As you may know SharePointVN.NET is one of my spiritual children I have taken care of for the last few years. For those who may not know, SharePointVN.NET is a free publisher that provides people in Vietnam over 500 online articles related to the Microsoft SharePoint platform. One of the most outstanding contributions to the community was the release of SharePoint e-magazine that was made by many senior SharePoint experts working in Vietnam, including specialists from Microsoft Vietnam. The team who built SharePointVN.NET also cooperated with some community leaders to successfully run the first Vietnam SharePoint User Group event last year, and a series of SharePoint Saturday Vietnam. All of things along with goodwill are sent to the community without profit. That’s all of my interest for the community so far.

You may know Office 365 has recently been out to be purchased officially in Vietnam so lots of people are seriously paying attention to it thanks to the price that looks quite reasonable for the Vietnam market. I have been asked by folks if there is an extremely helpful website like SharePointVN.NET for Microsoft Office 365. This question apparently catches my attention to having a website that provides Vietnamese articles related to Office 365. I called some geeks who with me built a few successful communities such as SharePointVN.NET, ICT24H.NET, Microsoft ITPros to start building Office 365 community. We all finally have made the decision on the name of the website: office365vn.net.

Our ultimate goal is to provide people who want to learn about Microsoft Office 365 step-by-step articles, news, and series including SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, Lync Online and general administrative tasks in Office 365. Readers will definitively have full access to all content in Office365vn.net without fee.

Our future expectation is to organize Office 365 events like the ones we have done such as ICT24H Workshop, SharePoint Saturday Vietnam, Vietnam SharePoint User Group. At the end of the day, things are being planned. I will keep you updated.

In terms of the website’s UI, we are in the process of adding some more features to provide a better navigation and search. If you would like to contribute for Office365vn.net, please feel free to contact me at thuan[at]outlook.com
