SharePoint Fest Chicago 2017

[UPDATE]
I had a great time spending my week with the attendees at SharePoint Fest Chicago! The #SPFest team always does a good job organizing the events and this time was no different.

I had a great group of attendees who filled the room during my Thursday session.

The group had questions galore and it was great to see the excitement of using on-prem data with the cloud tools. My slides are available to attendees via the event app.

Here are some questions and the links I have so far to provide answers to questions that were asked during the session:

Microsoft Flow Known Issues and Resolutions

Can you somehow monitor the Azure Service Bus for requests that are in wait?

What are the feature comparisons of SSRS vs. Power BI? What are the scenarios where you would use one vs. the other?

I will be speaking at SharePoint Fest Chicago this year and I can’t wait to get back to the Windy City!

My presentation, Use Your On-premises Data with PowerApps, Power BI, and Microsoft Flow, is all about how you can use your organization’s data with cloud tools. We will setup a data gateway, connect to on-premises data sources, and discuss how to use that data in Office 365 to create rich business solutions.

I am really looking forward to attending several sessions, including the keynote by Dan Holme [Twitter], Director of Product Marketing (SharePoint & Yammer) Microsoft – Accelerating your digital transformation with SharePoint and Microsoft 365. Dan will be sharing with us which tool to use when” and “where to share” – which should be a really good conversation!

 

 

 

SharePoint Fest Seattle 2017

I am once again happy to announce I will be speaking at SharePoint Fest – this time in Seattle on August 10th and 11th.

My first presentation will be Transition Your SharePoint Designer Workflows to Microsoft Flow on August 10th – with SharePoint Designer being deprecated, what are you supposed to do with your existing workflows? We will discuss how to transition your workflows to Microsoft Flow so you can begin to gain the benefits of the ever-expanding service.

On August 11th, I will present Business Intelligence Using SharePoint and Power BI – we will discuss all the Business Intelligence options we get out of the box with SharePoint and then look at how Power BI can rock your SharePoint BI implementation!

SharePoint Fest Chicago

I will be speaking in Chicago during SharePoint Fest this year. The conference runs from December 6th – 9th, 2016 and I will be presenting “Building Future-proof SharePoint Solutions with No Code”. We will focus on building meaningful solutions using out of the box features and staying away from anything that looks like code 😉

If you are in Chicago, please stop by and say hi!

[Update]
SPFest had great attendance this year and the attendees in my session were really engaged.
