    Speaking at the European SharePoint Conference 2018 and free discount for you!


    I am delighted to announce I have been selected to speak at the European SharePoint Conference 2018. This event will take place in Copenhagen, Denmark from the 26th to the 29th of November.

    I will be speaking about “Migrate your custom components to the SharePoint Framework”.

    It’s the 3rd model Microsoft has come with to customize SharePoint in less than 5 years. You may still have add-ins/apps or even solutions running in production and you’re asking yourself what to do about all that?

    Do you have to start all over again? And for how long that new model will last?

    We’ll see together what reasons could push you to chose one model or another. Do you need to migrate everything now? How to build applications that will be easy to migrate to the framework if you’re on “old versions” of SharePoint? And how to leverage existing components you’ve developed.

    This session is primarily meant for developers, architects and deciders.

    Although this is a paid event, you can get a discount of 100E with the code ESPC18SPK!!

    I am truly honored to be part of this excellent speakers line up and can’t wait to be at the event to attend some of the sessions myself!

    I hope I will see you there! Information and registration https://www.sharepointeurope.com

    Speaking at SharePoint Fest Seattle 2018

    SharePoint Fest Seattle 2018 is happening from August 20th to 24th. This event will feature 2 days pre-conference workshops and 3 days of conference. You can find more information about it on the website. I’ve been selected amongst 74 other speakers (including people from Microsoft product teams!!) to present this year two sessions:

    AZR203 - Azure Functions In The Real World: Lessons Learned & Best Practices

    “Azure Functions is one of the most powerful new solutions provided by Microsoft. Customers are leveraging it, and it has generally been available for a year now quietly delivering value across hundreds of projects. Many of you are probably asking yourself questions like “are functions mature enough?” or “are they production ready?” or even “is the right tooling here yet?” when considering this option for your projects.”

    AZR302 – Microsoft Graph and SharePoint Framework under steroids with Azure Functions

    “Modern development means client side first, backend second. However, there are still cases where you might need some backend processing, for long running operations, heavy computing consuming tasks or security concerns.

    During that session we will learn how you can build server-less solutions to support modern development. We will determine together when it makes sense to offload things on the backend and when is does not. We will have a lot of examples working with the Microsoft Graph as well as the SharePoint Framework.

    Finally, we will see that server-less does not mean hacky solutions and that proper continuous integration and deployment processes can be implemented.”

    I’m truly honored to be part of this prestigious event with so many other great SharePoint/Office 365 speakers. If you haven’t booked your ticket to the event yet, go ahead!

    See you there.

    Guest on the Microsoft Graph Community call (June): The Online Meeting Solution

    I must admit I’ve not been on page lately for the blog posts. However, I had the privilege (among other great speakers) to present during the Microsoft Graph Community call for the month of June.

    Microsoft Graph Community calls are online webinar organized by the Microsoft Graph Team. The Team usually presents announcements and then allows time for community speakers to presents discoveries, real life solutions and lessons learnt with the Microsoft Graph. Those call are free to attend and if you’re not already registered, here is all the information you need.

    During this edition I was presenting a real-life solution that we (2toLead) built and deployed to more than 100 000 users. This solution helps the customer be more efficient when organizing online meetings by creating the invitations in Exchange, creating a structured space in SharePoint to capture key elements (agenda, tasks, comments…) and creating a Skype online meeting so people can attend virtually.

    This solution relies heavily on the Microsoft Graph and during the project we learnt a few tricks I’m sharing during the demonstration that could be useful to any of you building solutions that take advantage of the Microsoft Graph.

    Here is the link to watch the recording (that also contains awesome demonstration with Flow and PowerApps).

    Guest on the Microsoft 365 Dev Podcast: Microsoft Graph Open Extensions and Calendering

    Last week I had the honor to be a guest on the Microsoft 365 Dev Podcast hosted by Jeremy Thake and Paul Schaeflein.

    It was the second time I was invited on a podcast (the first one being in French about devops), this is a fun exercise where the content is delivered as a discussion between the hosts and the guests.

    During this episode we discussed about two main topics:

    • The Microsoft Graph open extensions (currently starting a project using those at 2toLead)
    • The Calendar capabilities in the Microsoft Graph (and I shared a few tricks that might interested you if you plan on using those APIs)

    I’d like to thank Jeremy and Paul for giving me this opportunity and for the good conversations.
