    This one-day workshop aims to demystify the new SharePoint 2013 as well 2016 features. You often see and hear about them at a high-level overview but never in detail.

    If you're looking at Office 365, many of the features and use cases are relatively the same. We'll cover some of the new features available there as well to see if it makes sense for you to either go there or use it in a hybrid approach with your own On-Premises.

    Here are some of the things that will be covered:
    • New and notable features in SharePoint
    • Figuring out how collaboration works now
    • Focus on using the new Search to drive content to the right people
    • How to do a migration
    • Comparison of features from different versions, including Office 365
    • How these features actually work and their limitations

    As well as some insights into what's coming and how it will impact you and your organization.

  • WRK106 - Business Process Automation with PowerApps and Flow

    In 2016, Microsoft introduced two new tools in Office 365: PowerApps and Flow. PowerApps is designed for power users everywhere to connect, create and share business apps and forms for your team. Flow is designed to create automated workflows between your favorite apps and services, such as SharePoint, to get notifications, synchronize files and collect data. As these products have evolved and matured since their release, Microsoft has made clear it is time for organizations to consider moving away from SharePoint Designer and InfoPath. This workshop is a deep dive into the capabilities of PowerApps and Flow as organizations transition from SharePoint Designer and InfoPath.

    In this workshop, users will learn how to get started quickly with PowerApps to create rich forms and apps complete with an Microsoft Office-like experience.
    • Users will learn how to create an app or form from scratch for use in the web or on mobile platforms.
    • Discover how to use built-in connections to connect PowerApps to cloud services such as Office 365 and OneDrive, and on-premises systems such as SharePoint.
    • Detailed comparison of PowerApps and InfoPath.

    This workshop will also discuss how to work smarter and more efficiently by automating workflows across the most common apps and services.
    •  Users will learn how to build, manage, and administrator Flows in your environment.
    •  Learn to create Flows from scratch or by using pre-built templates in the visual designer.
    •  Discover how to connect Flow to over 100 data sources.

    Learn how to inspire, motivate, and drive sustainable Microsoft Teams user adoption across your organization while proactively enforcing operational governance.

    With built-in integration with the full Office 365 stack, it is easier than ever for end-users to create a team and start collaborating.

The key to drive excitement, organizational buy-in and adoption is being able to provide relevant, business-contextual applications that drive consistent, sustainable usage.

    • Understand how different types of users in your organization can make (or break) your chances of user adoption success
    • Understand how innovation games can help drive shared understanding, uncover user requirements and drive engagement/enthusiasm

    When building SharePoint Framework solutions, regardless if they are client-side web parts or UI extensions, there is a visual component to these controls. While you could implement these interfaces by hand yourself, why not take advantage of a modern web framework? Frameworks make data binding, event handling and state management so much easier!

    In this half-day workshop, learn how you can leverage the popular React web framework to implement your SharePoint Framework customizations. React is used by Microsoft across Office 365, including SharePoint, to build consistent experiences. You will learn how to not only leverage React in your SharePoint Framework components, but also how to leverage the provided Fabric React controls used by the SharePoint team as well as community control contributions as well.

    In this workshop, users will learn how to get started quickly with PowerApps to create rich forms and apps complete with an Microsoft Office-like experience.
    • Users will learn how to create an app or form from scratch for use in the web or on mobile platforms.
    • Discover how to use built-in connections to connect PowerApps to cloud services such as Office 365 and OneDrive, and on-premises systems such as SharePoint.
    • Detailed comparison of PowerApps and InfoPath.

    This workshop will also discuss how to work smarter and more efficiently by automating workflows across the most common apps and services.
    •  Users will learn how to build, manage, and administrator Flows in your environment.
    •  Learn to create Flows from scratch or by using pre-built templates in the visual designer.
    •  Discover how to connect Flow to over 100 data sources.
    •  Detailed comparison of SharePoint Designer workflows and Flow.

    The future of SharePoint is exciting, and the addition of PowerApps and Flow can help to address the complex business processes faced by today’s business teams.

    PowerApps is a service for building and using custom business apps, forms, and flexible connections to data. It is Microsoft’s successor to InfoPath and brings modern forms capabilities to dozens of data services with O365 and SharePoint at the top of the list.

See how PowerApps can replace customizations previously done in SharePoint Designer by power-users or with JS Link or other client-side customizations by Developers. Walk through a variety of scenarios where PowerApps extends or integrates with SharePoint.

  • WRK402 -Beyond Microsoft Teams Deployment: How to Roll Out A Sustainable Adoption Program in 90 Days

    Learn how to inspire, motivate, and drive sustainable Microsoft Teams user adoption across your organization while proactively enforcing operational governance.

    With built-in integration with the full Office 365 stack, it is easier than ever for end-users to create a team and start collaborating.

    But if that’s the case, why is your organization’s user adoption rate for Microsoft Teams so much lower than it is for Outlook?

    The truth is email is ingrained and changing user habits is difficult. Studies show that only about 34% of users are willing to use new technology rollouts within the enterprise. To make the most of your Office 365 investment, it is critical that your users take advantage of Microsoft Teams' full capabilities to address their day-to-day business needs. The key to drive excitement, organizational buy-in and adoption is being able to provide relevant, business-contextual applications that drive consistent, sustainable usage.

    Join this interactive workshop to learn how to roll out a sustainable adoption program in 90 days and positively impact organizational culture.

    This interactive workshop will cover:
    - What is Microsoft Teams and its role in today’s digital workplace?
    - How Microsoft Teams can excite and inspire users by supporting their daily business activities.
    - How to make it easy for everyone to maximize Microsoft Teams while ensuring organizational governance and policies are enforced.
    - Strategies for preventing information overload, data sprawl, shadow IT and more.
    - How to establish a holistic learning, knowledge sharing and support structure.
    - How to create and deliver a 90-day sustainable adoption program that facilitates change, empowers users and enables knowledge sharing within the organization.

  • WRK602 - Leveraging React for SharePoint Framework Projects

    When building SharePoint Framework solutions, regardless if they are client-side web parts or UI extensions, there is a visual component to these controls. While you could implement these interfaces by hand yourself, why not take advantage of a modern web framework? Frameworks make data binding, event handling and state management so much easier!

    In this half-day workshop, learn how you can leverage the popular React web framework to implement your SharePoint Framework customizations. React is used by Microsoft across Office 365, including SharePoint, to build consistent experiences. You will learn how to not only leverage React in your SharePoint Framework components, but also how to leverage the provided Fabric React controls used by the SharePoint team as well as community control contributions as well.
