Meetings allows business users to collaborate with one another in real-time before, during, and after meetings by:
Jeremy explains his app creation experience:
“I’ve been a SharePoint Developer since SharePoint 2007 when ASP.NET was introduced as I was already an ASP.NET developer. When I found out about the new App Model I was super excited to know that I could start leveraging my Application Lifecycle Management experience more around automated unit/web testing and also leverage technologies like ASP.NET MVC4. I am the Product Manager and Architect on this product and the initial inspiration from this app was really around how I could personally become more productive with my team on tracking meetings. This became even more valuable an app once Microsoft announced they were deprecating Meeting Workspaces in SharePoint 2013 as this is now a potential replacement solution for customers.”
Jeremy felt his status as an MVP was helpful in the process of creating the Meetings app.
“Being an MVP really helped me to get feedback from the SharePoint Product Group when I had questions in the early beta days that I wouldn’t have gotten otherwise. But the “MVP” badge is earned through all the blogging and public speaking I do around SharePoint, and Microsoft people respect that, which means they take the time to help.”
