April 2019 – Paths to Collaboration in Office 365

 

Date: Friday April 19th, 2019

Time: 11:30a-1:00p

Topic: Paths to Collaboration in Office 365

From Sites, to Groups, to Teams, to Delve and everywhere in between, Office 365 is built for collaboration. We are going to open up the toolbox, and sort through the clutter to find the right tool for the right job.  Maybe we prefer the one-stop chat-based shop of Teams, the solitary nature of OneDrive for Business, the modern web experience of SharePoint Online sites, or the Outlook based experience of Groups.  Maybe we just want to let Delve tell us what we need before we need it.  This presentation will help you understand each path a little better and decide which ones to use to get your work done more quickly and more “collaboratively.”

November 2018 – Tapping the Power in PowerShell

Date: Friday November 16th, 2018

Time: 11:30a-1:00p

Topic: Tapping the Power in PowerShell

Target Audience:Developers and IT Pros

Level: 200/300

SP Version(s):SharePoint Online, SharePoint Server 2010+

PowerShell has been around in some form since 2005, but it was only with SharePoint Server 2010 that PowerShell became an official part of the SharePoint administrative landscape. Nowadays, PowerShell is the preferred mechanism for administrative management of SharePoint farms, both on-premises and in the cloud with SharePoint Online. In this session, we’ll be taking a more advanced look at PowerShell and how it can be used to execute and script administrative actions for SharePoint. We’ll look at some common SharePoint activities that are carried-out through PowerShell, as well as some of the newer PowerShell capabilities like desired state configuration (DSC). We’ll also look at some PowerShell watch-outs including some behaviors that can sometimes cause trouble with SharePoint. Administrators and developers alike will leave this session with a variety of concepts and script samples that can be used to immediately improve operations within their own SharePoint environments.

Highlights

  1. A review of baseline PowerShell operations, concepts, and SharePoint cmdlets
  2. A look at advanced PowerShell capabilities (like DSC) and how they can be leveraged

Numerous script samples that can be adapted for use in most SharePoint environments
