Talk, then sit. Then walk, then sit. Then walk more and sit. Rinse and repeat.
Today was all about sessions here at MS Ignite on Day 2 and here are some of the talks that I attended during the day:
Keep your OneDrive Content Safe and Secure
Great session given on the topics of the new auditing and monitoring features coming to SharePoint on premises and Online to show how policies and other items can be created to keep users from accidentally leaking important work data to unauthorized users.
Really enjoyed the mobile device features to enable or disable apps on devices to make sure content is being shared correctly
Understand the Impact of the future of SharePoint
This roundtable session was given by 3 MVP’s to discuss what they see coming up in the future of the product and how this will affect customers. Many people shared stories from their companies in a Q and A format
Dive into Microsoft SharePoint Server 2016 Upgrade and Migration
Upgrade session given by Todd Klindt and Jason Himmelstein over the different areas of focus to keep in mind when moving to the new 2016 version. Also had great tips and tricks for people who were making the move to 2016 from either 2010 or even the 2007 version of the product.
Explore MS SharePoint Server 2016 and beyond
Great session given by Bill Baer and Troy from the product team describing bore of the new things in feature pack one coming in November along with the road map of all things SharePoint from then on. Also he mentioned that 2016 will NOT be the last on premises version of SharePoint, so it’s nice to know that we will all have something to work harder on for the next few years. 🙂
Dive into MS Office 365 and SharePoint Hybrid Scenarios
Interesting Session given by Bill and Rick laying out some of the scenarios and steps to keep in mind when going from on premises to connecting things to the cloud. Discussed things like My Sites and One Drive in the cloud along with things to keep in mind when connecting search.
Also gave several great demos on how users perspective changes once things move to online dealing with video content and Delve as well.
Learn how to build a fast, responsive SharePoint Portal in SharePoint Online
Cool session given by some of the O365 team to describe how they have gone from working with regular SharePoint on prem to O365 development practices to try and make the pages of the new SharePoint 2016 and SharePoint Online load as fast as possible with minimal overhead.
Learn about Office 365 groups and how to use them
Great short talk given to introduce the idea of Groups and the presenter gave four scenarios how users might go about using them. It was nice to see this translated into real world scenarios so this made it easier to understand
Wow that was a long day, and I will be ready to rest and go at it again for day 3.
