My notes: SharePoint Saturday Munich 2017 #SPSMUC

04 Mar 2017
March 4, 2017

So this was my inaugural SharePoint Saturday in my hometown Munich – the last time I couldn’t attend – and now I am fully thrilled to be part of the greatest and latest SharePoint community event in Munich – and maybe even in Germany.

Hosted directly in the Microsoft headquarter in Munich (awesome office!) – with more than 400 attendees this will be fun!

1/4 of the agenda – right next to each session room.

My agenda and some brief notes are below – the full agenda and the list of awesome speakers is here.

#SPSMUC00: Keynote: SharePoint Futures – Field and Engineering Perspective – Aligned or Different?

with Eric Shupps(@eshupps) and Veza Juvonen (@vesajuvonen)

I was not in the same room as the two speakers because of room capacities – and I watched (better listened) to the keynote that has been broadcasted to two other rooms. It was a different experience for me because it was hard to follow some of the jokes without seeing what is going on the stage – but it was still fun 🙂

It almost felt like Veza and Eric did a good cop, bad cop theme what is good and bad about SharePoint and Office 365 as of now – there is lot to come, many internal changes of how things will be

#SPSMUC01: The key to a successful Office 365 implementation is adoption

by Jasper Osterveld(@jasoosterveld)

Adoption is key! Jasper gave some really great tips that will definitely be considered in my company for my customers! The room was quite packed, more than 75 people in the room – awesome!

Launch card, launch video and launch party: Well, that’s a cool starting point to promote the new technology, the options and possibilities – what sounds easy for all of us, might not be for some others. So be honest about what the new tech can do for you and be integrative.

Well, what could be worse of a great portal and nobody uses it, right? So I will keep lots of those tips and tricks in mind!

Office 365 adoption session – very fun to watch!

#SPSMUC03: Pushing the Boundaries – A Deep-Dive into Real-World SharePoint Add-In

by Eric Shupps(@eshupps)

Eric shared a lot of his experiences with apps – from expiring tokens, to expiring apps – and where can host your apps. All those options come with different possibilities (!!!) , but great overview to get started.

Apps on Azure

Provider Hosted Apps

You don’t control the costs

Well, that quote is perfectly describing the situation of many devs – I had a customer project that was stuck for months because nobody was able to create a Azure SQL database (4€/month!) because nobody was defined to provision and in the end pay for the database…

Eric showed a nice demo from Office PnP about throttling and REST – cool stuff, need to check it.

Another one: Think and play through the removal of your app – there are some missing pieces.

If you don’t wanna sleep at night – build your own provisioning engine!

Apparently there was no applause for that brilliant quote – but he is sooooooo right!

Cool stuff – great session – Eric can definitely talk faster than I can take notes 🙂

#SPSMUC22: SharePoint Patching demystified

by Stefan Goßner (@stefan_gossner)

Whops, I missed that one because I talk too much – hopefully I find his slides online to get demystified, too!

#SPSMUC13: Level up with PowerApps and Microsoft Flow

by Mikael Svenson (@mikaelsvenson)

PowerApps – I absolutely love what I am seeing. Responsive, fast, slick design – the future of business forms is bright. For Power Users it could be tricky tho build everything that Mikael showed us. Even tho Mikael made building cascading drop down look easy!

Autocomplete for the control bindings, every InfoPath dev or PowerUser would love that – but lets focus on the future, right?

 

PowerApps and Flow – Mikael in action!

Full house!

Rename all the controls!

I see a lot of interesting projects that will use that in the future – SharePoint as business platform sounds familiar, right? Mikael’s slides are already available here.

Good session, I had good fun!

#SPSMUC17: Implementing SharePoint hybrid search, start to finish

by Thomas Vochten (@ThomasVochten)

Search Search Search – I just cant get enough of it. I gave a similar talk in Brussels last year, but its of course totally interesting how Thomas presents that topic, whats important for him and then of course “steal” all the good parts 🙂

Thomas gave a very concise overview of the search architecture and the options – and then compared the functionality of the past with all we get by using hybrid search: unified index, ranking, refiners and unify everything from remote repositories to one index. Awesome! If you want to check all the tiny details, check this post.

