I just returned from SharePoint Saturday Redmond that was held on September 21st, 2013 at the Microsoft Redmond Campus. The day was busy and productive as I had anticipated it would be. Vendor row was full of vendor swag and lively conversation. We had a great line up of speakers presenting on a variety of SharePoint related topics. I sat in a few sessions when I wasn’t presenting my own. Jennifer Mason of Rackspace had an interesting session on Using SharePoint to Build an Interactive HR Onboarding Experience. Naomi Moneypenny of Manyworlds also had a thought provoking session on Enterprise Social Graphing. I presented two sessions on SharePoint 2013. “Adoption Tactics; Why Your End Users and Project Managers Will Rave Over SharePoint 2013” and “5 Inspiring Reasons to Manage Projects on SharePoint” Jean Paul, SharePoint MVP had a nice recap of my project management session here. I had packed room for both sessions with engaged attendees. Some of the attendees informed me that it was their very first SharePoint Saturday! We definitely had some fun and “turned a new leaf” on SharePoint Adoption in my session after lunch. I mentioned a few things that I promised I would publish. In my morning session on Project Management on SharePoint 2013, I showed how JS Link can give you a nice looking project roll-up dashboard. Here is the link on how to accomplish that: http://www.abhishan.com/create-project-dashboard-with-sharepoint-2013-js-link/
I also promised to post both slide decks. Happy viewing!
