What we're about

The Northern Virginia 365 and Azure User Group is hosted exclusively online. The group was brought to fruition by Dan Usher and Scott Hoag and has changed over the years. This group is meant to provide a place for practitioners, professionals, and enthusiasts to learn and share ideas during the work day. While most topics are SharePoint centric, presentations also include topics related to Microsoft 365 and Azure.

If you’re interested in speaking, sponsoring or for more information, contact Dan, Jay, and Isaac at usergroup@nova365.ms.

However, some organizations hesitate to embrace Teams due to the implications of Teams in the Architecture. This session will discover how we can architect our intranet with Teams in mind, not only to reduce duplication of sites, but to use existing team sites with Microsoft Teams. While building out a sample Intranet architecture, we'll discuss security and architecture best practices for SharePoint and Teams, the implications of private channels, and see how tabs and connectors help us turn our Teams channels into true digital hubs for teamwork. ---- The Joy of SharePoint - Microsoft MVP & Modern Workplace Strategist Joy T.
