In this session, Scott Restivo, founder and president of Crow Canyon Systems, Inc., walks us through Modern SharePoint UI – what it entails, the pros and cons, Microsoft’s direction with it, classic vs modern, how to use it, and more! Here's what we'd like to do on 10/25: 6:00-6:30 - Networking & Dinner 6:30-7:30 - Scott's Session 7:30-8:00 - Q&A 8:00-8:30 - Wrap-up/Networking Session Summary: Over the last year or so, Microsoft has introduced the so-called “Modern UI” for SharePoint as the preferred alternative to the “Classic UI”. The Modern UI incorporates the latest web technologies to provide more functionality and easier configurability, as well as native mobile functionality. But what are the issues and concerns, as well as the advantages and disadvantages, with using the Modern UI? Does it make SharePoint easier to use and more intuitive? How does it affect developers? With Microsoft’s big push to the Modern UI, it is important to understand its impacts to your SharePoint environment. So join the Bay Area Cloud Practice User Group group for a chance to fill your stomach AND your brain. We look forward to seeing you on October 25th!
