Hard to believe that it’s only a few days remaining until SPC 2014. Wow! Thought I would take a few moments to blog about my session here.
For the past decade now, I have been very passionate about SharePoint and specifically the no-code solution building opportunities within SharePoint. It is so often that I see people doing stuff the ‘hard way’ with code that someone then will have to manage through the rest of its life-cycle. Why go through that trouble if you can get it done with the same results without code?
That’s what my session at SPC 2014 is all about (http://www.sharepointconference.com/content/sessions/SPC285). I’m doing it in tandem with Mark Gillis of Microsoft, a writer who is also very passionate about the no-code solutions story in SharePoint. The session is on Tuesday, March 4, 2014 in Lando room 4201-4303.
The speakers were asked to do a quick video to describe what they will be presenting. Mine is below if you care to watch it:
As a ‘dress rehearsal’, Mark and I did a webinar on the topic last week the recording of which is available below. We will be talking about these subject areas and more during our session. Come on by if interested!
On Thursday, Oct. 3rd from 9– 10 am PDT / 12– 1 pm EDT, we will host a tweet jam to discuss trending issues and questions regarding SharePoint Workflows. In attendance will be Chris Beckett – certified SharePoint expert, author, trainer, and consultant. Chris has over a decade of experience building workflow solutions with SharePoint and will be there to contribute to discussions, provide answers to your questions and share some helpful tips!
What Exactly Is a Tweet Jam?
A tweet jam is a one-hour discussion hosted on Twitter. The purpose of a tweet jam is to share knowledge and answer questions on an issue relevant to a specific group (in this case SharePoint users building workflows). Each tweet jam is led by a moderator (SharePoint-Videos.com) and a dedicated group of experts to keep the discussion flowing. The public (or anyone using Twitter interested in the topic) is encouraged to join the discussion.
In attendance will be:
- @sharepointbits – Chris Becket, Microsoft Specialist, Trainer, and Author on SharePoint Workflows
- @asifrehmani – Asif Rehmani, SharePoint Server MVP, Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT), and Author
All experience levels are welcome to join in, just tweet all questions and/or responses throughout the Tweet Jam by using the #SPWorkflow hashtag, messages will automatically become part of the discussion.
Whether you’re new to Twitter or an avid Twitter user, please follow these guidelines to keep the discussion useful to all.
- Have your first #SPWorkflow tweet be an introduction: name, occupation.
- Subsequent tweets should start with the question number being responded to and the #spworkflow hashtag. For example, “@sharepointbits Q2 -what new features are available in SP Designer 2013? #spworkflow”
- Do not use the tweet jam session for product or service promotional announcements. The goal of the session is to exchange knowledge and stimulate discussion on the topic.
- Keep the discussion professional, but informal
- A tweet jam is an open public forum – please be focused and thoughtful in your postings.
Planned discussion points include anything relevant to “workflows” in SharePoint with a few hot topics such as:
- How do you upgrade SharePoint 2010 workflows to 2013?
- Will SharePoint 2010 workflows run on SharePoint 2013?
- What is Workflow Manager? Is it included with SharePoint 2013?
- What are the Top X considerations for preparing to deploy SharePoint 2013 workflows?
- What is the Workflow Interop Bridge? Why would I use it?
- What are the Top X new features that I should be excited about with SharePoint 2013 workflow?
- Can you still write custom workflow extensions for SharePoint 2013 workflows?
We’ll have plenty of power users, developers, content managers and experts in attendance to respond to your questions, provide useful tips and we look forward to hearing your input as well!
If you have any questions prior to the event or would like to join as a participant, please direct them to Kari Bennett: kari(at)sharepointElearning(dot)com. We anticipate a productive and informative chat and hope many of you will be able to join the discussion!
