Term Store Usage and Benefits for Your Users

presented by Craig Pilkenton

Many of our users just throw documents into SharePoint Library's to get them in, or at best use nested folder structures reminiscent of a 1950's file cabinet. While this is easiest way for them to get stuff into the system, it can become painful to navigate to the right document later, let alone Search for it.

To help organize such messes, SharePoint's Term Store or Managed Metadata Application, allows for us to create reusable terms and enterprise keywords for user data that lives in a centralized and synchronized repository. Using this feature, you can make it findable for use later on by ensuring that everything being added from now on is organized in a consistent manner without putting your users through some tortuous processes.

In this presentation we'll walk through an overview of the Term Store, how it can help your users, and see examples that utilize this metadata for unique and simple solutions.

Code Solutions to Improve SharePoint Performance and Scalability via Caching

presented by Sean McDonough

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.

SharePoint's New Swiss Army Knife: The Content Search Web Part

presented by Sean McDonough

Each release of SharePoint has delivered new tools to make SharePoint sites sparkle, but few of these tools have been as exciting as SharePoint 2013’s Content Search Web Part (CSWP). Much like a Swiss Army Knife, the CSWP can be manipulated and configured in a multitude of ways. It can be used for everything from showing basic search results to displaying personalized content that is both interactive and dynamically generated. Whether you are using SharePoint on-premises or in the cloud, and whether you are “just” an end-user or a hard-core developer, the CSWP is one built-in web part you will want to understand in order to make your SharePoint sites shine. In this demo-heavy session, you will learn what you need to know to become productive with the CSWP in no time at all.
