Today I want to share with you a few of my impressions while I am in Seattle at TechReady, a very technical Microsoft internal conference.
Haven't used my SLR Camera much in the last days since I left New York City but I might post some photos later this week. I already did a lot pictures in my last 4 or 5 TechReady Conferences, like Alki Beach and Seattle Skyline
My Session Highlights so far:
- SharePoint 2013 Search Extensions & Connector Framework (including CEWS, BCS)
- SharePoint 2013 Search Scalability & Sizing
- SharePoint 2013 App Development
- SharePoint 2013 & Office 365 Hybrid Search Scenarios and Architecture
- Deliver Adaptive and Personalized Experiences with SharePoint 2013
- Power BI for Office 365 (Preview, incl Mobile Usage)
- PowerPivot & PowerView Deployments & Sizing
- Building an End to End Big Data Demo using HDInsight (Hadoop enPremise), PowerPivot and Power Map
- Yammer Sessions & Enterprise Social from Microsoft (incl Roadmap)
I also really enjoyed the XBOX One Demos and doing some photo shootings with brandnew Nokia Lumia 1020.
But most important was and is for me: meeting people! I really enjoyed to meet my old colleagues from FAST Search and new people from Yammer Team and SharePoint Product Management which I only knew by email in the past.
