Join Sean McDonough, National Office 365 Solutions Manager at Cardinal Solutions and Microsoft MVP, for the 3rd annual SharePoint Saturday event in Nashville. Administrators, end users, architects, developers, and other professionals using Microsoft's SharePoint and Office 365 platforms will spend a full day participating in presentations that address the various SharePoint versions - on-premises, SharePoint Online (Office 365), and hybrid.
In his role as National Office 365 Solutions Manager, Sean is responsible for the planning, guidance, and implementation of solutions that commonly involve Exchange online migration, SharePoint online deployment, and each of Office 365's other workloads. Additionally, Sean was just recently named a Microsoft Most Valuable Professional for his contributions to the Office Development and Office Servers and Services technical communities.
Sean's topics for SharePoint Saturday Nashville are:
- Code Solutions to Improve SharePoint Performance and Scalability via Caching
Caching is a critical variable in the SharePoint scalability and performance equation, but it’s one that’s oftentimes misunderstood or dismissed as being needed only in Internet-facing scenarios. In this session, we’ll discuss the reasons why developers need to be "cache aware" in order to sidestep common performance and responsiveness issues in SharePoint. We'll also investigate the array of programmatic options that are available to developers who wish to employ or extend SharePoint caching, including the ASP.NET Cache, distributed caching mechanisms, fragment caching, and post-cache substitution. By the end of this session, developers will have some new tricks to improve the performance and scalability of their SharePoint code using caching.
- The Essentials of SharePoint Disaster Recovery Planning
Are my nightly SQL Server backups good enough?” “Do I need an off-site disaster recovery facility?” “How do I even start the process of disaster recovery planning?” These are just a few of the more common questions that arise when the topic of SharePoint disaster recovery comes up. As with most things SharePoint, the real answer to each question is oftentimes “it depends.” In this business and process-centric session, we will be taking a look at the topic of SharePoint disaster recovery from multiple perspectives: business continuity planner, technical architect, platform owner, and others. Critical concepts and terms will be explained and defined, and an effective process for analyzing and formulating a disaster recovery plan will be discussed. We’ll also highlight some common mistakes that take place when working to build a disaster recovery strategy and how you can avoid them. By the end of this session, you will be armed with the knowledge needed to plan or review a disaster recovery strategy for your SharePoint environment.
