Conference season. Bring it on!

Although I had good intentions not to speak at too many events in 2016 I learned the hard way: if you submit for many events, you get accepted many times. I still focus my efforts on Europe in the first place, ignoring events in the US or in the rest of the world. You can’t be everywhere, right?

I already did sessions at our local user group, in Cologne and in Copenhagen earlier this year. But it doesn’t stop there: this is where you can meet me in the coming weeks and months. And believe it or not, there’s more to come.

SharePoint Saturday Madrid

May 7, 2016 in Madrid (Spain)

Click here for Disaster! Configuring SharePoint standby farms.

Disaster recovery with SharePoint is no walk in the park. This session will show you how to configure a SharePoint standby farm and how to get your data across reliably (and in a supported way). We’ll introduce SQL Availability Groups and how they can help us out. Finally we’ll provide you with some real-world tips on how to manage and operate such an environment so you’ll be ready when disaster strikes.

SharePoint Saturday Stockholm

I don’t know how this happened, but I’m delivering three sessions there, together with my buddies Donald Hessing and Elio Struyf 🙂

Hybrid End to End – OneDrive, Team Sites and BCS + Hybrid End to End – Search

A hybrid SharePoint deployment is not just marketing bingo. With SharePoint 2016 just released, many organisations are looking for ways to combine their existing SharePoint investments with the bright future of the cloud. Even Microsoft realised you don’t have to put all your eggs in the cloud basket anymore: a hybrid deployment is the way to go for many companies for at least a couple of years. The cloud future is bright, but you don’t have to throw all your existing hard work out of the window to take advantage of the lastest and greatest. This session will show you what a hybrid environment is all about

An IT Pro and a developer walk into a bar - SharePoint Search happy hour

Out of the box, SharePoint Search is pretty good. But do you know what it takes to bring your users’ search experience to the next level? This session will present you with an all-you-can-eat menu of smaller and bigger tweaks to your search engine. From setting up and scaling the infrastructure needed - with a bit of hybrid sprinkled on top - to mixing the right cocktail of user interface tweaks and optimizations to get your users actually *using* search. Developers and administrators unite to create a better search engine!
