Day 3 of the SharePoint Conference 2012

On the third day of the SharePoint conference 2012 I’ve focus on Search, Azure and Office365, and Windows Phone

Search Driven Development

– Transform search results really easy using result sets and query rules

– Query rules perform on conditions and run actions against the result set. E.g if query contains the word “picture” the user is probably looking for pictures, with the query rule we can push a resultsblock with pictures alternatively styled

– Configure refiners to present themselves as sliders, multichoiche or barchart

– Configure refiners to load for specific queries with query rules

– Manage Search configuration in the site collection and web level

– This is THE way to build your intranet or internet website

Azure and SharePoint, better together

– Azure websites can communicate with SharePoint using OAuth tokens

– A Client App Part can show a page from azure with the required token information in the URL. So now you can integrate functionality which cannot be build in SharePoint in Azure and integrate with a Client App Part.

– Azure is still in Preview, GA (General Availlability) is not yet announced

Windows Phone app and SharePoint

– Developing Windows Phone Apps can be straightforward when it fits in the templates provided by the SDK

– Apps will run on Windows Phone 7, 7.5 and 8

– The Apps will use the REST/JSOM models to fetch and write data to SharePoint

Almost done here, tomorrow the last day of the conference
