Office Mechanics is expanding to become Microsoft Mechanics

The show that brought you the latest in Office from the engineers behind the tech is expanding to cover the breadth of Microsoft technologies. Today marks the launch of Microsoft Mechanics, our official new show and video platform for tech enthusiasts and IT professionals.

Beyond Office topics, we’ll begin covering the latest tech from the Azure, Windows and Surface teams with the same demo-packed 10-minute shows from the engineers and experts. We started on this journey at Ignite last May, when Ignite Studio shared the stage with teams across Microsoft.

So you might be wondering if there will be less emphasis on Office now that we’re expanding scope. Actually, we’re doing more with Office than ever before and we recently even launched the Demo Bench, a 2–3 minute demonstration format typically delivered straight from the Microsoft engineers. We’ve already published more than a dozen of these in September alone, covering Office 2016, Exchange Server 2016 and OneDrive for Business updates. And there are many more to come, in addition to the longer Office-specific shows. The Office Blog and our dedicated Microsoft Mechanics site remains the home for all Microsoft Mechanics shows related to Office, Exchange, SharePoint, Skype and the breadth of Office 365 tools and technologies.

Stay informed, follow us on Twitter and take part in our launch sweepstakes or subscribe to Microsoft Mechanics today. As always, let us know of additional topics that you’d like us to cover via our Office 365 Network Yammer group. Some of our best show ideas have come from the community—like the PowerShell, Power BI and Lotus F1 Team shows, among others.

See you next week for the first Microsoft Mechanics show!
