I’m excited to announce I’ll be presenting again at the MS SharePoint Conference 2014 in March next year! It’s a great privilege to be selected to present at the conference and I’m really looking forward to it again. Here’s the sessions I will be presenting at the show. I hope to see you there!
Creating Internet facing web sites with SharePoint on-premises or in the cloud
In this session you will learn how to create Internet facing web sites with SharePoint 2013 in an on-premises or O365 environment. You will learn how the capabilities differ between the two environments and how to select the appropriate environment based on your requirements. You will also learn how to implement functionality that comes with on-premises SharePoint that is not currently part of the O365 Public Web Site. On premises topics will include WCM, Managed Navigation, Author in Place vs. Authoring / Rendering environments, Cross Site Publishing, Security (Limited-access user permission lock down mode feature), Search and how it relates to the Content By Search Web Part and anonymous users, and multi-lingual sites. O365 topics will include current limitations and workarounds associated with Publishing features, the Content By Search Web Part, and Device Channels. During this session you will learn how the www.whymicrosoft.com web site was built on an O365 Public web site.
Enable new scenarios with Apps for Office
This session will demonstrate how a new class of scenarios and user experiences can be enabled by re-imagining solutions with Apps for Office. In this session you will learn how to make Apps for Office in Word, Excel, and Access, and also how to supplement them with O365 SharePoint web sites, workflow, notifications, Windows Phone 8 apps, notifications, and Azure. During this session you will see an extremely polished end to end demo scenario related to idea generation, qualification, selection, development, and evaluation unfold. You will learn how all the components in the demo are built, what patterns are used to implement them, and have a lot of fun along the way. This session also has a little bit of March Madness flavor baked into it which will provide an entertaining and enlightening experience.
