TechEd Europe is just round the corner (October 28-31, in Barcelona), and recently I’ve been heads-down preparing to speak there on the Office 365 track. Most of the other speakers on this track are Microsoft folks from the Office 365/SharePoint/Exchange product groups (including Rob Howard, Brian Jones, Vesa Juvonen, Steve Walker, Jeremy Thake, Mauricio Ordonez and Sonya Koptyev) so there’ll be some *great* information being dispensed – my aim is to sprinkle in some field experience there too :) As an added bonus, I hear that TechEd will have an announcement or two that developers in this space will like.
Overall, Andrew and I have a couple of cool demos to show, including a Word task pane app which analyses the contents of a document to find you similar items across your SharePoint environment/tenancy whilst you're working with the document.
Here are the session details:
