Below is the link to my “SharePoint, PowerApps, Flow and Azure Functions” presentation from this year’s DogFood Conference. I had a room packed with attendees interested in trying to figure out what all this new stuff is all about. Look forward to future posts from me on these topics!

Speaking at DogFood Con 2016

I just learned I’ve been selected to be one of the speakers at this year’s Microsoft DogFood Conference! My topic will be:

SharePoint, PowerApps, Flow and Azure Functions - What Does it All Mean?

I’ve given talks at DogFood in years past (2015, 2013, 2012) and have enjoyed it each time. I’m looking forward to this year, and you should too!

Don’t forget to install InfoPath

Today’s the day when InfoPath gets it’s first official punch in the gut – Office 2016 has been released today, and as promised does not include InfoPath as part of the install.

But as we know (and will learn more about on October 10th) InfoPath ain’t dead yet.

So, after your Office 2016 install finishes, be sure to take the additional step of separately downloading the standalone InfoPath 2013 install.

Up Up and Away at SPS Columbus 2015


As you might have guessed by now, this year’s SharePoint Saturday Columbus was super-hero themed! All the speakers were given capes, and asked to wear the T-Shirt of their favorite super hero. I decided to choose Dragon Fly Jones from the 90’s sitcom Martin. : )

In addition to the fun stuff, SPS Columbus was also packed full of great info. Notable talks included Mike Smith’s discussion regarding REST, Seb Matthews Taking Your Business to the Cloud, and Doug Hemminger with Visual Studio and the Office365 REST API.

In my session we had good conversation re: Office integration, OneNote+SharePoint, and Yammer governance. And thankfully my demo’s went very smoothly. : )

Check out the other speakers super-hero pics on the BuckeyeSPUG Facebook page. My slides can be found below, or on slideshare.

Visual Studio 2015 and PowerShell

I think I could learn to like having a PowerShell window right inside Visual Studio 2015 for my SharePoint scripting. : )

What about you? Have you tried this yet? Is it as good as the other options for doing PowerShell in SharePoint?
