Optimizing Team Efficiency with Visual Studio and TFS
Saturday, 11:30am – Malvern Room
Presentation Link
Software development is not easy. Managing projects and a team of developers is not easy. Visual Studio, Visual Studio Code, Team Foundation Server, and Visual Studio Team Services can help you optimize your development team efficiency, even if you don’t work exclusively on the Microsoft stack.

This session will give an overview of features in each product while focusing on those related to increasing your development team’s efficiency. From project planning, to inline enhancements from CodeLens, this session will show developers, team leads, and project managers how they technologies work together to greatly increase team efficiency and reduce wasted time. Rarely do you find a session that attracts both developers and Project Managers, but this is it! Developers come and see all the new enhancements for Visual Studio and bring your Project Managers to show them how it will increase productivity. Project Managers come see the enhancements for project management and application lifecycle management and bring your developers to show them why they need to update burn down charts!

Getting Started With JavaScript Libraries for Office 365
Saturday, 1:30pm – Strafford Room
Presentation Link
Whether you are developing for Office 365 (or SharePoint on-premises), these days you are going to need some “go-to” JavaScript libraries to enhance your solutions. No matter what project I am on, over the past few years there are a number of fantastic JavaScript libraries I have learned to use and integrate with great success. They work with Apps, content editor web parts, .NET solutions, and anywhere else you can utilize JavaScript (Even CSS!). Some of my favorites covered in this session are jQuery, SPServices, jqPlot, and DataTables.

In this session I will show how to get up and running developing with JavaScript for Office 365 in multiple ways. Then I will demo some of my “go-to” libraries as well as a few others. I will discuss real world application of these libraries based on previous clients where I have used them. I will wrap up with a nice combined demo that works great in both Office 365 and SharePoint on-premises.
