But now we’ve got you covered!

Every month, we’ll round up our most engaging tweets, posts and things we’ve yelled from the top of a building and put them all together in our latest “What You May Have Missed This Month” segment. Now you’re set with a one-stop shop of all things Cloud and SharePoint that we thought were worth sharing. And if you’ve already read them – give yourself a pat on the shoulder and know that we’re all standing on our desks cheering for you.

We’re always looking for more great content to share, so if you think something is worthwhile, send it our way and we’ll take a look! Got an idea for a blog? Let us know about that too.
