SharePoint Apps for the IT Pro - What you need to know
Level: 300
Track: IT Pro
By now, every SharePoint IT Pro is probably aware of the fact that Full Trust Code (aka the farm solution) is not cool anymore. We can’t really say that we regret Microsoft’s choice for the new App model: On far too many occasions we had to watch our beloved and carefully nurtured SharePoint farm go down because some developer type messed up big time - “But it works on my machine!” Running code outside of SharePoint that can still interact with content within SharePoint sounds trivial at first but it absolutely isn’t. In this session you’ll learn how App authorization works and how to prepare your infrastructure to host SharePoint apps reliably.

Een hybride scenario met SharePoint Online en SharePoint on-premise wordt steeds aantrekkelijker. Sinds SP1 voor SharePoint 2013 wordt dit weer meer duidelijk met de OneDrive in Office365 optie. In deze sessie worden de mogelijkheden van Hybrid SharePoint Search besproken. Welke keuzes zijn er te maken, wat zijn de voor en nadelen van deze opties. En niet onbelangrijk hoe richt je dat dan in? Deze vragen worden allemaal beantwoord in “The Search for the Cloud”
 
Change Management! - Design Solutions for a SharePoint landscape in flux
Level: 200
Track: Developers
The introduction of SharePoint 2013 turned the development paradigm on its head! This strong push towards decoupled low trust solutions is just the beginning of great change for the platform. With many organizations still using earlier SharePoint versions there's risk of expensive refactoring of legacy solutions when moving to SharePoint 2013 or beyond. This session considers the implications of recent SharePoint changes, and discusses how you can design your solutions to minimize the pain of future upgrades.

Go Social and Share
Level: 100
Track: Business/End User
News. We want our updates on the latest changes every day. Perhaps even every minute. We check our Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn to dive into the latest news on friends, colleagues, companies and what is happening in the world. And during your never ending quest for news, that which you have found and find interesting, you share with everyone else. And between all the funny cat pictures, movies you have watched, conferences you attended, it might be a job opportunity worth something to someone in your network and if not maybe in their network.
This aspect of being social and sharing is not that very different in enterprise business. During this session I would like to take you on that journey that is being social and sharing in the enterprise sanctum.
- Why social is not evil
- Click and Share
- Your and your organizations benefits
 
SharePoint Online: A friend or a foe?
Level: 100
Track: Office 365
This is an important question many customers ask themselves. Microsoft is heavily promoting their Cloud services with SharePoint Online as their showpiece. The SharePoint Online platform did mature over the years and has become a worthy and realistic replacement for SharePoint On-Premises. SharePoint Online offers Intranet and Extranet business solutions and contains the latest SharePoint features. Although this sounds great, many customers aren't sure and hesitant of the Cloud. They really wonder: is SharePoint Online a friend or a foe?

The presentation covers the following:
• A look at the history and evolution of SharePoint Online
• Real world SharePoint Online Intranet Solutions
• An Extranet business scenario with SharePoint Online
• Overcome Cloud challenges such as Governance, Unified User Experience and Hybrid Solutions
• The main differences with SharePoint On-Premises

Subordinate integrity: Certificates for SharePoint 2013
Level: 300
Track: IT Pro
Certificates play an increasingly important role in SharePoint 2013. As well as protecting data, they are one of the fundamental building blocks of service interaction between service applications and across products such as Lync and Exchange. With the introduction of Office Web Apps 2013 and Workflow Manager as well as the Cloud App Model, certificates are now effectively a pre-requisite for a complete SharePoint deployment.
This session will de-mystify which types of certificate are needed, where they are used and how best customers can manage the certificate lifecycle for SharePoint 2013, Office Web Apps and Workflow Manager. Also covered will be client browser considerations and approaches to automating configuration with Windows PowerShell, along with certificate requirements for Office 365.

Leveraging the new Application Model for structured and repeatable deployments
Level: 300
Track: Office365, Developers
With SharePoint 2013 Microsoft released a new application model which is not only the recommended way for building future proof customizations but for leveraging structured and repeatable deployment as well. In this demo-heavy session we will walk through common deployment scenarios and see how they fit into the new application model. In this session you will learn how to move away from a FTC-only mindset and make a better use of the new application model.
 
The changing face of SharePoint adoption
Level: 100

Level: 200
Track: Business users, Office 365
Cloud computing today is enterprise software's version of the buffet: With so many options, where should you begin? Should you go for the whole smorgasbord at once, or pick and choose the menu items that are best for you?

Customizing the SharePoint 2013 Rich Text Editor
Level: 400
Track: Developers
The Rich Text Editor featured in both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 is a much debated piece of technology. Although feature-rich is it not without issues. It is not uncommon to see unwanted markup appear in the published text or to see wanted markup disappear. Luckily it is also very programmable. In this session we will explore the capabilities of the out of the box editor and the ways in which you can write code to customize the default behavior. After this session ends you will be able to help your content editors with a much improved experience that integrates well with the story of SharePoint.

Remote Provisioning SharePoint in an App
Level: 300
Track: Office365, Developers
By leveraging the new app model, we can customize the provision process in SharePoint Online to activate specific features, capabilities, and branding to our sites. This session will cover site provisioning from SharePoint Online using provider-hosted apps that can be hosted on Windows Azure. Besides the creation of the site collections we'll also focus on how you can customize your sites using CSOM techniques. This approach offers an alternative for the "classic" site/web templates. Get ready to dive in to the code! We will be showing a lot of code demo's.
 
Yammer integration options in SharePoint
Level: 100
Track: Business Users & End users
In this session I will talk about current Yammer integration options in SharePoint, both for SharePoint Online and on-premises. We all know there is an App, but what can you do with the App? I’ll demonstrate various scenarios, from showing Yammer feeds, to engage users in published content, to building communities in SharePoint together with Yammer. And how can Yammer support your collaboration environment? When do we switch to Yammer and when do we stay in SharePoint? Both platforms are amazing and each has its own powerful possibilities. In this session I hope to show you how 1+1=3.
 
Bouw een SharePoint App met Microsoft Access

Microsoft Access? Echt? Ja, je leest het goed; het is eenvoudig om een SharePoint App te bouwen met Access zonder code te schrijven. En dat laat ik zien!
 
How to get users to love metadata?
Level: 100
Track: Power Users
'Don't use folders!!! Use metadata!!!’ That's what you usually hear when people talk about Document Management in SharePoint..........are they right?
Determining what metadata to use can be tricky, determining how much metadata to use can be even trickier, and making users fill in all that metadata is probably the trickiest.
This session is about simple, straightforward, out of the box functionality that can greatly enhance the user's experience with metadata.....and make them fall in love with it.
 
Farewell XSL, Welcome Display Templates
Level: 200
Track: Power Users, Designers, Developers
Almost everything was built with XSL in SharePoint 2010, but this technology is a little bit outdated in SharePoint 2013. In this session we will focus on Display Templates. Display Templates leverage HTML and JavaScript instead of XSL to present is content. This new technology is widely used in SharePoint 2013, so this session will be a good starting point if you want to know more about Display Templates. You will learn where and for what these Display Templates are used, and how to create and modify Display Templates. So if HTML and JavaScript is something familiar for you, and want to know more on how you can brand certain elements, than this session is something for you.
