#MVPbuzzChat with Joel Oleson

Image result for joel olesonFor Episode 41 of the #MVPbuzzChat series, I caught up with long-time friend and former office-mate, Microsoft RD and newly-minted Office Apps & Services MVP Joel Oleson (@joeloleson). Joel has the distinction of being the very first SharePoint admin while working for Microsoft IT (back when it was called Tahoe), and is close to his goal of having visited every country on the planet — and leading SharePoint Saturday and other user group activities in many of them. Joel and I shared an office for a while at Microsoft back in the MMS days (pre-BPOS/O365) before he joined the product team.

In this episode, Joel and I chat about some of the modern technologies that are permeating the enterprise, from blockchain and casual games to SharePoint. We also talk about some of his community efforts as he travels the world, helping kick off SharePoint user groups on every continent (yes, including Antarctica).

If you would like to learn more about Joel or get in touch with him, you can find him on TwitterLinkedIn, on his blog at https://collabshow.com/, or follow his travels at https://travelingepic.com/
