Thanks to all of the attendees that attended my sessions.  Here is the supporting content.

SPS Atlanta Sessions on Search and Social

I’m excited to announce that I have had two sessions selected for the SPS Atlanta event on Saturday June 8th.  The past few years the organizers have established this event as one of the premiere events in the south east.

The first session is an End User focused session titled Using Search for Dynamic Content.

This session is geared towards site owners and power users and will provide an overview of the search web parts available out of the box in SharePoint 2010 and 2013 and show how they can be used to display dynamic, search driven content on your sites.  We will also do an overview of the Keyword Query Language allowing you to leverage the features to display dynamic content on your sites.

 

The second session is a Developer focused session titled Introduction to SharePoint’s Social APIs

SharePoint 2010 and 2013 offers a rich set of social capabilities that are built into the platform.  Those capabilities are available to developers through a variety of APIs so that they can be extended or leveraged in your other customizations and applications.  This session will run through the various client, server, and REST APIs available to developers.

 

Hope to see a full house!

SPSEvents NYC and Social API Presentation

I’m excited to announce that my session Introduction to SharePoint’s Social APIs has been selected for the SPS Events NYC event on Saturday July 27th.  This has been a fantastic event the past few years, and I’m sure this year will be no different. 

Here is the abstract for my session:

SharePoint 2010 and 2013 offers a rich set of social capabilities that are built into the platform.  Those capabilities are available to developers through a variety of APIs so that they can be extended or leveraged in your other customizations and applications.  This session will run through the various client, server, and REST APIs available to developers.

 

We will take a close look at the APIs themselves, work through a couple of common and not so common example of leveraging those APIs, and then talk about things like performance and best practices.

SharePoint Saturday Tampa Wrap-up

SharePoint Saturday Tampa was a lot of fun, and there were a lot of great attendees there soaking up the SharePoint goodness.  A big thanks to the organizers, sponsors and volunteers that made this happen.

I also hope that everyone that attended my Planning for the User Profiles session got a lot out of it.  Here is a link to the slides.  Getting the Most from SharePoint’s User Profiles

 

During the event I had a number of good conversations with people on how the User Profiles (and MySites) are being used, and where they are facing some challenges.  I have a few ideas I expect to put into a blog post soon so stay tuned for that if you are interested.

Shared Link: SharePoint 2010 Social Networking Diagram

I do not often link to another blog post as part of one on my site, but this one was too good to pass up.  For those of you interested in SharePoint 2010’s Social Features, here is  great diagram of of how all of the components and services fit together.  It is extremely valuable to understand this information when you embark on an implementation or need to troubleshoot why something is not behaving as expected.
