Three short Visio 2016 video tutorials

I recently created three short videos for Microsoft about the most popular uses of Visio, and utilizing some of the latest features:

  • How to create an Org Chart
  • How to create a Process Flow Diagram
  • Creating a Network Chart

They are all less than 5 minutes long, and you don’t see me fortunately.

Things that Should be Easy

Every so often (too often in the IT industry) I encounter things that should have been very easy to do but turned out to be far too complicated. My favorite topics include SharePoint, .Net development, and software architecture, especially distributed systems.
