The SharePoint Conference 2019

Regsiter Here to $50 on your registration.

This is the time of year where people look on the previous year and decide how to proceed the with the upcoming year. This is also time for new fiscal years for many organizations and this brings fresh training budgets with it. The combination of these two situations make it an ideal time to set some training goals for the next year. There are many different options to choose from when it comes to ways to use training budgets. From individual training sessions to larger conferences. If you are looking for a conference where Microsoft is present and where the content is presented by Microsoft employees and MVPs the options are little more limited. Microsoft is heavily involved with only two conferences, Microsoft Ignite and the SharePoint Conference. Microsoft has setup a rather nice cadence with these two conferences. At one conference, Microsoft will announce what they have been working on and at the next conference we will most likely have most of the features that were announced or at least get a status update on them. Before the SharePoint Conference came back Microsoft put on an event to do the announcements. This is still part of the SharePoint Conference and is usually live streamed. In addition to this there are three days of general conference sessions and two days of workshops. These sessions and workshops will be provided by Microsoft employees with intimate knowledge about the products and by MVPs and RDs with real world knowledge and experience. This provides plenty of opportunities for specialized learning that meets your needs.

DEV 203 – SharePoint 2013 and AngularJS Lessons Learned from the Trenches

Thanks to SharePoint 2013 it is a lot easier to be able to create client based solutions. AngularJS is one of the solutions out there that allows developers to create applications very quickly through an MVC implementation.

In this session we will go over the basics of AngularJS in regards to apps, controllers, services, and views. We will create a simple application built entirely through client technologies and in SharePoint. The principles learned here can be used anywhere in SharePoint whether it is a Farm Solution in an on-premise environment or in an app on Office 365.

Come learn a lot of the pitfalls to avoid and some best practices that will help you love AngularJS as another tool in a developers tool belt.

SIA 105 – PowerShell to the Rescue, For Developers and Admins

As a developer PowerShell was one of those tools that had to be used to deploy things to SharePoint, but it is so much more. PowerShell allows the easy creation of simple or complex scripts to accomplish so many things. PowerShell can even be used to manage your SharePoint environment remotely.

In this session we will cover the basics of PowerShell and then we will dive into some concepts that will be beneficial for anyone that works with the SharePoint backend. We will cover how to use PowerShell to automate both on premise and Office 365 SharePoint environments.
