What is a BIWUG session?

BIWUG is the Belgian Information Worker User Group and its aim is to gather all the people that have an interest in Microsoft Information Worker products & technologies (such as SharePoint)  that influence the activities of the information worker. This community gathers regularly to share experiences, opinions and catch up with the latest development of those products & technologies. Every month, another Office 365 / SharePoint / Azure partner gets to host the event, covering different topics. For the first time as SII Belgium, we will be hosting the next BIWUG session!
