SPSSTHLM03: Office 365 Groups Deep Dive
Level: 300
Track: IT Pro, Business
Office 365 Groups are Microsoft’s answer to sharing information and collaborating across ad hoc groups and project teams. In this session we will take a deep dive into some of the more advanced Groups capabilities and into the management and governance aspects of Groups.

First up is Office 365 Planner, which offers people a simple and highly visual way to organize teamwork and which leverages the Office 365 Groups functionality heavily. I’ll show you how Planner works and what scenarios Planner supports in your organization.

Second, we’ll discuss Office 365 Connectors for Groups. Office 365 Connectors are a great way to get useful information and content into your Office 365 Group. Any user can connect their group to services like Trello, Bing News, Twitter, etc., and get notified of the group’s activity in that service. I’ll demonstrate how to use Connectors in your organization.

Last but not least, we’ll talk about manageability of Office 365 Groups. Groups in Office 365 are intended to be created and managed by end users. I’ll show you how to set up some policies and create some quick reports through PowerShell to manage your environment when it comes to Groups.
SPSSTHLM04: Branding Strategies for SharePoint and Add-ins - From Design to a modern Style Guide
Level: 200
Track: Developer

SPSSTHLM05: Office Graph - Is it for you and your business?
Level: 200
Track: End-User, Business
Your company has Office 365 licenses, and Delve and the Office Graph is there. What's the big hype, and should you care?

In this session Mikael will give an overview in simple terms of what the Office Graph and Delve is, and show how it can play an important part for information retrieval and insights in your business. Mikael will also touch on hybrid scenarios and future investments coming to the Office Graph.

The Office Graph might not be your cup of tea right now, but with the right sweetener it can very well become an aquired taste!
SPSSTHLM06: Power Apps for Developers
Level: 300
Track: Developer
Wait, aren't Power Apps just the new LightSwitch, targeted for the business users?

No, not really. PowerApps, out of the box, can surface data from various predefined data sources. But how about custom, company-specific data sources? Or processes? This is where developers jump in. In this session, we will explore extending Power Apps with custom sources and business logic, and integrate them in the existing processes.
SPSSTHLM07: What's new in SharePoint 2016
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro
MinRole, DLP, OOS etc. The new version of SharePoint brings a lot of new features for Farm- and SiteCollection-Admins. In this session we will not only look at the things that are new, removed or deprecated but also do an upgrade from SharePoint 2013.
SPSSTHLM08: Effective SharePoint Architecture
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro
When building your SharePoint farm, it is imperative to ensure that the underlying environment is stable and scalable in order to support the growing needs of the business as it becomes more mature. In this session we will look at:
•    Required infrastructure for a physical and virtual environments
•    Backup and restore policies
•    Service application considerations
•    Technical governance
SharePoint Administrators and architects will have a more holistic view of what is required by Infrastructure so as to ensure uptime and acceptable response from the SharePoint deployment.
SPSSTHLM09: Scaling SharePoint 2016 Farms with MinRole & Other Tools
Level: 300
Track: IT Pro
MinRole introduced with SharePoint Server 2016 promotes a standardised role based topology for SharePoint deployments. Whilst this feature can deliver numerous benefits it also has substantial design constraints and limitations for common on premises deployments. This session will deep dive into MinRole and associated changes in the topology aspects of SharePoint Server 2016 and also cover other approaches which can be used instead of, or in combination with MinRole. Practical deployment guidance rather than marketing hype is the focus of this session.
SPSSTHLM10: Hybrid End to End – OneDrive, Team Sites and BCS
Level: 300
Track: IT Pro, Business
A hybrid SharePoint deployment is not just marketing bingo. With SharePoint 2016 just released, many organisations are looking for ways to combine their existing SharePoint investments with the bright future of the cloud. To achieve a single user experience and to relax the cloud discussion Microsoft invested in a Hybrid setup. In such a setup certain content and services can be serviced from On-Premises while other can be services from Office 365.
In this self-contained first session of a two-part on hybrid Thomas and Donald will discuss the business drivers, architecture and configuration of OneDrive, Team Sites, BCS and User Profile Redirection. Hybrid Search will be covered in the second session on Hybrid “Hybrid Search Deep dive”

