Welcome to the Brave New World of SharePoint and Office 365 Development!

Speaker: Bill Ayers

First the future was full trust solutions, then sandbox and then apps which became add-ins. This time it’s for real. The SharePoint Add-in model is here to stay – or is it?  In this session we will take a broad look at the SharePoint Add-in development model, its implications and its limitations, and introduce the new SharePoint Framework which promises a new “modern” client-side development story for web parts and more. The world is changing and our SharePoint solutions need to stay relevant in this new world of user expectations and user devices. A number of patterns and improvements have emerged to get around some of the shortcomings and support a more professional development model for building responsive client applications. In this talk we are going to see how far we can go with SharePoint and Office 365 development using JavaScript and client-side development for Windows, web and mobile applications.

Groups vs. Teams

Speaker: Alan Eardley

Microsoft have provided some great tools to enable us to collaborate in Office 365.  We can use calendars, files, distribution lists, Skype, files … the list keeps growing.

With the release of Teams, we have a new way to work with these different tools.

In this presentation I will compare and contrast the capabilities of Office 365 Groups and Teams, and even some of the capabilities found in more traditional SharePoint team sites.

You will learn what the differences are, what the benefits are and even what some of the teething pains are, and be enabled to choose the most appropriate tool for your teams to use.
