SPTechCon in Boston is just around the corner but it’s not too late to register.  Hit up the registration link and reserve one of the last spots.  Boston is a great town and this event is jam-packed with tons of good content.  Don’t miss out!

I’m presenting three sessions at the conference:


Rev Your Engines: SharePoint 2013 Performance Enhancements
Deploying a SharePoint environment that can scale from several hundred to tens of thousands of users can be a daunting task which requires careful planning and testing.  In this session we will explore the basics of SharePoint capacity planning and discuss best practices for the configuration of databases, service applications, web applications, site collections and lists.  We will also review ways to avoid common mistakes and highlight tools and techniques administrators can use to monitor SharePoint performance and identify common causes of performance issues.
Get Some REST: Taking Advantage of the SharePoint 2013 REST APIs
The SharePoint 2013 App Model introduces a new programming framework that provides expanded capabilities for remotely hosted sites to interact with Office365 and on-premise environments. A key part of this new model is an expanded and updated set of REST API’s. In this session we will explore the new REST capabilities in SharePoint 2013, learn how they are used and discuss best practices for implementation, security and performance.
Who Are You and What Do You Want? Working with OAuth in SharePoint 2013
The new SharePoint 2013 App model extends native SharePoint applications into the cloud, allowing developers to write applications that interact with SharePoint data remotely.  With these new capabilities come additional challenges for managing security and user authorization via OAuth. Administrators, IT professionals, and developers should attend this session to familiarize themselves with the core concepts behind OAuth in SharePoint 2013, learn how best to configure and manage OAuth in their environment, and discover how OAuth is used in the SharePoint app model.
BONUS: Be sure to attend the OAuth session if you are a Doctor Who fan – test your knowledge and win some cool prizes!
See you in Beantown!
