Session by Rolando Jimenez
Build a new class of apps that extend and personalize the way we create and consume information right from within Office…
- More than 700.000 SharePoint Developers.
- Cloud is the focus (surprise)
2nd demo in Excel: Again visualization, this time it’s a country visualization. Additionally he pulled data from WolframAlpha into excel, the last one is very cool for natural queries. He added the population of a given country from one column into another column – good stuff!
3rd demo: Rolando showed AvePoint Meetings – apparently the first time it did not work – but generally the idea behind it is simple and very cool.
SharePoint 2007 = Full trust solutions (powerful but potentially dangerous)
SharePoint 2010 = Sandboxed solutions (too limited, restricted) and client side applications
SharePoint 2013 = Apps, Apps, Apps
Next demos where in Visual Studio – Rolando showed how to create data in lists and libraries, create Tasks and the usual stuff. Then he showed how to create a Windows Phone App to connect to SharePoint.
Outook App: The integration is very cool. Outlook recognized that there is related content in SharePoint and showed the corresponding Task from.
So many demos and impressions – I definitely see potential here. Memo to myself: Spent more time with it.
