There was a ton of news this week about SharePoint all up (on-premises, online, and hybrid), and you may still have some open questions, or just want to hear it all in a summary form. This is a forum session that begins with a 10-minute recap of all the news, and then opens up to a full-blown Q&A session with one of our lead SharePoint senior product managers, Mark Kashman, and anyone he can pull in from the rest of the team. Think of this as the "Ask the SharePoint Experts" to catch all your final, open SharePoint questions.
