Telerik’s Svetozar Georgiev 2013: A Truly Special Year

 

 

Todd Anglin

 

Svetozar Georgiev CEO

The Telerik team rarely looks back. We instead focus ourselves on delivering exciting innovations for the future, which we truthfully find more interesting.

However, 2013 has been a truly special year. It is by far the most evolutionary and transformational in Telerik’s history. Besides the traditional roll out of new products like Application Analytics, Backend as a Service, and tons of features across the different product lines, we launched the "Telerik 3.0" project. This has been a massive effort to prepare the company for the next level of our evolution. An evolution of our product offering, an evolution of our organization, and an evolution of our service level. I can’t reveal more details at this moment as I don’t want to spoil the surprise, but look for exciting news in early 2014.

"Why evolve?" you might ask. Well, we all live in a dynamic and fascinating, yet challenging time. Our work—and your work as developers—has never been more complex and exciting. New platforms and devices pop-up every day. Technology giants jostle for supremacy seemingly every month. So what’s ahead for us?

The future is mobile, they say, but not only mobile. The Native vs. Hybrid dispute is becoming less and less relevant. Your new phone is more powerful than your old laptop. In order to tackle these new realities and stay relevant, you need to learn and use more technologies. You need to pick the right strategy for your applications since the "one-size-fits-all" approach no longer works.

But whatever your strategy is, Telerik will be there for you with tools and solutions to help you envision, build, test and deliver amazing applications across all platforms and devices.

Enjoy the holidays and stay tuned for more news from us in early 2014.

Best Practices and Practical Deployment Aspects of Business Intelligence with SharePoint 2013, SQL Server 2012 on Windows Server 2012

I am very lucky in that I have been accepted to present on Business Intelligence Best Practices at a few upcoming SharePoint Saturdays which I hope all of you will attend.

This session is primarily based on walking you through demos on the Design, Development and Deployment of Business Intelligence Objects following SharePoint Best Practices in all aspects from Design to Deployment methodologies of SharePoint 2013. This session will start with a very quick walk through the foundational aspects of Business intelligence when integrated with SharePoint along Best practices in the Design, Development and deployment of Business Intelligence solutions in SharePoint Server 2013, with SQL Server 2012, on Windows Server 2012 that will include Analysis Services Solutions, with PowerPivot, PowerView and Reporting Services, Excel and Visio Services.

Also, Norm and Ivan will walk through the governance issues surrounding the deployment of SharePoint 2013 in general and the Business Intelligence Aspects in specific. In addition, Norm will quickly explain practical paths for designing tabular models in PowerPivot and the SQL Server Data Tools environment. He will explain decision points such as hybrid approaches with Direct Query, and include best practices for automating data refresh in SharePoint and scheduling processing in Analysis Services.

The session includes a thorough demo of creating an Odata feed from SharePoint lists and SQL Azure to relate a date table for quickly showing aspects of time intelligence. The demo will continue by showing how to create partitions in SQL Server 2012 and schedule data refresh (with an interval of 15 minutes) using XMLA. Lastly, the team will discuss how to choose the right Business Intelligence tools to start using now so you can show immediate results while planning for the future evolution of your SharePoint Business Intelligence Dashboards.. All demos are built on Windows Server 2012, SQL Server 2012, and SharePoint Server 2013.

clip_image001I have been very blessed this year to be working on the Second edition of the Business Intelligence in Microsoft SharePoint 2013 with the illustrious group of Norman P. Warren, Mariano Teixeira Neto, John Campbell, Stacia Misner the author’s of the First edition Business Intelligence in Microsoft SharePoint 2010.

Norm currently works for Ancestry.com to help people discover, preserve and share their family history. Norm was previously a writer for PerformancePoint Server 2007 and SharePoint Server 2010 at Microsoft, and has written articles on PerformancePoint Server for the information worker, IT Pro, and SQL Server BI developer audiences. Norm has his Master’s degree in computer information technology and is currently earning his MBA with an emphasis in financial accounting.