SPSSTHLM15: Building Office Add-ins with Visual Studio
Level: 200
Track: Developer
If you ever built, or considered building an application for Office you are probably familiar with Visual Studio Tools for Office (VSTO). Now with the 2013 iteration we have moved to the "Add-in model" for Office applications and that is a good thing. Now we can use our front-end web development skills to deliver Office Add-ins. In this session we will build solutions that will give our Office users tools that can take advantage of the new APIs along with other endpoints integrated into the environment they use every day. You can deliver a huge amount of business value with surprisingly little effort.

Learn how to build Office Add-ins using the same skills we use for SharePoint, web development, Windows and mobile apps

Use the power of the Office 365 platform to deliver contextually relevant information

Extend our existing SharePoint infrastructure to enhance user productivity

Deliver solutions that can be used on Windows, iOS and soon Android and MacOS devices.

SPSSTHLM16: The ghost in the productivity machine
Level: 200
Track: End-User, Business
A presentation on how to excel in business values when implementing a digital workplace in Office 365 and SharePoint Online. The presentation will show the potential for a project built on strategy and highlights the following path to success:

Productivity -> Digital workplace -> Ways of working -> Desired behaviors

The productivity phase will include a general argumentation and a drill down on Personal, Team and Capability productivity.

The digital workplace is a walkthrough on how human, technology and space interact and how they both can enforce change but also conserve old ways of working.

New ways of working will amplitude possibilities when the cloud and mobility empowers endusers with tools to work anytime, anywhere and anyhow.

Desired behaviors is a wraps up the strategy with the least viable rules when it comes to how people can collaborate, share, contribute, learn and reach within the digital workplace.

SPSSTHLM17: Developing with the Microsoft Graph
Level: 300
Track: Developer
In this session you will learn what are the Microsoft Graph API, and how you can leverage them to create business solutions that leverage the power of the Office 365 ecosystem. You will understand how to authenticate and authorize access to API through Microsoft Azure Active Directory and ADAL (Azure Active Directory Authentication Library), and how to consume the various services either using whatever REST/HTTP client, or using Microsoft .NET directly over HTTP(S) or via the Microsoft Graph SDK. The session covers both the RTM version of the API, as well as some of the upcoming services filed under the beta endpoint of the services.
SPSSTHLM18: Extending Office Add-ins with Azure Container Service
Level: 300
Track: Developer
The new Azure Container Service(ACS) can be a subsitute for traditional
virtual machines. This new Container As A Service can be leveraged to
increase our development productivity on the Office platform. In this
session we will see what how we can leverage the Docker platform for
Add-ins in Office 365. Because we will be using CAAS model we can
offer microservices which are scalable, secure and reliable.

Level: 200
Track: IT Pro, End-User
This session looks at the out of the box functionality that can be used to build a team whereabouts list in SharePoint, something that is quite commonly asked for in some of the public sector organisations that I work with.

We'll look at the limitations of out of the box functionality, then explore how the use of Display Templates for List Views, Fields and Edit dialogs can significantly improve the user experience when interacting with the data.

Level: 200
Track: IT Pro, Developer, End-User, Business
With the popularisation, and recent 2016 updates, of Office Addins, and more specifically Outlook Addins we’re now a step closer to realising the paperless office dream. This session explores some real world examples of how Outlook addins can be used in a standalone way or in combination with Workflow, CRM, and Digital signature tools, centred around Office 365, to both make mundane tasks easier, and get us the closest yet to paperless. As well as process optimised Workflow for big and small tasks. Everything from scheduling meetings to end-to-end customer on-boarding and contract negotiation.
