Best (and Worst) Practices in JavaScript for SharePoint/O365 Developers
Level: 300
Track: Developer
Like it or not, if you are going to develop solutions for SharePoint and O365, you will use JavaScript. Previously JavaScript was the duct tape for SharePoint developers, fixing things that were difficult to fix otherwise, but it was hardly the recommended way.

That has changed and now it is vital to understand the JavaScript pitfalls in order to avoid them. This session gives you solid advice from real life projects and leaves you armed with set of good practices as well as knowledge of practices to avoid.

Beyond the Hype: Manage, Govern, and Reduce Risk of Microsoft Office 365
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro
Cloud computing has firmly cemented itself as a viable option for hosting and managing your Microsoft SharePoint content. Now that your business has made the decision to incorporate cloud computing into your enterprise collaboration initiative, how does this affect your governance and management strategies? As cloud providers typically limit the amount of control we have over our enterprise data and applications depending on the subscription model, we'll have to revisit how management controls are implemented and maintained. In this session, we'll review strategies and tools for ensuring your cloud-hosted SharePoint, Exchange, Lync, and OneDrive content remains protected and well-managed. Attendees will walk away understanding best practices, strategies, and tools for managing and protecting cloud-hosted users and content, ensuring you remain in compliance with your governance policies – no matter where your content resides.
• Review top use cases for incorporating the cloud into your enterprise architecture and the management requirements associated with each
• Review potential limitations of management solutions and strategies depending on the cloud provider and service
• Understand best practices, strategies, and tools to ensure your cloud-hosted content and users remains protected and well-managed

Enterprise Social: Where are we now and where are we going?
Level: 100
Track: End-User, Business
Microsoft double downed in the Enterprise Social business since the acquisition of Yammer in the summer of 2012. The acquisition was necessary due to the lacking Enterprise Social features within SharePoint and the rise of Social media. Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn were adopted by millions of people and businesses became eager to implement the Social media features within their own enterprise. A lot has changed since that summer of 2012 and Yammer isn't the only Enterprise Social service for SharePoint and Office 365. During this presentation Jasper Oosterveld (Office 365 MVP) is going to explain the current state of Enterprise Social within SharePoint and Office 365. We are going to look at the latest Enterprise Social services such as Yammer, Office 365 Groups, Delve and the Video Portal.

The presentation covers the following topics:

     The journey of Yammer from 2012 until present day
     New wave of Enterprise Social features
     Roadmap for Enterprise Social

The key take away points are:

     Gain insight in the current state of Enterprise Social for SharePoint and Office 365
     Learn about the future Enterprise Social developments for businesses worldwide
