Title 
DEV 103 – Office 365 Add-Ins: A web developer’s playground

Abstract
Like most office workers, we all spend a significant amount of time in our “Microsoft Office” productivity tools. Even email is still a productivity tool. Productivity starts to diminish though if we have to move outside of our Office environment and hunt for information and/or complete business workflow processes.

With the creation of Office 365 Add-Ins, Microsoft has presented web developers with a new opportunity to create rich, engaging and integrated user experiences without having to leave the “experience” of our Office applications. Developers have the ability to create Add-Ins using HTML/JS/CSS and these run in the Windows Client, on the web, on our phones and even on the OS X desktop client.

In this presentation Mark will provide lots of demonstrations of how to get started with Office Add-Ins. These will include: creating your first Add-In in under 2 minutes, how to simplify workflow approval without having to leave your email client, how to pull report and analytics data into your Office product suite applications, integrating SharePoint as a Service, integration with Salesforce and how to integrate your content with cognitive analytics.

Come to the presentation and find out why Office 365 Add-Ins are a modern web developers playground.

Speaking at Dreamforce 2016 – Unleashing the power with Salesforce and Microsoft Office 365 Add-ins

I am so SO excited to annouce that I have been accepted to speak at the largest technology conference in the world, Salesforce’s Dreamforce conference in San Francisco. I will be co-speaking with my very good friend old Winklebeard himself (René Winkelmeyer). This opportunity is all down to him and I will be forever grateful. René became a Salesforce Evangelist back in May 2016. While we were at Engage.ug back in March this year we hatched a far fetched plan to be able to speak together and who’d have thought our world would have come together outside of the IBM Bubble.

We are going to talk about using Office Add-Ins to integrate with Salesforce. We are going to go well beyond the out of the box Office Add-Ins which Salesforce make available and show developers how to create their own from scratch. There will be lots of cool demonstrations, and hopefully we will both make it off stage without killing each other 🙂

I am really excited !!

Unleashing the power with Salesforce and Microsoft Office 365 Add-ins

Abstract
Salesforce has created great out-of-the box integrations for Office 365. But have you ever thought about creating your own integrations for maximising your Salesforce and Office investments? That’s where Office 365 Add-ins and Lightning come to the rescue. Based on real-world scenarios you’ll learn in this session all about the “how” and “where” of connecting Office and Salesforce. After starting with needed authentication setups between the systems we’ll quickly dive deep into the programmatic aspects. Be it RESTful or Lightning Out, we’ll get you covered! Come and see the session where Mark and René will demonstrate custom integration between Salesforce and Office applications on all platforms. Source code will be provided for all examples shown.

Speaking at GRANITE User Group in Chicago – 16 March 2015

I was very flattered to be asked by my friend Richard Moy to speak at the next GRANITE meeting in Chicago later this month.

I will be doing a repeat of the Angular.js presentation I did with Mark Leusink at ConnectED a this year. Mark unfortunately was not able to make it so it will be only the Marky Blank show this time.

Here is the information on the presentation and if you want to come the sign up link is at the bottom.

Hope to see you there 🙂

Abstract

The Future of Web Development – Write Once, Run Everywhere with AngularJS and Domino

AngularJS is currently the most popular JavaScript MVC framework. It’s driving more adoption and interest in the MVC/ REST API application architecture model. The ease of use, portability and re-usability of the code makes it an ideal solution for modern web developer needs. We’ll show you how to use AngularJS to modernize your existing Domino apps, while leveraging Domino’s best features. The speakers will also demonstrate how the power of architecting a solution based on AngularJS allows your Domino application to be made available through other platform interfaces. Taking “Write once, run everywhere” in the literal sense, you will see the same Angular/ Domino based app running natively in XPages, IBM Connections, Bluemix, IBM Worklight and more. Client-side JavaScript frameworks such as AngularJS are the future of web development – come and see it in action.
