SharePoint Fest Seattle 2015 Session Abstracts

DEV 203 – SharePoint 2013 and AngularJS Lessons Learned from the Trenches

Thanks to SharePoint 2013 it is a lot easier to be able to create client based solutions. AngularJS is one of the solutions out there that allows developers to create applications very quickly through an MVC implementation.

In this session we will go over the basics of AngularJS in regards to apps, controllers, services, and views. We will create a simple application built entirely through client technologies and in SharePoint. The principles learned here can be used anywhere in SharePoint whether it is a Farm Solution in an on-premise environment or in an app on Office 365.

Come learn a lot of the pitfalls to avoid and some best practices that will help you love AngularJS as another tool in a developers tool belt.

SIA 105 – PowerShell to the Rescue, For Developers and Admins

As a developer PowerShell was one of those tools that had to be used to deploy things to SharePoint, but it is so much more. PowerShell allows the easy creation of simple or complex scripts to accomplish so many things. PowerShell can even be used to manage your SharePoint environment remotely.

In this session we will cover the basics of PowerShell and then we will dive into some concepts that will be beneficial for anyone that works with the SharePoint backend. We will cover how to use PowerShell to automate both on premise and Office 365 SharePoint environments.

Announcing Release of AngularSP to Beta

I am announcing the initial release of my first open source project, AngularSP. I have been working more and more with AngularJS and I love it. AngularJS has saved me so much development time. The problem I saw was that every project I worked on, I had to embed/re-create the connections with the SharePoint REST services. I kept thinking, I really should just do a service similar to $http to encapsulate the functionality. So here is the initial release of the factory. Currently the library handles all of the CRUD operations on SharePoint lists hosted within the same domain as the calling page(no cross site calls as of right now, that will come later). The library will work with On-Premise SharePoint as well as SharePoint Online in Office 365. The plan is to add more functionality as time goes on.

The current priorities are listed on the CodeProject site but I am including them here as well for now.

  1. Automatic handling of Request Digest Token for REST Implemented
  2. Search Calls
  3. All implemented methods for the request executor.

Let me know if there are any features that you would like to see added.
