BIWUG session 13 december 2012– Fun with SharePoint 2013 Social, the REST API and Windows 8

Unfortunately the next BIWUG event is already fully booked but if you add yourself to the waitlist we might try to get you in when cancellations come in. Topics on the agenda are:

  • Office 2013 and SharePoint 2013 integration: There is a close integration between Office and SharePoint. In this session you will discover the integration between Office Applications (Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Access, and Outlook) and SharePoint. We will also talk about real collaboration with SharePoint. (Speaker: Patrick Sledz)
  • Fun with SharePoint Social, REST API and Windows 8: This is adaptation of a session delivered at SharePoint Conference 2012 in Las Vegas  - Windows 8 Metro Style Apps offer a rich user experience that is perfect for exposing data from SharePoint 2013. In this talk, we'll make use of the new SharePoint 2013 REST API to retrieve data from SharePoint and visualize it in a custom Windows Store app. We will built a Windows 8 App which integrates with the new social and search features in SharePoint Server 2013. Finally we will take a look at what is needed to deploy an app to the Windows store. (Speaker: Joris Poelmans)
