I’m presenting a SharePoint development session on social at SharePoint Saturday Belgium 2013 end of April. I’m still in the brainstorming phase but below is the abstract – so if you have something specific you want to see in the session – leave a comment;
Session abstract: Enterprise social networks allow you share best practices within organizations, identify co-workers with particular expertise, exchange knowledge and work more efficiently together on projects , but they can also be a lot of fun. Microsoft has made some significant investments in social capabilities with SharePoint Server 2013. In this session we will explore the different social capabilities in SharePoint 2013 and show how to build a SharePoint app which leverages social and search features to build your own "Hot or Not" app. Technologies covered in this session include the new Social and Search REST APIs in SharePoint 2013, the SharePoint app framework, Azure , Windows 8 and Windows Phone 8 ... but it is mostly about having some fun to build a social app. Warning: session is heavy on code ... and pretty girls.
