First User Group in Munich – with live streaming to google hangout – pretty cool stuff!
Session 1: Migrations and their pitfalls
First session by Dennis Hobmaier (@DHobmaier) about SharePoint migrations.
Key take-aways: templates, custom-code, permissions, workflows are the main causes of trouble – thats new 😉
Session 2: Offerings for the SharePoint Community in Germany – or how to create a podcast
Michael Greth (@mysharepoint) showed us the various offerings for the large SharePoint Community in Germany (there are around 30 User Groups):
SharePoint Special Deals
SharePoint Community Calendar
SharePoint Podcasts (appears biweekly in German)
In the second part Michael showed us his audio equipment and how simple it is to record a podcast – impressive!
That session was good fun, very entertaining!
Session 3: Sharepoint with Sql Server 2012 Always On
Last but not least a session by Mario Spies (AvePoint) about SQL high availability.
Always On Failover Cluster: One (idle) failover cluster with shared storage – if your storage dies, your SharePoint is very sad…
Always On Availability Groups: Basically a mirror, up to 1:4 mirroring.
Then Mario showed a live demo with failover – nice one! Learned a lot, thanks!
