Event description



Well it has been an exciting 2 months! Ignite at the end of September released a ton of new features for Office 365, SharePoint and Azure.

There have been a number of SharePoint Framework drops too.

Therefore, we thought it would make sense to inform you of the annoucements made at Ignite. There is a lot! 

Additionally, with the introduction to SharePoint Framework we are looking to continue the learning and our journey so that we can help get us all up to speed with the latest approaches.

So we are have Richard Fennell MVP taking us through using Visual Studio Team Services with client side development approaches.

Last by no means least - if you attend you will have the opportunity to win a ticket to Unity Connect 2016 in Haarlem, Netherlands, which is worth 700 Euro!

As always there will be SharePint afterwards along with free food in the form of pizza, we look forward to seeing you there!


1) Ignite 2016 Catchup (Paul Gallagher, Simon Hudson and Simon Doy)

Microsoft were on fire in September and there has been a lot of exciting news for SharePoint 2016, Office 365 and Azure. This session will take you through the latest announcements and maybe there will be some demos in there too. 

2) Modern ALM and DevOps practices using Microsoft VSTS - Richard Fennell (MVP - Black Marble)

Modern development for platforms such as SharePoint requires the use of a range of languages and tool chains.  In this session I will show how these can be pulled into a cohesive application life cycle and DevOps process using Microsoft's Visual Studio Team Services tools, and in particular the new build and release cross platform system.
