Speaking at SharePoint Saturday UK 2014

I’ve been going to SharePoint Saturday UK since 2012, when it was still in Nottingham. Great content, great speakers and a great atmosphere. As a plus, it enables me to stay in touch with many friends in the UK SharePoint community – who I typically only see a few times a year. Last year Brett, Tony and Mark gave me the opportunity to speak and so will I be doing again this year.

I’m delivering my talk on setting up the required infrastructure to use SharePoint Hosted Apps on-premises:

SharePoint Apps for the IT Pro – What you need to know

Level: 200
Track: IT Professional

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 to prepare your infrastructure to run SharePoint Hosted apps reliably.

 

SharePoint Saturday UK 2014 is held in the Hinckley Island Hotel in Hinckley (Leicestershire) on November 29, 2014.

Registration has opened on the event website. If you’re looking for a room at the venue, there’s a nice autumn promotion going on at the moment.
