What’s new with Office 365

The Office 2016 launch in September was followed by a steady stream of improvements in October. The Skype for Business iOS app is here, and the preview of the new Skype for Business voice and meeting capabilities is now more widely available. FastTrack evolved from an onboarding service to a customer success service to help you realize business value faster with the Microsoft Cloud. Compliance updates include enhanced service organization controls (SOC) audit reports and the launch of local datacenters in India. OneNote inking is better than ever, Sway and Office Lens got enhancements and mobile updates, and the new Office was updated as well.

Boosting the ranks of blacks in tech

Here's an article about some technology groups popping up in the Chicago area.

Support our black businesses!!



If you think there aren't many female tech entrepreneurs and coders, there are far fewer African-Americans.

In the heart of Silicon Valley, giants such as Google and Facebook report about 1 percent of their tech staffs are African-American. Apple tops the list at 7 percent of its tech staff. By contrast, the same companies report 15 percent to 22 percent women in technology jobs. (Hispanics are about 3 percent.) 

But Dominic Liddell, Thomas Stovall and Fabian Elliott are trying to improve the odds in Chicago.

Writers Welcome!

 writers welcome

Where are all the African American writers? I'm looking for volunteers who like to write. I'm a Knowledge Manager, so I spend a lot of time and energy doing technical writing. And you can see the technical writing on our web sites too (blacksgonegeek.com, blacksgonegeek.org). But I'm getting tired of the "ho hum" articles I see in social media today. You know what I'm talking about. The 10 best ways to do this. The 5 best ways to do that. Where are all the meaningful messages that used to light up the air waves? Are you ready for your 15 minutes of fame?

Everybody is going digital, even my CIO magazine. And what happened to Diversity/Careers in Engineering & Information Technology? Has anybody checked out Kate Colborn's new magazine, Diversity in Action? Rosie Perez is on the cover, but I hardly recognized her. Does anybody remember Tina in "Do the Right Thing". I digress!

Seriously, if you have the gift of gab and you want to help us write about technology, let me know. We're starting off with some "about us" pages and taking it from there.

Oh, and before I forget. If you are an entrepreneur or an intrapreneur interested in pursuing a career or a business in Office 365 or SharePoint consulting, please let me know. We started our incubator and we're partnering with zip.kiva.org to offer 0% interest loans to our Jr. Consultants.

Have a blessed day!

Be Happy - Happiness Course

To: BGG Community

Now that I'm an empty nester I get a chance to pursue some topics just for fun. It's not all about the geek stuff anymore! LOL.

I sent out a blog post a couple of months ago on a few books on happiness I recently read and liked. Now I tripped over a free course on happiness and positive psychology that take the happiness theme to a whole new level. This is exciting stuff!

Here's the link to my blog post.

Here's a blurb on the online course info. We're starting up a study group too.

==
Please check out this course. The first online class is on Tuesday. I’m looking for somebody to take it with. It’s free!
GG101x The Science of Happiness

If I get enough interest (we need 10-15 people to start), we can form an online study group. See description below.

Happy Geeks are students interested in promoting their careers in technology. Looking for a job in technology is like riding an emotional roller coaster, it's full of ups and downs. One day you feel hopeful and the next day you receive a rejection letter and you hopes are dashed to the ground. We want to learn and practice positive psychology tools and techniques to live a happy and meaningful life. We meet virtually every Thursday evening at 8pm central time. Anyone with an interest in technology careers is welcome to join.

Apple Music Hits Home

dr. dre and jimmy iovine at usc $70 million donation 
Thanks to Jimmy Iovine and Dr. Dre at Apple Music, my music collection just took a big nose dive in value. I'm 62 and starting in my teens, I was always the one building a music collection. I love listening to music and I used to take a battered portable turntable to school and play hit tunes on the back of the CTA bus. Me and my teen aged buddies used to have the whole bus rocking and rolling. This was before the boom box and Walkman era. That was old school.

Does anybody remember Iron Butterfly - In a Gadda Da Vida ? Now you can watch it on YouTube for free (9,708,577 views), but I digress.

