Today I decided to start publishing such tips as I can. I no longer work for DoD so it's not quite so important to obfuscate what I'm doing. :) Anyway, these days I'm working on building SharePoint solutions on-prem, soon to be on SharePoint Online. I've discovered Yammer as well, which seems to me to be what we've been looking for for years. What was ......
