Count Bobby Discovers the Microsoft Graph
Level: 300
Track: Developer
The Microsoft Graph is the single endpoint for accessing cloud-stored information, either in organizational settings or for consumers. It allows you to find out about machines (think Intune), users and their relationships (think Outlook), as well as OneDrive, Excel and obviously Sharepoint. The Graph API is growing by leaps and bounds every month, and thus we cannot look at all API details. Instead, we are going take a look at the overarching concepts across all resource types, from authentication to common operations, to advanced concepts such as delta query and webhooks.

Expand your platform with Azure App Service
Level: 200
Track: Developer
The small and mid-size companies that want to expand their solutions and infrastructure usually utilize the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) concept as they find it easy, controllable and expandable. While that approach is great, there is simpler, specialized Azure App Service that enables you to host web apps, mobile apps, and API apps without configuring virtual machine and all supporting networking infrastructure. This topic will enable the audience to get a overview of the Azure App Service, select a plan and deployment methods (Visual Studio, FTP clients, Azure PS) and even configure Web Apps and use Azure WebJobs feature to schedule tasks. As an bonus, we well cover the Azure Traffic Manager to distribute requests between two or more app services.

From event receivers to SharePoint Webhooks
Level: 300
Track: Developer
Reacting to events that happen inside SharePoint has always been one of the most common extensibility points and core to many customizations to the platform. For a long time, we've had Event Receivers, which allow developers to inject code into SharePoint that gets called whenever a specific event occurs. It works well but because Event Receivers run inside SharePoint are require assemblies to be deployed to servers, it has no place in today's cloud world.

With SharePoint Online, Microsoft came up with Remote Event Receivers, a way to support the same use cases but keeping the code outside of SharePoint. Recently, Microsoft decided to embrace industry standards and added support for webhooks in SharePoint.

In this session you'll learn what are webhooks and how they differ from SharePoint's event receivers and remote event receivers. We'll discuss how to subscribe to a webhook and what are the development patterns when using SharePoint's webhooks.

Microsoft Flow and PowerApps End-To-End
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro, Business
End of 2016 Microsoft made Flow and PowerApps general available, after being in public preview for more than half a year. With Microsoft Flow it is possible to connect multiple services (both cloud based and on-premises) and build automated workflows based on an information exchange between these services. PowerApps is a service that lets you create business apps in a relatively short period of time (in minutes up to just a couple of days), publish these apps instantly for web and mobile, and share them with team members or even the entire organisation.

For users, this is all wonderful. But what does this mean for administrators? How to handle security and control? How can you support hybrid scenarios? What is happening in the background? What if something doesn’t work?

In this session I will answer all these questions. We'll build a combined PowerApp / Flow solution for holiday requests. We’ll talk about the Flow and PowerApps Admin Center where you can control which services are allowed to connect to business data and/or public data, and define environments that Flows and PowerApps are allowed to run in. We’ll also cover hybrid scenarios and how you can connect to on-premises SQL databases and SharePoint farms. And finally I will show you how you can assist your users in troubleshooting when something goes wrong.
Office 365 Groups and Planner API - Getting Started
Level: 200
Track:
Office 365 Groups have the main purpose to increase productivity of teams by leveraging different services under a single hub, as well as underlying technology to Planner and Teams in Office 365.

In this session you will get introduced to Groups and Planner APIs in Office 365, learn what are the basic resources available through REST calls and how to use them in your applications. Depending on available time, we might spend some time introducing Microsoft Graph API.

Office 365 next level Security: Web Service Impersonation using AzureAD
Level: 300
Track: IT Pro, Developer
As more and more Users and Companies move from On Premises towards Office 365 two questions remain omnipresent: 1. How to deal with User Security? 2. How to deal with Web Services that are outside the Office 365 World? This could get even more complicated in a multi-tenant and multi-server architecture.

The good part is: Office 365 offers a way to impersonate users for any Web Service that is used within SharePoint, Dynamics CRM, Teams or any other Office 365 App. The (yet) improvable part: Not many users and developers know about this.

Join my session to see a live SharePoint example of how we seamlessly integrated our dox42 Web Service into Office 365 using Azure Active Directory functionality.

Office 365 tenant to tenant migration - a complete survival guide
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro, Business
As nowadays many companies use Office 365 for different scenarios more and more enterprises need to have a plan to migrate content from one tenant into another tenant due to mergers and acquisitions. The main difficulty with this is to develop a plan in order to migrate all contents from the source to the destination tenant as there are dependencies to the local Active Directory infrastructure, which should not be forgotten.
Another problem is that many companies use different services for the same purpose. This also needs be considered when doing such a tenant merge.

Therefore, this session should provide a guide on how to migrate services like SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, Office 365 Groups, Teams and all other major services from one tenant to another with little user impact and zero loss of productivity for the users. Additionally common scenarios will be outlined with real-world approaches for migrations and possible stumbling blocks.
SharePoint and CRM in the 365 World
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro, End-User, Business
There have been integrations between SharePoint and CRM since 2011, but now the landscape has changed dramatically. The availability of Office 365 and Dynamics 365 has brought many new possibilities for delivering solutions using both technologies. This session will explore three key areas of integration to show that it is not as simple as just SharePoint and CRM anymore.

Firstly it will be demonstrated how the Document Management links between CRM and SharePoint have grown significantly in Office 365 versus On Premises Deployments. It will then be shown that CRM with Office 365 Groups potentially offers a far better collaboration option for Documents. Finally a focus on Powers Apps and Flow will show there are integration possibilities with SharePoint and CRM which previously was only the realm of developers.

Use Office UI Fabric React to Build Beauty with SharePoint
Level: 200
Track: IT Pro, Developer
When Microsoft released the Office UI Fabric, they enabled SharePoint developers to quickly build custom webparts, controls and applications that could inherit the innate look and feel of Office 365 and SharePoint with simple to use structured code. With Office UI Fabric React, we can quickly build sophisticated controls, tightly bound to SharePoint, such as command bars, color pickers, people pickers, panels, buttons and much more all tied in with React, the default rendering engine for the SharePoint Framework.

In this session we will introduce the Office UI Fabric and learn how to use include it in our current or next SharePoint projects. After a quick introduction of the basics and how to get started, we will dig into code samples so as to see we can build our own applications that look to be a part of SharePoint.

Benefits of this Session:

•    Overview of Office UI Fabric
•    Learn how to use Office UI Fabric with React to leverage repeatable components and controls.
•    See how you can begin using Office UI Fabric React now
