Speaking at SharePoint Fest Chicago 2014

September 29 2014

I am very excited to announce that I will be speaking at SharePoint Fest Chicago 2014 on December 8 - 10, 2014 at McCormick Place Convention Center West. This is not a user group, but a paid conference.

The session:

DEV 201 - Beyond Responsive Design – Turning SharePoint into a mobile and modern web application platform

John Head and Chris Johnson - PSC Group

When you think about building modern and mobile applications with SharePoint, most people think about responsive design. But that is just the tip of the iceberg. In a word of MEAN and Twitter Bootstrap, mobile and modern web development means something much more. This session will cover the larger strategy around a mobile and modern web application platform and how to achieve that with SharePoint as the platform. We will then show you how we implemented this strategy on top of SharePoint 2013 and the outcome.
From the high level executive strategy to the implementation details, you will walk away from this session with the knowledge and excitement on how to not just make SharePoint responsive, but how to put it into the center of your modern web development and mobile application strategy.

PSC is one of four title sponsors for the event. We have 4 sessions (1 workshop and 3 regular sessions) and I am proud to be speaking with my coworkers and many of the best speakers in the SharePoint world. The session will cover PSC's thought leadership around SharePoint mobile and a real-world application that showcases Twitter Bootstrap added to SharePoint - with custom theme support. Will be a great session and hope to see many of you there!
