Around this time last year, I attended my first SharePoint Fest conference in Seattle, an event I had wanted to be involved in for quite some time. And you know what? It was worth the wait! This is one of the most professional and well-run events in the community puts on in the SharePoint space.

It's about that time for the 2018 show... and I'm thrilled to be involved with the event again! Join me the week of August 20-24 in beautiful downtown Seattle!

Join me for the Day 2 Keynote

As announced earlier today, I'm excited to share that I will be delivering the day 2 keynote at the conference. What's my topic? Continuous Collaboration: how community and partners are shaping the evolution of SharePoint and Office 365

In recent years we keep hearing from Microsoft how the community is shaping SharePoint and Office 365. Who's the community? That's you, me, partners, ISVs and other people who live and breathe these products in our work life. When you dig in you see how much influence we are having on the product and how this really is a collaboration with Microsoft in building and evolving the platform. We're no longer just collaborating in SharePoint, but we're collaborating on SharePoint together with Microsoft!

I can't wait to share my thoughts on this, not only how it's impacting our work but Microsoft's work as well, and see some tangible examples on the impact it has on developers, IT Pros, implementors and partners alike!

Get your SharePoint Framework on with My 3 Workshops!

Yeah... you read that right! I've got a packed workshop schedule at SPFest Seattle this week. The week will start with a full-day workshop followed by two half-day workshops... all focused on the SharePoint Framework!

Monday Workshop (full day): Mastering the SharePoint Framework

This is the in-person version of my on-demand video course Mastering the SharePoint Framework.

This workshop is for developers, both seasoned SharePoint server-side developers, and web developers, that want to be immersed in the SharePoint Framework. You will learn what the SharePoint Framework is all about, what is involved in getting your environment setup to be productive and how to build custom components. We will go from vanilla JavaScript to using popular web frameworks to create client-side web parts, UI extensions, call SharePoint REST APIs & third-party or custom web services. In addition, you will see how you can leverage provided tools, both from Microsoft in the form of APIs and tools as well as the community to manage the lifecycle of your projects, version, upgrade and deploy things the right way. By the end of the day, after this demo-heavy session, you will be well on your way to being a SharePoint Framework Master!

This workshop great reviews from SPFest in Washington DC, with 94% saying they were "very satisfied" or "exceeded expectations" with comments like "Excellent session. Very informative. Great presentation skills. Highly technical. So glad I attended" & "This is the best session for me in SPFest".

Tuesday Workshops (half-day): SPFX + React & SPFX + Angular

After spending a full day with me (well, I hope you do at least), on Tuesday I'll have two half-day workshops. One will be for those who want to leverage Angular in SPFx projects and the other will be on leveraging React. We'll go deeper than what we can cover in the full-day workshop. The Angular workshop will cover Angular 6 as well as Angular Elements.

Breakout Sessions

In addition to the workshops, I have two breakout sessions:

  • Building Client Web Parts with the SharePoint Framework with Angular
  • Be a SPFx Ninja with these Performance, Debugging, Logging and Telemetry Tricks!

The descriptions for these can be found on the site if you head over to the sessions page and filter on my name.

I hope to see you in Seattle and chat all things SharePoint Framework with you!
