It has been a couple years since I last attended / spoke at Dog Food Conference, but on Nov 21-22, 2013 I’ll be speaking at Dog Food Conference 2013 here in Columbus, OH. For those of you confused by the name of the conference (no it’s not about dog food), read up on the concept of dogfooding . This conference has a history of great sessions from local and regional speakers and I look forward to being a part of it once again. Registration is now open (registration link) and is expected to sell out quickly. Reserve your spot today.
Title: The Evolution of Social in SharePoint
Audience and Level: IT Pro / Architect, Intermediate
Abstract: Activities, newsfeed, community sites, following… these are just some of the big changes introduced to the social experience in SharePoint 2013. This class will discuss the evolution of the social components since SharePoint 2010, the architecture (distributed cache, microfeed, etc.) that supports the social experience, Yammer integration, and proper planning considerations when deploying social capabilities (personal sites, SkyDrive Pro and distributed cache). This session will include demos of the social newsfeed, community sites, and mentions. Attendees should have an intermediate knowledge of SharePoint 2010 or 2013 administration.
