The Future of SharePoint Event

SharePoint 2016 is nearly upon us. We’re in those awkward teenaged-like years between RTM, which was March 14, and General Availability, which is May 4th. Microsoft has told us a lot about SharePoint 2016, and there’s a lot to be excited about. To get the next chapter in the story, tune in May 4th for the “The Future of SharePoint” event. This event is free, and will happen across the Internet on your monitor of choice. You don’t need to travel all the way to San Francisco, get a hotel, fight the traffic, and sit in a crowded venue to see what exciting things Microsoft has planned for our beloved SharePoint. You can sign up and tune in to this event and get it all that way, in your pajamas and your favorite bunny slippers.

I’ll watching and I might take a stab at live tweeting my thoughts while Mr. Teper and friends are spreading the good news. If you want my up to the minute reactions, follow me on Twitter.

I’m very curious to see what Microsoft has up their collective sleeves. Join me in the Future of SharePoint event on May 4th.

Podcast 287 - Black Art of PowerShell

This week's podcast has a lot of PowerShell topics. But shouldn't any good podcast? I cover how to write good PowerShell functions, the rules and regulations behind PowerShell, and an easier way to use PowerShell with Office 365. I finish up by making fun of Microsoft Edge and talking about my Microsoft Band. I also give a tease on a new gadget I've purchased.

Podcast 285 - Work of the Devil

This week's show features an interview with one of the founders of the company that graces us with SPDocKit, Toni Frankola. He stays up late in his native Croatia and spends some time with us telling us all about how great SPDocKit is. Besides talking to Toni I also talk about how you can get free on-prem SharePoint CALs if you have licenses for Office 365, and what to do to your SQL Server if you have a high performance workload, like our beloved SharePoint.

Free SharePoint Webinar on Backup and Recovery

On Thursday March 24th, 2016, the fine folks at Petri.com and Veeam have invited me to spend a few moments with you folks talking about SharePoint Backup and Recovery in a free webinar. I get 20 – 25 minutes to tell you all I know about the subject, then the Veeam people will jump in and tell you all the wonderful things their products will do. At the end, there will be a Q&A session. You supply the Qs, I’ll supply the As, or at least make up something plausible. As if that wasn’t enough, one lucky winner will be awarded a Surface Pro 4 during the Q&A session. Second prize is a big hug from me.

Use this link to sign up. It’s free, what do you have to lose? If nothing else, there will be some good heckling to be had.

Podcast 283 - Cognitive Dissonance

This podcast started out with a bang. We start off talking about the little story of how Microsoft announced that SQL Server will run on Linux next year. Then we cover some anticlimactic topics, like a new responsive UI package for SharePoint on-prem, a new version of Azure AD Connect, a release candidate for SQL 2016, and what Shane's up to these days.
