#MVPbuzzChat with Tom Daly
For Episode 77 of the #MVPbuzzChat series I connected with fellow Office Apps & Services MVP Tom Daly (@_tomdaly_), an Office 365 and SharePoint developer and consultant with SoHo Dragon in New York City, and one of the primary organizers of SharePoint and user group events in New York and New Jersey.
In this episode, Tom and I discuss his role in supporting community events in New York and New Jersey, including the annual community-driven SharePoint Saturday events in NYC and NJ, the New Jersey Office 365 / SharePoint User Group, the Global Azure Bootcamp NJ, and the Microsoft-led Global Office 365 Developer Bootcamp NJ/NYC. I got to know Tom many years ago by participating in the New York SPS and user group events as a speaker and sponsor, and was also excited to see his familiar face in the audience when I provided the remote keynote for SPS Ahmedabad (India) last year when Tom was in-country visiting SoHo Dragon’s development team.
In addition to talking about his many community activities, we discuss the evolution of SharePoint Saturday and other Microsoft-ecosystem conferences and events, with some groups going through minor re-branding efforts to appeal to a broader Microsoft technology audience.