Norm has an active member of the community to provide the right content about Microsoft business intelligence such the SharePoint BI poster (Visio (http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/p/?LinkId=167409). His past time is with his family, mountain biking, and sharing his passion of BI in SharePoint.

Norm will be joining me for the first two in an upcoming series of SharePoint Saturdays during the next few months. The first of this series is coming up on September 22nd 2012 in Redmond WA. at the Microsoft Conference Center. Where if you are like me and have a passion for all things Microsoft then you know its one of the best cities in the world ad I hope you will join us for this event and the place to register is http://spsred.eventbrite.com/

The second in the series will be held ion Bend OR. on October 6th 2012 at Central Oregon Community College in Bend, Oregon. If you were unable to join us in Redmond then this is the event we hope you can attend due to the numerous seasoned experts, MVPs and MCMs alike. Please don’t forget to register http://spsbend2012.eventbrite.com/

The last in the series leading up to the SharePoint Conference in Las Vegas Nevada will be held in Sacramento California on October 13th 2012 at the Woodlake Hotel near the Cal Expo in downtown Sacramento. I was fortunate enough to be the keynote speaker last year and the number of people attending and the excellent venue made this one of the highlights of my year of presenting at many SharePoint Saturdays of which I was privileged. Registration is open http://spssacramento.eventbrite.com/

Last I would like to thank the many sponsors that make all of the free SharePoint Saturday events possible:

Thank You to ALL our SPONSORS and VOLUNTEERS for making SharePoint Saturdays possible…

A Few SPField Types

I have included a list of SPField Types below that I use and hopefully help others. My apologies as I don’t remember the locations to cite in gathering this information its been sitting in an excel spreadsheet and my terribly efficient use of metadata on a FileShare of only SharePoint stuff with 261,666 documents. The fields that have a Type other than “Invalid” can be created by using the Add Method of the SPFieldCollection Object and passing the Name, FieldType (SPFieldType) is Required

#SFVSPUG Search and Enterprise Content Management
http://sfvspug.org/SitePages/Home.aspx 
This session discusses strategies and techniques for deploying taxonomies in SharePoint 2010 and also includes a discussion of how to jump-start a taxonomy project by using pre-built foundational taxonomies. How many of you have copied contents from File Shares only to find that you can still not find anything just not find it faster?

I will show with a few simple steps how to implement automatic tagging or in place tagging so you don’t have to wait for your next migration or force management to use s spreadsheet to identify every document by using Boolean search not just synonyms as part of your Term Set.

If you choose to only use the Enterprise Keyword Settings on every document library I will give you a script to enable this feature on every document library. If you choose to use your own site columns I will provide a script that will make your Content Type the primary and apply it to every document library, then show how to modify the search result refiners so that you can drill through your search results. You don’t have to wait to make search work today

Jon Flanders :: Building Native Mobile Apps with HTML5 and jQuery

Synopsis – HTML5 and JQuery are the cool new kids on the block for building Web Applications. People generally prefer native mobile apps over bookmarks in mobile browsers. Why not do both?

In this session you’ll see how you can use a native mobile shell on the popular mobile platforms (iOS, Andriod, and Windows Phone 7) to host an HTML5 application and how to interact with native APIs, handle offline mode, and deal with devices with different resolutions.

Bio – Jon is a member of the technical staff at MCW, where he focuses on connected systems technologies. Jon is most at home spelunking, trying to figure out how things work from the inside out. Jon is the author of RESTful.NET from O’Reilly,as well as Essential ASP for Addison-Wesley, and was a co-author of Mastering Visual Studio.NET for O’Reilly. Jon’s current major interest is helping people to understand the advantages of REST and how REST connects to products like SharePoint 2010. You can read his blog at http://www.rest-ful.net/

