With the change in terminology over the years, the name “SharePoint” became a little grey/muddy – and we said goodbye to the “SharePoint Conference”.
In Australia, we have the Digital Workplace Conference which is being held on 23-24 August in Sydney.
I’ll be presenting a session about MICROSOFT TEAMS – and what you can do from a developer viewpoint.
This platform (teams) is one of the most exciting new tools from Microsoft, following on from Office 365 ‘groups’.
I’m also re-thinking and re-evaluating what it means to have an “INTRANET” – with the use of tools like MS-Teams – and wonder how we’ll see a tool like OUTLOOK in a few years from now. (Email isn’t going away, but there are other ways of working together)
Project activities via ‘conversational collaboration’ and ‘chat-based workspaces’ are the new way – but are businesses ready ??
And then there’s AZURE – which is massive…
Stuff is happening so fast that it’s hard to know how to keep up to date. And – it’s hard to know what is the best way to do X, Y, or Z… (pick your topic)
Which is why it’s GREAT to have a conference like DWC – where there will be lots of different perspectives and viewpoints – and wonderful discussion & debate.
*I* personally enjoy these conferences to validate my own perspectives and technical approaches – and either (a) discover something new or (b) realise that what I’m doing is correct – and BOTH are great outcomes !
My session at DWC is in the TECHNICAL ROCKSTARS track (LOL !) – there is also tracks about :
- Thought Leadership
- Customer Case Studies
- Business Productivity
As above – new ideas, and, see what other people are doing….
My session is entitled : Customising and Extending Microsoft Teams
I’m still working on some samples & demo’s – and looking forward to discussing with you all in AUGUST.
See you in Sydney !
