Speaking at SharePoint Saturday Belgium 2014


In what seems like a rather bold move, the BIWUG board has decided to let me speak at their annual SharePoint Saturday event again - even after I could not make it to last year’s edition.

The event takes place at our company’s offices in Brussels on April 26, 2014. They have a nice lineup planned of both Belgian and international speakers. The full agenda will be released soon. Registration is now open here. This is my session:

SharePoint 2013 Farm Architecture - Bringing it all together

We’ve probably all seen them: farms that were just set up, but seem like the’ve been built a couple of years ago. Ten application pools, even more web applications, a myriad of farm solutions, suspicious IIS settings and exotic farm configurations that just don’t seem right at all. Platform hygiene just seems like a distant dream. In this session we’ll look at some techniques and good practices that you can use when designing your next SharePoint farm. Host named site collections and as less application pools and web applications as possible is the main message here. We’ll see how to set them up and make them work with SSL, SharePoint apps, reverse proxies and load balancers without loosing your mind. Make your on-premises farm future proof - and cloud ready.
