Here we go again! The conferences are piling up one after another now when we have our new and shiny toy (=SharePoint 2013). For me personally this is an exciting time and gives me the opportunity to travel, meet old and new friends, to network and first and foremost learn more about SharePoint. A lot of us are currently experimenting with the beta bits, actively running some projects on it and just wondering how it will work when Microsoft finally will make the golden master. The conferences gives you the opportunity to hear about the latest news, learn about some features that you haven’t got a chance to explore yet, learn from those who has been working with this new product for months and even years and also hear a different perspective of others experiences compared to yours.
I have three planned conferences for the next couple of months and a couple of user group meetings (where the interest has been tremendous!).
SharePoint and Exchange Forum 2012 – October 22-23, Stockholm
The first conference to kick off this season is the largest yearly SharePoint conference in Scandinavia – SharePoint and Exchange Forum. It’s hosted by Office 365 MVP and my good friend Göran Husman, and he has been doing this conference since the dinosaurs walked the earth. Last year I thought the conference really had a fantastic bunch of speakers and this year it will be even better! I will do two sessions this year (but why do I always get my slots the day after the big party, Beatrice!!!).
Office Web Apps Server – all you need to know
This is a session where we dig into the new Office Web Apps Server (or WAC server) to see how it works, how it’s configured etc. We’ll discuss why Microsoft decided to make it into its own server product and how it can integrate with other servers (except SharePoint) such as Exchange.
SharePoint Apps – An introduction for developers
This developer session will be an introductory SharePoint 2013 Apps development session. We’ll talk about why we would like to build Apps, the basic concepts and then of course build an app or two. My mate Eric Schupps will also do an App development session and we’ll make sure that you will benefit from visiting both of our sessions.
SharePoint Conference 2012 – November 12-15, Las Vegas
The SharePoint Conference 2012 is by far the largest conference this year and it will be the “coming out party” for SharePoint 2013. Everyone will be there – vice presidents, product group members, MCA’s, MCM’s, MVP’s…just everyone! Even though the Preview is out I expect to see some really cool stuff shown in the keynotes and sessions. I’m going there, and not speaking, with my great team from Connecta and we’ll do all that we can to suck in as much information as possible.
SharePoint and Projects Conference Adriatics, November 28, Zagreb, Croatia
This will be my first time at SPC Adriatics and I was invited by my good friend and SharePoint MVP Toni Frankola to speak here. This conference also has a great line-up of speakers and it’s going to be an intense day for everyone to learn the latest about SharePoint 2013. This time around I’ll do an upgrade/IT-Pro session.
SharePoint 2013 – The upgrade story
This session will cover what you need to do an upgrade from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013, You’ll learn the upgrade planning, methods and execution through a number of demos. During the session we will do a live upgrade from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint 2013. We’ll also cover the Site Collection upgrade previews and health checks, which allows the site collection owner to determine when they are ready to move on to the new version.
I hope to meet you out there on a conference shortly! Take care.

2010-06-01 Devsum 2010
It’s been almost a week since the International SharePoint Conference ended, the first of its kind – and what a conference it was!
I was honored to be part of the developer track, together with top-notch speakers and developers such as Andrew Connell, Ben Robb, Eric Schupps, Matthew McDermott, Mirjam van Olst, Paul Schaeflein, Todd Carter and Waldek Mastykarz. We’ve been working together on this “project” for a couple of months having weekly calls trying to build a solution that we would use for the developer track. I really think that we did a good job and that we covered a lot of the important pieces in a SharePoint project – that normally isn’t covered on conferences. And I do hope that you who attended it, enjoyed the track and what we tried to show you.
Everything that we built and presented is available for download. We’ve created a CodePlex project where we have uploaded the functional specs, all the session demos and the final solutions demoed. Go grab the stuff here: http://spkbase.codeplex.com. And if you have any comments or questions – use the CodePlex discussion features and let the discussion start.
Waldek and I started the dev track by building a couple of Visual Studio Extensions. After some initial problems with the Visual Studio Gallery site we finally got them published. Just search for “ISC” in the Extension Manager. And if you wait just a couple of more days – all this will be integrated into CKS:Dev.
Next year, our amazing host Steve Smith, will host the SharePoint Evolution Conference 2013. I would not miss it for the world!
In less than a month the greatest SharePoint conference on this side of the pond will take place in London - the International SharePoint Conference (ISC). The ISC is the new name for the conference held in London and previously called Best Practices Conference and Evolutions Conference. This will actually be my first year at the conference, but I always wanted to go there - and now I'm one of the speakers in the fantastic line up!
This conference will not be just an ordinary conference - instead of having the traditional one hour demo sessions we will over the course of three days go from a functional specification to a deployable solution. The sessions will vary in length from less than one hour to a couple of hours long. There will be two parallel tracks like this - one focused on development topics and one focused on IT-Pro stuff.
I will together with some fantastic SharePoint MVP colleagues and friends participate in a couple of sessions ranging from Visual Studio extensibility, to BCS and Managed Metadata thingies. It will be a blast presenting and I do think that the audience will enjoy this show. So, if you haven't already booked your tickers - now is the time!
Se you there!
Back home after a few days in Berlin for the European SharePoint Conference 2011. It was a great conference with good speakers and really nice attendees. It was three days full of sessions, expert panels, shoot-outs and SharePoint fun! Thanks to everyone who was there (especially those who came to my sessions :-) and the team behind the conference! And as always it great to meet up with the SharePoint MVP's, MCM's and now even MCA's!
During the attendee dinner the conference team announced the dates for the next European SharePoint Conference, which is set to the first week in December 2012. This one will not be in Berlin, but more likely in Barcelona, Paris or Copenhagen (Barcelona is the one everyone cheered for, so my guess is that the other two are out of question :-)
For this conference I did two development presentations. I've done similar sessions before but this time I changed them into be even more based on best practices and experiences from the field, since we're quite a bit into the product cycle. I got good feedback on it and in some of the sessions I attended I noticed the same approach from the speakers. For you who either didn't attend my sessions or didn't have time to write down all the code samples in your notebooks - you can find the presentations on the conference web site and you can find the code samples here:
I'm planning (note planning - no promises) on doing a couple of follow up posts on specifics in the demos.
This fall is going to be pretty busy in terms of conferences and presentations and I'll have my fair share. Here's what I've planned for this fall, so far.
Webinar: No Farm Solution in sight!
On Tuesday the 6th of September I will do a webinar discussing SharePoint Online and Office 365 and how you can build solutions using SharePoint Online, Silverlight, Windows Azure and more without creating any farm solutions:
When and where: 6th of September at 11:00 CET. The interwebz
SharePoint in the cloud!? Does it work?
This is a breakfast seminar that my company Connecta is arranging with Cornerstone where I will present Office 365 and SharePoint Online specifically. I will show you how SharePoint Online works and what you need to do to get it to work, and I will also share our experiences moving from an on-premise solution with SharePoint and Exchange to the Office 365 platform.
When and where: 16th of September at 8:00 or 13:00. Stockholm at the Connecta office

