This week I'm heading to the UK to join the SharePoint Evolutions Roadshow Conference. This conference has been going on for about a week makingi t's way up through the southern part of England. I pickup the conference in Newcastle on Wednesday, June 18 and continue on until the end of the show into Scotland at Edinburgh, Aberdeen and then over to Ireland to Belfast and Dublin. This should be a fun conference meeting a big cross section of people interested in SharePoint & Office 365! During the show I'll present one of the following three sessions in these cities:

  • BreezeJS Makes Client-Side SharePoint 2013 REST Development a… BREEZE!
    SharePoint 2013 gives developers two options for accessing their data remotely using either the client side object model (CSOM) or OData… also known as REST. Both provide different methods for getting data and have their own advantages as well as disadvantages. For those of us who prefer the REST option, we know there are a few challenges in that we have a lot of plumbing we need to write. In this session you’ll learn how the free and open source library Breeze turns working with the SharePoint REST API a breeze! Breeze brings validation, entity checks, batching, change tracking, and client-side caching to the client… think an ORM like Entity Framework in JavaScript! In this session you’ll learn how to set it up, how to configure it, how to write different types of queries and then how to even use some really slick data validation capabilities in the browser!

  • Building SharePoint Single Page Apps with AngularJS
    SharePoint 2013 enables developers to create two different kinds of apps: cloud apps and SharePoint-Hosted Apps. The latter type, SharePoint-Hosted Apps, mean that the majority, if not all, of the application runs within the client. In this session you’ll learn how to build a SharePoint-Hosted Application using the popular presentation framework AngularJS. We will cover how to best structure your projects and leverage the SharePoint REST API & CSOM to create a great experience for your users, all without refreshing the page!

  • SharePoint 2013 Workflows – Creating Custom Forms, Events and CSOM
    By now you’ve likely already explored the new capabilities and architecture of workflow in SharePoint 2013 and Workflow Manager. One of the more powerful and compelling things Microsoft has added in SharePoint 2013’s workflow story is a client side object model for interacting with the workflow engine as well as creating custom forms. In this session you’ll learn how to employ both of these to create custom association and initiation forms, as well as how to have a random form communicate with a currently running workflow using custom events.

So where can you see each of these sessions? Here's my schedule for the rest of the roadshow, starting this Wednesday:
