If you’ve been monitoring news today, you know that Microsoft delivered a couple monumental announcements about SharePoint at a virtual event today. But, in case you missed the news, Liam Cleary and Deb Donston-Miller have it all covered:

SharePoint Server 2016, Project Server 2016 and Office Online Server hit general availability

SharePoint 2016: Today Marks New Version’s Debut

A virtual event like the one put on by Microsoft today is a great way to make announcements to a wide audience, much like the in-person conference, Ignite, that Microsoft has planned for September. However, both are really intended to drive news through keynotes and deliver product comprehension at the 1,000-foot view.

For those that really want to dig deep technically into SharePoint 2016 this year, IT/Dev Connections 2016 approaches product coverage from the educational perspective – i.e., we approach product support at the 10-foot view instead. What you get by attending IT/Dev Connections 2016 is exactly what you need to do your job and this includes mastering the skills to implement the latest technologies.

Looking through our currently submitted sessions (which we’ll be releasing publicly soon), we have over 40 dedicated to SharePoint 2016, including an all-day workshop. That’s pretty amazing.