Session Title Speaker Name Session Abstract
Strategies for Deploying a Hybrid SharePoint Online and SharePoint On-Premise Solution Mo Omar Is your organization currently evaluating a move to the cloud but doesn’t know how to deal with their current on-premise SharePoint environment? During this session, we’ll discuss strategies on deploying a hybrid solution of SharePoint Online and SharePoint on-premise, architectural considerations, and tips on how to create a seamless experience between the two environments.
Office 365 and SharePoint Online – Do’s, Don’t’s and Wont’s James Tramel A closer look at office 365 and specifically SharePoint online, one of four components of 365.  From DNS to Security groups, branding to metadata, public to private, BCS to UPS, admin console to user solutions, search to service apps, site collection management to user management, quotas to storage .
PowerShell – For the SharePoint Administrator Rick Taylor Scripting languages have always been a part of the Administrator’s toolkit. Unfortunately, most OSITAs (Old School IT Admins) were averse to learning or even leveraging scripting in their duties. Come to this session to lose your fear and see how easy this scripting language is and demonstrate the most common tasks in the life of a SharePoint Administrator.
Administration Tips & Tricks Ellis Luboff Your SharePoint Farm Is Installed But The Users Have A Few Complaints!

"It’s only wafer thin!" – Large List Maintenance in SharePoint 2010 Michael Mukalian With SharePoint 2010, as has been said around the campfire, "5,000 is the new 2,000!" What does that mean? It means that we now need to be mindful of not just how many items are in our lists, but how our views are constructed as well because, well, it’s not as dramatic as the scene referenced in the title of this topic, but let’s just say it’s not really pretty. Today’s talk will be a combination discussion and walkthrough of the various ways of handling and managing a large number of items in a SharePoint list.

SharePoint for ASP.Net Developers

That’s great and all, but where do I put my code?
Greg Hurlman The market share for SharePoint has grown in leaps and bounds over the last few years, leading to many developers being told that they are now SharePoint developers.  Developing for SharePoint is a strange new world; we will cover what’s new, what’s the same, the top things that every SharePoint developer should know, and a few things to make every new developer’s life easier.

For new SharePoint developers, it can be hard to know where all the hooks are for your code to run. Web parts are obvious enough, and layouts and master pages are familiar from regular ol’ ASP.Net. But what about behind the scenes? What’s possible? What’s not? Where are the hidden gotchas?
Memory Management in SharePoint Development Matthew Vignau How to identify and minimize the impact of memory leaks.  Further discussion on the design considerations necessary with SharePoint development.

Guys: Please provide a little more of a description
Agile, SCRUM and SharePoint Michele Eichhorn SharePoint is a great out of the box application.  But, as we all know, our clients can come up with a multitude of functionality that they want that just isn’t there.  This leads to inevitable development projects; the number of which are only limited by their imagination.
 
Using an Agile Framework provides multiple opportunities to gauge the direction of a project and reassess your position through an iterative and incremental approach.  While agile methodologies abound (Crystal Clear., Extreme Programming, Feature Driven Development, DSDM,etc.) our discussion will concentrate on the SCRUM Methodology.  This methodology is characterized by short "sprints" where definitive acceptance criteria are captured.  Most importantly, the project can be readjusted based on end of sprint feedback.

The pros and cons of this approach will be compared to the others. Common problems with promoting from Dev to Staging to Production will be discussed in detail.
Setting up a SharePoint 2010 Continuous Integration process Tony Testa Continuous Integration (CI), in a nutshell, is a software practice where members of a team check in their work frequently resulting in multiple builds over the course of the day allowing for integration errors to be reported frequently.   Although commonplace in most organizations today it has taken quite a while to make its way to SharePoint projects.  With the development improvements in SharePoint/Visual Studio 2010 setting up CI for your SharePoint projects has never been easier.  In this session I will briefly cover CI fundamentals/benefits and demonstrate how to setup a CI process for a SharePoint 2010 project using one of the many available toolsets.

Migrating from 2007 to SharePoint 2010 – How to do it "Search First" Natalya Voskresenskaya & Paul Olenick Most of us have heard about the enhancements and power offered by SharePoint 2010 Enterprise Search, but many do not realize they can take advantage of it before upgrading their 2007/MOSS environment. In this session we will cover how to leverage Search for SharePoint 2010 and FAST Search for SharePoint today as part of your organizations roadmap to 2010. We’ll demonstrate the integration of SharePoint 2007 and SharePoint Search 2010 from the end-user perspective and discuss the many benefits “Search First” offers to an organization and their users.