SharePoint and Exchange Forum 2011, Stockholm
The SharePoint and Exchange Forum is the SharePoint and Exchange conference in Scandinavia and of course if you're in the vicinity you should head on over to Stockholm. This year Göran Husman and the crew has managed to get a really good line of presenters - it will be a blast! I will present one session at this conference, and it will not be a development topic, but instead a session about Service Application Federation - the good, the bad and the ugly!
When and where: 14-15 November. Stockholm, Sweden

I hope to see you on the road somewhere!
I'm proud to announce that I have been selected to speak at the European SharePoint Conference, held in Berlin 17-20 October 2011. This is the largest SharePoint conference in Europe this year and there are plenty of good speakers and sessions, so get your seat while they still are available.
I will have two sessions:
- Integrating Office 365 and Windows Azure - Tuesday, 18th at 11:15 This session focuses on how to extend Office 365 using Windows Azure.
- Playing in the Sandbox - Wednesday, 29th at 11:15 One of my favorite topics; understand the SharePoint 2010 Sandbox and overcome its limitations.
I will be bringing a few copies of my book, so make sure that you attend my sessions and have a chance to win one.
Webinar on developing for Office 365 and SharePoint Online
I will also have a webinar, next week on Wednesday, that you can join to get up to speed on developing for Office 365 and SharePoint Online. Make sure you don't miss out on it. Register online here.
Back in the saddle from another TechDays event here in Sweden. This year it was all about the cloud! It was as always a great show and an awesome party. Thank you Microsoft, all presenters, all attendees and sponsors.
I did two sessions - or actually one session divided into two segments about Office 365 and Windows Azure. I tried to squeeze in as much cloud technology as I could in a one big demo. For those who attended - I hope you enjoyed it. If you want to go back to the slides or take a look at the demo code you can find them below. The sessions were also recorded so you can enjoy them in full glory (keep an eye on the TechDays site for more information).
Presentations and code
I was also interviewed after my sessions by Peter Nicks from Microsoft - and here's the video of that:
See ya next year...
In less than a week Sweden's largest Microsoft conference will take place in Örebro - TechDays 2011, same place as last year. The conference is already fully booked with 1.700 participants, but there's a waiting list! The theme of the conference is "The Cloud Story".
This year I will do two sessions, or rather one long sessions split into two parts on Office 365 + Windows Azure. This will be over two hours full of great demoes and information. I've built one big demo that will combine the powers of Office 365 (SharePoint Online, Exchange Online, Lync Online) and Windows Azure (web and worker roles, SQL Azure, AppFabric). We'll also touch on technologies such as Silverlight, WPF, Open XML and WIF. So if you think this is interesting, if you're considering moving your stuff into the cloud or just want to have fun - then these are the sessions to attend.
- Tuesday march 29th at 11:00: Office 365 + Windows Azure, del 1
- Tuesday march 29th at 13:15: Office 365 + Windows Azure, del 2
My sessions will require some interactivity from you - so if your coming bring your cell phone or laptop ready to browse the web. Participation will be rewarded!
After each session I will hang out next to the session room to answer all your questions on these topics or any other things you have on your mind. You can also meet me in the Cloud Emergency Area (aka Ask the experts) or at the Connecta stand.
See you there!
I just came home from a great trip to Singapore and the Southeast Asia SharePoint conference. It has been a great adventure travelling that far and meet so many SharePoint fans, Southeast Asia is really hot. The conference has been perfectly arranged by Debbie, Randy and Steve at a great location. Thank you! A new conference in the area was announced during the closing session, and if I'm allowed I'll gladly come back! Hopefully I can spend a few more days here in Singapore then. One thing that really stood out in this conference part from the actual SharePoint content, the speakers and the great people here was the great local food for dinner and tea breaks - love it! As always great to see the real person behind the tweets and the twitter images.
I had two sessions for this conference; Playing in the Sandbox and SharePoint + Silverlight, new BFFs. Both sessions had a good number of attendees and I want to thank those who attended and came up with good questions. If you missed the sessions or just want to see the slides one more time you will find them below. I also have a download of the source code of the demos below.
Here's a collection of a few images that I shot during the conference:
Here are the presentations on Slideshare:
