About the Session: Transitioning to Modern SharePoint and Office 365 Cloud Development Many traditional SharePoint On Premise developers have been caught off guard with the fast pace of changes to the SharePoint ecosystem in recent years. Whether it's the rapid adoption of Office 365 or the growing investment in cloud based infrastructure and services it can all feel very foreign to many developers still using some of the same development approaches and tools first pioneered in SharePoint 2007. In this talk we will break down traditional SharePoint solutions such as features, webparts, workflows, event receivers, and timer jobs and discuss how those translate to their modern equivalents in Office 365 and the cloud. We'll not only touch on popular topics such as the role of SPFX, PowerApps, and Flow but also other key Azure Services such as Logic Apps, Azure Functions, and Hybrid Data Connections. You'll gain an understanding for the growing role of new APIs such as Microsoft Graph, various nuances with authentication, and the importance of hybrid environments and accessing on premise data. Along the way you'll discover some of the tools, techniques, and approaches that will be invaluable as you decide what part of your toolbelt will be the most important to upgrade! Speaker Bio: Josh Carlisle is a full stack software developer based out of Raleigh, North Carolina working as a Senior Solution Architect at B&R Business Solutions.

  • Office Add-Ins: Customizing MS Word
    Event Agenda: 5:45pm - Doors Open 5:45pm to 6:15pm - Networking & Dinner 6:15pm - Announcements & Introductions 6:20pm to 7:40pm - Presentation Please note the new location !!! About the Session: Office Add-Ins: Customizing MS Word "We need to standardize our document content and formatting": I've had this request a lot, and if you have too, then you've considered Office Add-Ins. What could once only be accomplished using VSTO and client installations, now you can accomplish using HTML, CSS, and JavaScript to extend and interact with Word, Excel, PowerPoint, OneNote, Project, and Outlook in a far lighter weight and flexible way. Your solution can run in Office across multiple platforms, including Office for Windows, Office Online, Office for the Mac, and Office for the iPad. We will look at how to build task panels and ribbon commands to interact with Word documents, how to connect to SharePoint content, and cover the structure of publishing the Add-In and make it trusted by Office. Elaine Krause Elaine began developing .Net applications when it was first released back in 2001. SharePoint soon emerged as an intriguing .Net platform in its initial incarnation as Digital Dashboard, and 6 years ago Elaine chose to focus her development efforts using SharePoint. She has a passion to make SharePoint work for organizations by presenting the powerful features from a compelling and usable interface. With the goal of building a positive User Experience she has added branding and design to her development arsenal. In her spare time she loves to cycle around Austin and fuse art glass in her kiln.

  • November Meeting - End of Year Social
    This event was canceled.
  • Business Process Automation with PowerApps and Flow
    Event Agenda: 5:45pm - Doors Open 5:45pm to 6:15pm - Networking & Dinner 6:15pm - Announcements & Introductions 6:20pm to 7:40pm - Presentation Virtual Meeting Connection: https://zoom.us/j/374262750 About the Session: In 2016, Microsoft introduced two new tools for Office 365: PowerApps and Flow. PowerApps is designed for power users everywhere to connect, create and share business data with your team on any device in minutes. Flow is designed to create automated workflows between your applications and services, such as SharePoint, to get notifications, synchronize files and collect data. In this session, users will learn how to get started quickly with the PowerApps to create apps with an Microsoft Office-like experience. Users will discover how to use built-in connections to connect PowerApps to services such as SharePoint, Office 365, and OneDrive, and even on-premises systems such as SharePoint. Users will also learn how to share PowerApps with coworkers to take advantage of an app you created. This session will also discuss how to get started with Microsoft Flow. Users will learn how to take advantage of pre-built templates for creating workflows. Users will also learn how to create their own flows in an easy visual designer that works anywhere on the web. Finally, we'll discuss how to manage your Flows during and after runtime. The future of SharePoint is exciting, and the addition of PowerApps and Flow can help to address the myriad of business processes faced by today’s business teams. About the Speaker: William (Andy) Huneycutt is a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional (MVP) and Microsoft Certified Trainer (MCT) specializing in Office 365 and SharePoint. He works as a training instructor, courseware developer, and consultant for ASPE Training. With more than six years experience as an instructor he’s taught SharePoint and Office 365 training classes across fifteen courseware tracks, including from SharePoint End User, Power User, Administration, as well as Project Management and Business Intelligence. In addition, he developed ASPE-IT courses in SharePoint for Business Process Automation, SharePoint for Business Analysts, and Workflows for SharePoint. Business Process Automation is a course centered on out-of-the-box solutions for enterprise content management, form services, business automation processes through workflows, and no code solutions. William currently serves on the advisory board for the SharePoint Institute, an organization dedicated to the advancement of professionals through real-world SharePoint certification. He also serves on the leadership committee of the Charlotte Area SharePoint User Group and SharePoint Saturday for Charlotte, NC. About the Sponsor: SharePoint Institute (SPI) provides a standard for professionals to gauge their knowledge and distinguish their SharePoint expertise. While certifications exist for the technical side of SharePoint, such as deployment and administration, real-world application of SharePoint certification is neglected, and SPI Certificates bridge that gap. SPI also hosts the annual SharePoint Engage (http://sharepointinstitute.com/event-page/sharepoint-engage-raleigh-2017-register/) conference in Raleigh, NC. This year the event is October 24-25 at the Embassy Suites Brier Creek. We will be giving away a free pass at the September 21st TriSPUG meeting, as well as a discount for all who attend.
