This is a retrospective perspective episode based on three recent in-person tech events: 1) The European Collaboration Summit in Düsseldorf, Germany, 2) the Microsoft 365 Collaboration Conference in Vegas, and 3) 365 EduCon event in DC (formerly SharePoint Fest). We hear from Spencer Harbar (one of the EU Collab Summit leads), and Mark shares both first- and third-person thoughts on seeing others face-to-face to share and listen. Oh, to roam the conference halls, coffee chats, solution building in the expo with partners - plus a little SWAG. Explore the tactical notion of once again meeting others, training others, and getting feedback with smiles "in person" - after 2+ years. This episode is a glimpse into recent stirrings of the best community in tech.