I eventually lost my 45's and albums in a fire and after shedding a few tears, I had to eventually move with technology to tape. Yeah, I admit it, for a short time I even had an 8 track collection and then it morphed to cassette tape. That's when I thought I hit a gold mine. I would carry a bag of tapes around with me and pop them into my car or boom box and once again enjoy my music collection wherever I went.

But then CD's came out and my cassette tapes were history. Why wait for a tape to rewind or to memorize the tape location for your favorite song when you could bounce through the tracks of a CD. So here I am again thinking I hit a gold mine AGAIN. I could carry more CD's around than tape and pop them into my newly acquired collection of portable devices. 

And that's when my first iPod killed all of that. I couldn't fathom the possibilities of carrying around my music collection on a little device but as I went from a 2 gig to a 4 gig and eventually to an 80 gig, I hit pay dirt! As long as I had my iPod I could play any song I purchased. Nirvana struck. I was in seventh heaven! Silly me..

And as I aged and kept looking at the stacks of cassettes and CDs in my basement I started to think, who could use them when I'm gone. Who do you give your music collection to? I have CDs that I never bothered to load onto the computer. And I have music I purchased on the computer that no one will ever find. Who wants it? Who needs it? 

My 18 year old daughter hipped me to Apple Music last week. She asked, why would you buy music and download it when you can play any music at anytime for $15 a month? I stood with my mouth open as my chin dropped to the floor and quipped an IDK (LOL).

So now it's finally sinking in. When I want to hear any music from any artist, I don't have to listen to a 60 second sample and buy a track and download it on my iPod and carry it around. I can "rent it" and pull it up on my iPhone right away. And with Bluetooth I can connect into my cars, beats pill speakers, PCs and other devices. And with Apple AAC encoding, the music sounds great!

So I surrender, yet again to the advance of technology. I'm going full digital in the cloud. We bought a family plan so we can all share the same music library on any device. And eventually I'm going to shit can my music collection and any hopes it has some value I can pass on to the next generation. RIP Foxy Brown, Missy Elliott and G Unit. With Apple Music my daughters just got access to more music than I could ever dream of collecting and passing down.

Thanks Jimmy. Thanks Dr. Dre. I'm lovin' it!!

YourCompleteOffice in the Cloud.png

Microsoft Office 365 is a cloud-based service hosted by Microsoft that brings together familiar Microsoft Office desktop applications with business-class email, shared calendars, instant messaging (IM), video conferencing, and file sharing. I like it because you can build a company website with easy-to-use templates. You can manage your website without IT staff because of the easy-to-use web-based content management system.

Office 365 comes in many shapes and sizes which can be very confusing when you're trying to decide which product works best for you. So we’re hosting a webinar to explain how you can use Office 365 to promote you and your business.

Threat Modeling a SharePoint Application

Threat Modeling a SharePoint Application: An exploratory exercise in preventing data breaches and theft

By Tony Graves SharePoint Developer and Consultant​


Threat Modeling Book Cover.jpg 

Threat modeling is about using models to find security problems. Using a model means abstracting away a lot of details to provide a look at a bigger picture, rather than the code itself. You model because it enables you to find issues in things you haven’t built yet, and because it enables you to catch a problem before it starts.

Threat Modeling can be applied to software you’re building or deploying, or software you’re considering acquiring. Building a SharePoint Solution or website is no different. Here is a brief guide on how to build a minimum threshold for your organization in a SharePoint environment.

Not all content holds the same value for an organization. Some content is transitory and will only provide value for a short time, while other content serves as official records, preserving evidence for a transaction or decision making tool such as eDiscovery.

Based on the book, "Threat Modeling: Designing for Security" the only security book to be chosen as a Dr. Dobbs Jolt Award Finalist since Bruce Schneier's Secrets and Lies and Applied Cryptography!

Unconventional Strategies for Reinventing Your Career

 Working Identity
Do you want to jump start your career? This book is a must read!

This book explores how career transitions are not a linear progression of steps taken to achieve the desired change. Instead it is a series of incremental beeline changes one brings into action by self intuition, risk taking and deep reflection.

The author explores the idea of Identities in transition – the idea is summed up as follows:

“We like to think that we can leap directly from desire for change to a single decision that will complete our reinvention. As a result, we remain na├»ve about the long, essential testing period when our actions transform or (fail to transform) fuzzy, undefined possibilities into concrete choices we can evaluate.”
