This week I had the honor to present three sessions at the German SharePoint Conference in Erding. It was the first time that I ever had three sessions at just on the conference, which was pretty challenging but I enjoyed it.
Day 1 – The SharePoint and Office 354 To Go: A Mobile Development Workshop
It was the second time that Bill Ayers (@spdoctor) and I presented together. In his “Going Mobile with the Office 365 APIs” workshop Bill asked me to take the responsive web design part of his all day workshop. It was just a small part, but I’m always glad to be the side kick of the doctor.
Day 2 – From Design to a modern style guide
The session was on how you will be able to transform you a design in a living style guide. A style guide that serves designers, developers and other people that like to see the design in a living environment such as the web browser. Rather than only on a picture.
In addition to this session I previewed the style guide application I built special for SharePoint Branding. This sample can be found on GitHub and is named Simple Style. It is currently an Alpha Version. I will provide more information soon.
Day 3 – Branding deployment for Office 365 and SharePoint 2013/2016
In this session I shared my experience from the last projects on how to bring the branding assets to the cloud and on-premises.
The session contained two PnP Samples too:
- SharePoint PowerShell Commandlets
A great collection of useful helpers not only for branding deployment, but as well as keep your development environment up to date.
- Deploy binary file using SharePoint hosted add-in
I provided this sample a couple of months for the Office 365 PNP collection of samples
In additon to the slides the source code is available to download in GitHub
Overall it was great!
I really enjoyed to speak the second time in Germany, meet some old friends and meet some really great new people.
I was very well organized and the perfect spot to exchange experiences of our everyday work life.
