Teams Nation Community Conference May 2021

Teams Nation is a new free community based digital event that focuses on Microsoft Teams and its essential tools. The community is based in Helsinki, Finland, and has now over 250 members, who are very diverse in their field of expertise. Some of the members are technicians, engineers, architects, adoption specialists, developers, or just people curious about technologies and software. Here you can read more about Teams Nation and its organizers.

This year Teams Nation Community Conference took place on May 12. It was divided into 11 tracks with sessions dedicated to different topics, such as productivity, meetings and calls, education, the Power Platform, as well as country-specific rooms with sessions in German and French.

The event was stretched out throughout the whole day, because some of the participants and speakers were joining from different parts of the world.
