Speaking Engagements – Autumn 2012

Print | posted on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 10:34 PM

It’s once again silly season with SharePoint conferences (when isn’t it? :)) but this autumn it’s a bit more fun as we are able to discuss SharePoint 2013. I’ll be doing a few events over the next couple months.

SharePoint and Exchange Forum 2012 – Stockholm, Sweden. October 22-23.
This is a great event in a very cool place. Looking forward to going back to Stockholm for a few days and catching up again with some good friends and meeting some new ones. I’ll be presenting a couple of breakouts:

  • Host Named Site Collections: The Path to the Cloud
    IT-Pro, level 300
    The single most important change from an infrastructure perspective in SharePoint 2013. Yes really, even thou it's not really a change, for those of you who have been using them for ages...
    But for the majority of SharePoint practitioners it's a significant step change, in terms of how you think about logical architecture design, how you talk to customers, and how you implement site collections. This session will cover the improvements to Host Named Site Collections in SharePoint 2013 along with the design rationale and key consideration points for your deployment
  • Request Management in SharePoint 2010
    IT-Pro, level 300
    SharePoint 2013 includes a compelling new Request Management service, which gives much greater control over how incoming requests are processed. Learn about how Request Management enables request routing to ensure server health, request prioritization, and the implementation of server machine pools for large deployments. Understand the key components of the Request Manager and RM Routing, RM Pools and Execution Groups. This session will demonstrate how to configure Request Management for a number of key deployment scenarios.

 

SharePoint Conference 2012 – Las Vegas, Nevada. November 12-15.
The big daddy. Promises to be *the* community event of the year. I’ll be doing various activities related to the MCSM and MCA programs as well as customer events and I’ll also be presenting a couple of breakouts:

  • User Profile Synchronization Best Practices in SharePoint Server 2013
    Discover the changes and new capabilities in the foundational service for Social deployments of SharePoint Server 2013 and get the real deal on configuring User Profile Synchronization in this demo and best practices heavy session. This session will cover the architecture of the User Profile Service Application, the new AD Direct Mode and provide a walkthrough of the configuration requirements and setup.  Understand the key architectural considerations in terms of high availability, scalability and geographic deployments. Also covered will be general UPA related best practices in terms of synchronization, policy and privacy and leveraging social features inside the enterprise This session will be split 60/40 between demonstrations and lecture.  
  • Request Management in SharePoint 2013
    SharePoint 2013 introduces a powerful new capability called Request Management, which allows SharePoint to understand more about, and control the handling of incoming requests within the farm and across farms. Learn how Request Management enables request throttling and routing to ensure server health, request prioritization, and the implementation of server machine pools for large deployments. Understand the key components of the Request Manager and RM Routing, RM Pools and Execution Groups. This session will also demonstrate how to configure Request Management for a number of key deployment scenarios.

 

SharePoint Connections Amsterdam 2012 – Amsterdam, Netherlands. November 20-21.
Right after we return home from SPC we’ll be in Amsterdam for a new event (albeit with a familiar name). I’ll be presenting a couple of breakouts:

  • Rational Guide to SharePoint Server 2013 User Profile Synchronization
    Discover the changes and new capabilities in the foundational service for Social deployments of SharePoint Server 2013 and get the real deal on configuring User Profile Synchronization in this demo and best practices heavy session. This session will cover the architecture of the User Profile Service Application, the new AD Direct Mode and provide a walkthrough of the configuration requirements and setup.  Understand the key architectural considerations in terms of high availability, scalability and geographic deployments. Also covered will be general UPA related best practices in terms of synchronization, policy and privacy and leveraging social features inside the enterprise This session will be split 60/40 between demonstrations and lecture.
  • Request Management in SharePoint 2013
    SharePoint 2013 includes a compelling new Request Management service, which gives much greater control over how incoming requests are processed.

I hope to see some of you at these events. We are also in the middle of planning out additional SUGUK meetings for the north and Scotland. Stay tuned for more on that in the near future.

We're based in Aberdeen, Scotland, hope you enjoy your future visit to this part of the UK, that is if you're not too tired after your whirlwind trips to Stockholm and Vegas :)
