Well for the first day of ignite, I can pretty much sum it all up in one word. Wow!
To begin the day with the keynote of the conference in an arena with 20,000 other people was truly amazing. If you would like to watch a replay of it, you can find it here:
Then from there, it’s an even more frantic day moving from session to session.
One great talk I attended was the roadmap update for SharePoint 2016 given by Jeff Teper and several other MVP’s. the link to this presentation is here:
Some great announcements coming out from this talk were for me the great ability now to do zero downtime patching in SharePoint 2016 with a 4 or even a 2 server farm. People will be able to do this with the new min role combo roles that they have coming out in November of 2016.
Another area of interest for me will be all of the new functionality and features given to Power Apps and Flow as well as more features being added to the mobile apps for SharePoint and others.
love the fact that Windows Server 2016 is now released to the public and out of tech preview! This means that everyone will now be able to bring up farms and other resources on all the 2016 products.
There were so many Azure related announcements, it made my head spin, so I will try to find a summary link and post it below.
Another highlight of the day was seeing the future of a lot of technologies in the innovation keynote. The link to that session is below:
They even brought Deon Sanders out on the stage to talk about playing fantasy football with an AI. Now that’s pretty cool.
As the videos and links to other talks become available, I will add them to this post. Now it’s time to start day 2 of ignite.
