Getting started on Office 365? start from the start...

Office 365, make the bold move, stop trying to do what you've always done in the same ways and expecting a different outcome.

It's about doing things in a new way, a better way, a more productive way - and obviously all in the cloud. So if you can do things right in the browser, from any device, that should be your initial, preferred way. yes, desktop app, rich clients apps you will need, but only for more complex tasks. So explore the power of the cloud model from the browser.

Have a look at some of these, re-vamped getting started page to get your head around working with email, calendars, tasks and documents on Office 365 in the Web Apps.

Office 365 brings prodcutivity to a new level

Melbourne Business Users Group - MBUG

Modern Apps and Modern User Experiences

You are invited to the first Mbug for 2014. We will be joined by two talented speakers who will share with you how to get modern and design a user experience that users will love.
Building Modern Applications with SharePoint & Windows 8
Shailen Sukul Senior Consultant at Readify will demonstrate SharePoint apps interacting with Windows 8 and show the immersive experience across devices.
Balancing user experience with an out-of-the-box design in SharePoint 2013
Having a great user experience is an success factor for any intranet. To ensure success with their intranet redevelopment Melbourne Water has included usability testing throughout the development of their SharePoint 2013 intranet. What they found was that what their staff thought was a good user experience was at times in conflict with maintaining as much of the out-of-the-box functionality as possible. Rebecca Jackson will discuss their approach to user experience testing, findings from the sessions and their approach to getting a balance
