In this episode we go into the minds of the creative design team behind SharePoint. You'll learn about the elegant out-of-the-box experience and how that same rigor enables customers to make unique, beautiful, functional intranet sites. We talk with Denise Trabona, Principal Design Manager, and Omar Shahine, Partner Director of Program Management for OneDrive and SharePoint.

And don't miss Mark's Transylvanian impression of Billy Crystal… (he tried – he really did).
