Earlier in the week I was lucky enough to be interviewed for the MS Project Podcast by Prasanna Adavi and David Fletcher.
The interview was a little about Nintex Workflow for Project Server, some Office 365 and a fair dose of my love of all things Project Server.
The episode is available at ttp://www.msprojectpodcast.com/post/65349292852/ep-2-nintex-workflows-project-server-2013-and or you can subscribe to the ongoing podcast at http://feeds.feedburner.com/msprojectpodcast
This is a great initiative by Prasanna and David and I encourage you all to get subscribing and sharing your Project stories with them
Thanks to Jeremy Thake for the heads up, but I thought I would repost this here to alert some of the Project Server community that build apps for SharePoint and Project Server and read this blog.
Microsoft have launched a public UserVoice community to collaborate on feedback for the SharePoint app model moving forward. If you’re not familiar with UserVoice, it allows you to submit ideas and vote & comment on other user ideas.
Welcome to the Office Developer Platform UserVoice!
Let us know what you would like to see in future versions of the Apps for Office and SharePoint APIs and capabilities, MSDN documentation, code samples, and architecture guidance. This site is for suggestions and ideas.
There are already some great items up there, including a couple I have submitted.
If you’re developing apps for SharePoint or Project Server, make sure you get involved and be heard.
You couldn’t have helped but notice the blog has been a bit quiet recently. The reason is that I have been pretty busy in my day job at Nintex. Well, I am pleased to say I can finally reveal what I have been working on. This week we released Nintex Workflow for Office 365, a new product in the Nintex family that brings the power of Nintex Workflow to the Office 365 platform.
Nintex Workflow for Office 365 allows you to build workflows for Office 365 directly from within the browser, providing full access to the new workflow manager as well as world of cloud services through the Nintex Store. What makes it even more impressive is that it’s all done in the new SharePoint app model.
You can find out more by checking out nintex.com/workflowo365 or by heading over to the SharePoint store, installing the app in your Office 365 tenant and signing up for a trial.
Normal Project Server service will now resume :)
Today Brian Farnhill and I presented our session on Building Apps for SharePoint 2013 (with a little bit of Project Server thrown into the mix). The session was really well attended and we covered a heap of material on this massive topic. Unfortunately we ran a little overtime, so I’ll post a few of the demo’s I wanted to show up in the next couple of days.
In the meantime, I here are some additional links as promised to keep you going :)
Many thanks for those of you that came along, I will be posting up the video and slide deck in the next few days once it’s up on channel9.msdn.com.
Tech Ed Australia is being held on the Gold Coast between the 3rd and 6th September this year. I am happy to announce I will be speaking at Tech Ed Australia this year with my partner in crime, Mr Brian Farnhill with an awesome session entitled….
The SharePoint 2013 App Playbook – Your Guide to Building and Publishing a Great App
Office 2013 has brought an amazing new platform for developers to take advantage of, in the format of apps and the online app store. SharePoint 2013 takes full advantage of this and developers can now publish apps to the store and get their products out to a bigger audience than ever before with minimal time and effort. But if you have an idea for the next big app, how do you go about building it and publishing it for the masses? Well then my friend, this is the session for you! During this session Brian and Alex will take you through the full process for building and publishing apps for SharePoint and Project Server 2013 to the store. The boys will share with you the techniques and strategies you will need to create apps that will engage and amaze users, as well as what to do with an app to help make sure it makes its way through the app stores approval process and on to the app store. You’ll get to see real world stories and learnings from apps that are available on the store today, as well as what potential issues you might come across while working with your own apps. If you have ever thought about building an app or are in the process of creating one, this session is a must see!
We hope to see you there.
As promised a while back here are the three demonstrations from my Work Management in SharePoint 2013, What it is and why you’ll love it sessions at SPS and the Aussie SharePoint Conference. As I hate my voice on video, I have captioned them so you’ll miss out on some of the pearls of wisdom, but hopefully you will get the jist.
And don’t worry, I am still alive, just a little busy in my day job, but normal service will resume shortly.
