Hello hello, MTC, and Happy almost-Halloween! Let’s take a look at what’s been happening in the MTC this week…
MTC Moments of the Week
Our MTC Member of the Week shoutout this week goes to @Steven Collier, a Microsoft MVP and 4-year member of the MTC. Thank you for the invaluable assistance in the Teams community this week, Steven!
This week was jam-packed with four days of demos, deep dives, and live Ask Microsoft Anything (AMA) sessions as part of our Microsoft Technical Takeoff with Windows and Microsoft Intune! We had a broad group of product experts, servicing experts, and engineers representing Windows, Microsoft Intune, Configuration Manager, security, public sector, FastTrack, and more. You can catch up on all of the events, and, for your continued questions, join us every third Thursday for Windows Office Hours here on the Tech Community!
Over on the blogs this week, BizApps MVP @CarinaMClaesson talked with M365 Apps & Services MVP @Amanda_Sterner about her journey to Ignite 2022 and about what it’s like attending the event as an expert and hosting a session.

For today’s fun fact…since Monday is All Hallow’s Eve… did you know that jack o’lanterns – the carved pumpkin faces we often associate with Halloween – are inspired by an old Irish folk tale?
The tale is about a man called Stingy Jack who tricked the devil and was punished to roam the earth for eternity with only a burning coal in a hollowed turnip to light his way. The Irish began to call him "Jack of the Lantern," and then just "Jack o'Lantern", and they carved their own versions of Jack’s lanterns into turnips and potatoes to place in their windows to frighten Jack and other evil spirits away.
Have a great weekend, everyone!
