FULL DAY WORKSHOPS

Mastering the SharePoint Framework – andrew connell

 The new way Microsoft wants us to customize and extend SharePoint is to use the SharePoint Framework. This model brings client-side development as a first class development model complete with packaging, deployment and real a full deployment lifecycle. But this model is very different from from what traditional SharePoint developers have been used to. In this workshop you will learn what the SharePoint Framework is all about, what is involved in getting your environment setup to be productive and how to build custom components including client-side web parts and extensions. We will go from using no web frameworks to leveraging React, Angular, Vue.js, leveraging external services, performance tricks… you name it! This workshop is based on AC’s popular Mastering the SharePoint Framework online course… hey, if you register you’ll get a special deal on the course. By the end of the day, you will be well on your way to being a SharePoint Framework Master!

the azure amusement park – seb matthews

Azure is like DisneyWorld. plenty to see, plenty to do but where (oh where?) do you start and what can you expect to see?

For SharePoint, there is lot on offer in Azure to make SharePoint more effective, more efficient and more productive than ever before.

In this new for 2018 workshop, renowned speaker and consultant Seb Matthews will walk you through the ride of your life to help you get the most out of (and have the most fun with) Azure and how it can improve your experience with SharePoint.

Split into two distinct sessions, the workshop will journey through:

AzureLand – what’s hot and what’s not in Azure.

What is Azure, really? Why should you care about Azure and SharePoint? What’s in it for you? Looking at the facets of Azure and those that are useful for SharePoint the first session will take you on a ride through the in and out of Azure and why it matters for SharePoint. Focused largely on the infrastructure of Azure, the session will arm and empower you with an understanding of how you can really leverage the scaffolding of Azure to build and improve SharePoint.

SharePointLand – how to leverage Azure to improve your SharePoint world. Azure is not just virtual machines. Sure, to build out SharePoint in Azure, virtual machines really do matter, but there’s more. How do other Azure pieces fit into the SharePoint picture?

Logic Apps, Azure SQL and Azure Roles all provide opportunities within SharePoint. Oh, and let’s not forget this thing called Office 365. Is it more than just SharePoint farms (and some other stuff) in Microsoft’s datacenters? It sure is.

Fast paced, based in the real-world and born out of experiences working with some of Microsoft’s largest customers, this workshop will set you up with everything you need to get the most out of SharePoint and Azure.