 

Legacy outbound hybrid

eDiscovery and Compliance benefit of the hybrid search (cool) – and a big chapter about security especially security trimming.

And a neat display template to visualize that the search result sits onPrem – awesome!

And then there was a nice live demo of configuring hybrid search on stage – I crossed my fingers – and everything worked! Cool stuff.

Good session by Thomas – thanks!

Summary

Top session, top speakers, super professional and awesome organization, free community event and full house – how could you top that? Even the weather was perfect! I enjoyed all the sessions, learned a bit here and there – and had many good chats with old friends, new friends and vendors!

Kudos to Matthias Einig (@mattein) , the team of Rencore and all the awesome sponsors for making this happening!

And now, let’s SharePint!

An Overview of the Microsoft Application Platform for Developers

27 Sep 2016
September 27, 2016

Watch out, I am attending a developer session! Mainly because Scott Hanselman is the speaker and I totally love his style. Developers!

wp_20160926_11_17_42_rich

This session will give us a broad overview of all the new things for devs – so we start with the current options of Visual Studio:

12.7 Mio downloads of Visual Studio
2 Mio Visual Studio Code
4 Mio users of Visual Studio Team Services

wp_20160926_11_18_17_rich

Developers are important! Developers, Developers, Developers!

Cloud is connecting everything!

Demo 1: Modernization

Porting sounds boring, modernization is a cooler word for it.

Transition from .NET Framework 2, 3, 4 to .NET Core – Visual Studio support all of them.

First demo on a Mac, running the CLI to create projects, restore packages – awesome.

wp_20160926_11_26_47_rich

Demo 2: Visual Studio 2015 and future improvements

Run with multiple browser. Browser link now syncs scrolling and user inputs across browsers – that is cool.

Demo 3: Containers

Docker is confusing for most enterprises, but with the windows version it is much easier to run. Even integrated in Visual Studio into the “run with” dialog. The solution is then built and put into a docker image – even with debugging support.

Demo 4: Azure Integration

Staging slots – run copies of your website in parallel and switch them back and forth into production aka. hot swaps. Then he shows “testing in production” where you can load balance e.g. 25% of all the traffic will be directed to staging instead of production. You can even automate that with powershell, eg. send them to staging, check for errors and in that case send them back to production. What could go wrong?!

Because so many viewers accessed Scott’s public website, he did a live scale out with the push of a button. Awesome.

Demo 5: Portable Code and native apps

Scott shows another demo were 90% of his code is in a portable class library. The rest of the code is device specific and stored in separate projects for IOS, Androws, Windows Phone or UWP. Live debug run on an iPhone simulator running iOS 10.

Demo 6: Xamarin Test Cloud

Testing your app on multiple devices is effortless with Xamarin test cloud, you get memory consumption, error logs, videos of your tests – crazy stuff.

wp_20160926_11_53_05_rich

The explosion is a test run on a Galaxy Note 7

Demo 7: SharePoint Online

Scott show a document stored on SharePoint (!!!). Once the document is saved it will trigger an Azure Function app (server-less code) to notify clients that the document has changed. Automate the processes here is the main point.

wp_20160926_11_55_21_rich

Demo 8: Azure Functions & Azure Cognitive Services

Drop an image to Azure blog storage, it gets processed by the azure function, sent to Azure Cognitive Service and alter the image to detect emotions.

wp_20160926_12_15_13_rich

Demo 9: Visual Studio Installer

Goal is to create a new installing experience with reduced installation time.

Demo 10: Desktop App Converter

Brief introduction how to convert an existing application to a windows 10 store apps.

Summary

Scott presented so fast and friction-less, it is tough to capture 10% in this post. Developer’s life is so much more fun right now.
This session was super enlightening, go watch it once its online!
