During this conference, I will hold a full day branding workshop gives you an insight into modern web design and development covering the following topics.
Last weekend I had the great opportunity to speak at the SharePoint Saturday Stockholm for the very first time. This event is really great because I already attended the last two events too, and it was a great time to visit this beautiful city as well as meet some friends.
On Saturday I had my session in a packed full room and sorry for the people who had to stand at the back. A big thanks to all the attendees.
Today I had the great pleasure to record a webinar for SharePoint Europe. Actually, it was not a new session, it more hat the purpose to show people how I develop now in SharePoint. Especially how my branding workflow nowadays looks like. I use now SASS for all my branding in SharePoint, because it has a lot of benefits in manner of consistency, reusability and fundability of CSS changes and adoption.[Read more]

Pretty honored to announce that I will speak at Europe’s largest SharePoint and office 365 event in Stockholm Sweden from 9th-12th November 2015.
I will be conducting a session on “Make SharePoint SASSy” aimed at Developers.
CSS can get overly complex and unwieldy very quickly—resulting in thousands of lines of CSS code across many files, yielding errors and becoming a maintenance nightmare! Believe me… there is a better way! SASS (“Syntactically Awesome Style Sheets”) is fast becoming the preferred approach in developing CSS! SASS is an extension to CSS that arms you with programming features, such as variables, functions, loops and many more. Join me to learn SASS and move from a complete novice to someone who knows where SASS fits and how to use it with SharePoint.
In this session, you will learn:
What SASS is and how to use it.
- How to use SASS to brand SharePoint without requiring lengthy deployments.
- How to create simple rich text editor styles using mix-ins and includes.
- How to apply a grid layout and make it responsive.
- How to structure your branding correctly to make it more maintainable.
- How CSS 4 fits into the picture and its effect on SASS.
If you want a comprehensive breakdown of the latest innovations on all workloads of Office 365, and SharePoint is one of them, including the inside scoop on SharePoint 2016 and Office 365 Next Gen Portals as well as practical, actionable advice on how to leverage the cloud, SharePoint, Yammer, the Office Graph, Delve and much more to the best of your ability then European SharePoint Conference 2015 is a must in your calendar!
