, Microsoft Dictate and our other usual segments. Don't forget the blooper reel after the closing track.
The man with the largest, uhm, knowledge about migrations to and from SharePoint, Mr Jonty Collins, climbed into our mobile studio this week to talk about where the world is regarding migration and how we in SA compare to Australia. This week is very apt as South Africa prepares for the arrival of Microsoft Datacenters in Johannesburg and Cape Town. As always we cover the usual weekly Office 365 and other Microsoft news, and a lot, lot more.
Look ma, a new toolchain! Oh and AL is back from his EuroTrip. This week we chat to Sébastien Levert, the happiest guy in SharePoint. He has fallen in love with Intranets and wants you to love his Intranet. Makes sense that he works at Valo. We talk all things "moving to the SPFx" and also cover the usual news from the world of Microsoft.
